Shark Point
Distance: 29 km (16 Miles)
Boat Trip: 1,5 Hour
Depth: 6-24 Meters (20-80 ft)
Visibility: Fair to excellent
Currents: moderate
Type of Dive: Soft Coral/ 3 main Pinnacles
Ideal for Nitrox, Multi Level, UW Photography, Naturalist, Deep Diver

Details:

Shark Point consists of three sub sea pinnacles, the largest just breaking the surface and appearing as a barren rock outcropping.
Also known as Hin Muang or Shark Rock. This site commonly has strong ocean currents that bring nutrient rich water which tends to draw in Whale Sharks and

other pelagics for feeding. Divers here are virtually guaranteed to swim amongst enormous schools of Great Barracuda, Five-lined Snappers, Gold-striped

Fusiliers and the occasional Leopard Shark resting quietly on the seabed. The reef consists of three main sections and most divers could spend several days

at least exploring the site which is arguably the most popular of all the local day-diving sites. Currents can be brisk at this site but they tend run

parallel to the reef sections and allow for an excellent drift dive back to the dive boat

Anemone Reef
Distance: 29 km (16 Miles)
Boat Trip: 1,5 Hour
Depth: 6-24 Meters (20-80 ft)
Visibility: Fair to excellent
Current: Fair to moderate
Type of Dive: Site is complete submerged, start about 5m./ Soft Coral
Ideal for Nitrox, Multi Level, UW Photography, Naturalist, Deep Diver

Details:

This unique dive-site is soars 30 meters up from the seafloor to just beneath the surface then abruptly ends and drops back to a bottom of sand and oyster

shells.
This barely submerged reef is located less than a mile north of Shark Point. The Thai name for this site is Hin Jom (underwater rock). Although not as

colorful as Shark Point this site is famous for its huge fields of sea anemones covering every conceivable surface and swing and sway with the current

creating an illusion of it being a giant living rock.
The profusion of sea anemones and the nutrient-rich water are a magnet to a constant parade of reef fish seeking food and shelter. Enormous schools of

tropical fish, snappers, groupers, and colorful clown fish, along with larger game-fish like jack and barracuda, and the occasional leopard shark can be seen
passing by. Anemone Reef is also famous as a site for to viewing lionfish sometimes encountered in groups of dozens or more.

Koh Doc Mai, this small, jungle topped island lies halfway between Shark Point and Phuket. It provides some of the best wall diving in the area.

The marine life on this site is abundant, divers are virtually guaranteed to swim amongst enormous schools of Great Barracuda, Five-lined Snappers, Gold-striped Fusiliers and the occasional Leopard Shark resting quietly on the seabed (which is why the site is called Shark Point). The currents can be brisk, which is why you can find not just hard corals like stag horn or lettuce, but also soft corals on this site like gorgonian sea fans. Shark Point has always something of interest to see, which is why it is one of the most popular day trip dive sites to visit from Phuket Island.
