Breathtaking. Superb location.

Technically not a dive though or am I being harsh ?

Dunno Peter, they do say Cliff Diving, maybe you should shoot an email off to Red Bull and alert them. They're going to feel very silly

Judging by how they got the red bull logo in on every shot I think they know what they are doing

The guy said that's a natural pool? Perfectly rectangular? It's not a quarry or something like that?

Completely natural. The island is a remnant of a Karstic limestone landscape and it tends to break up along lines. The pool is open to the sea underwater, as far as I recall.
