Shark Point

Shark Point

Shark Point is a Multi Pinnacle Dive Site

Named after the Leopard sharks that frequent the site often on the sandy bottoms. The sight is made up of three main pinnacles running from north to south. The pinnacles are number as they head in a south direction and also get deeper as they go. The first pinnacle is the only pinnacle that is visible from the surface. Commonly only pinnacles one and two are dived, normally starting at pinnacle one, depending on the currents with the depth of pinnacle three (about 15 metres) at the shallowest being an issue towards the end of a dive.

Much like Koh Doc Mai on it’s day it can be stunning however visibility and strong currents can hamper a dive.

Shark Point is blessed with a beautiful selection of the Giant Gorgonian Fan Coral, some as big as 3 metres, a stunning selection and bizzarly shaped barrel sponges and colourful range of soft anemones. This site has a fantastic mix of marine life which delivers both the large 3.5 metres Leopard sharks and small creatures such as Ghost Pipefish and Seahorse.

Recently there has been an abundance of Kuhl’s Stingrays and Cuttlefish in between the first and second pinnacle. This site has at times provided some rare and wonderful sea creatures lurking about including Whale Sharks, Spotted Eagle ray and recently even a Spotted Shovelnose Ray has tantalized the senses.

This dive site is more suited to experienced divers and can often be intimidating to beginner divers given the strong currents and rough seas. With careful planning it can be dived by novice divers however extra care should be taken.

This is a great scuba diving site and one of the best in the Phuket area.

This is a day tip site and is often done in conjunction with either, Phi Phi, Anemone Reef, Koh Doc Mai and King Cruiser Wreck.

Getting There

Dive boats go to Shark Point every day of the week as a part of a 3-dive combo with Phi Phi (intermediate day) or Koh Doc Mai and King Cruiser (advanced divers day). Shark Point can be substituted with Anemone Reef depending on the currents and weather conditions.

All scuba diving dive sites are at the discretion of the tour leader on the day. Dive sites are selected based on the weather conditions, currents, safety and suitability to majority of divers on the boat. We cannot guarantee specific dive sites prior to the boat departing.

Do I Need to Know How To Swim to Scuba Dive?

This is a question that I often get asked, and really it is not as simple as YES or NO. If you want to become a certified scuba diver by doing the PADI Open Water Diver Course then the answer is yes. In the PADI Open Water Diver Course it is specified that you have to be able to swim 200 metres with any stroke and also have to be able to tread water or float for at least 10 minutes. The reason for this is not for the fact that scuba diving requires you to swim, but rather it is for yours and your groups safety. In the unlikely event that your BCD (Buoyancy Control Device) was to falter then there would be no device to keep you afloa [...]
