Well it looks like I was the only one that had never dove the Nixies. These are a series of pinnacles located south of Flintstones. The pinnacles are spread in a 300x300ft area. Depending on who you ask there are named: Volcane, Nixies, Dos Gatos, etc. All the same name or different pinnacles with different names.

Clinton, Joakim and myself got in the water at about 10am, and Joakim took us for a nice dive. We first went counter-clock wise on around the Nixies, while looking at the terrain. We had great vis (80ft) and Clinton located a nice rat fish. We swam th some nice canyons full of gorgonias, and we found some very large nudies. After about 20min at the based we moved up for another 15 min at the shallower area (150 range). We met with the kitties, did some hand-shaken and went up the shallow peak in the 110fr range. We tried to jump toward Dos Gatos but we over shoot it so we ended ascending at the 110ft peak.

Great dive!
