Shark Point

Shark Point

Shark Point is a Multi Pinnacle Dive Site

Shark Point is 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.

Lots of Coral

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

She 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.

Strong Currents

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 here 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.

Day Trip Diving In Thailand

When scuba diving in Phuket you'll be embarking on what is referred to as 'Day Trip Scuba Diving', day trips will take you to one or many of the Islands around Phuket that house our outstanding reefs & wrecks. Because these Islands are typically one to two hours from the mainland by boat it works out much better if you do multiple dives while you are out there. Day trip diving here in Thailand will usually see you doing two or three dives per day, which is awesome because you get to see a multitude of different dive sites, marine life and scenery for a relatively low price, plus we get you back home in time for dinner.

Day trip diving is suitable for divers of all levels, whether experienced, new, or total beginners, including Discover Scuba Divers, we have many options for day trip divers, including Phi Phi Island, Racha Noi & Racha Yai and the King Cruiser Wreck. Basically it is just a matter of deciding which day trip and dive sites best suit your level of diving comfort and then contact Aussie Divers to book it.
