After a brief kick, you’ll glide above a large, hollow lava pinnacle replete with nooks, crannies and all sorts of marine life. Pyramid Pinnacle’s aesthetic beauty is rivaled only by the site’s incredible biodiversity—of both coral and fish. Black and soft snowflake corals hide cleaner shrimp and lobster, while squirrelfish dance among several species of eels.

The resident conger eel, sleeping sea turtles, schooling chubs and Hawaiian flagtails swim in and around the site’s swim-throughs. Sand channels to the west shelter helmet shells, razor wrasse and peacock flounder. No matter which direction you turn, you’re surrounded by some of Lanai’s best diving.
