This site is in the Table Mountain National Park Marine Protected Area since 2004. A permit is required. The site is within the Karbonkelberg restricted area.
The name “Twin Towers” is a reasonable description of the pinnacle, which is about 14 m high and about 15 m diameter near the base, and is split from about halfway up into east and west pinnacles, of similar height and width, both tapering to fairly blunt tips.
Maximum depth is about 34 m. and the top of the pinnacles is about 20 m. (Average depth of a dive is likely to be about 30 m.)
Visibility is likely to be similar to other sites in the vicinity, but may be better at it is deep enough to be less affected by surge than shallower sites, and is deep enough to be below the surface algal bloom some of the time.
The split pinnacle outcrop rises from a narrow east/west base reef of boulders and rubble surrounded by sand
Geology: Pre-cambrian granite corestone outcrop of the Peninsula pluton.
