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

Location: Shark Point


Shark Point - Phuket Day Trip Dive Site
•    Distance: 29 km (16 Miles) (from Phuket)

•    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, AWARE Fish Identification, Peak Performance Buoyancy, Boat, Drift  
Details:
Shark Point is made up of principally three submerged mounts/pinnacles. The main pinnacles run from north to south, with the northern most breaking the surface by a couple of meter, this pinnacle has a northern shipping cardinal to warn vessels of the underwater obstruction.
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.
