The underwater photography that you will see at the links below is just a small portion of the Thumbs Up pinnacle. Documenting the complete pinnacle in two dives was not possible but these pictures are here to give you an idea of the color and diversity that you will see. We have also provided some interpretations and descriptions of the specific area captured so that visitors can understand how fantastic these cold water environments are.
