Shark Point
(2 dives, 20 mins cruise time)

Shark point diving, Thailand

Shark Point was named for the frequent sightings of leopard sharks (Stegostoma fasciatum) in the area. Known as Hin Mu Sang by locals, this divesite lies nearby the Anemone Reef and King Cruiser Wreck, and is made up of 3 main pinnacles that lie in an almost north-to-south formation, with the axis slightly tilted to the east. They are located around 1,5 hour boat ride from Chalong Bay but only 20 mins from our dive centre!

This site has the most diversity of fish and corals among the 3 divesites in the area. Each pinnacle has areas covered with striking purple and pink soft corals, sea fans ranging from 50 cm to as big as a person, as well as beds of table coral, staghorn coral and coral head. Pinnacle No.1 is the only one visible from the surface and has a small lighthouse.

The dive usually starts from one pinnacle and finishes at the next pinnacle, with the direction dependant on the current. Some species of marine life that inhabit the area are scorpionfish, lionfish, pufferfish, blue-ringed angelfish, snappers, groupers and a few types of eels. And of course Shark Point is the the place to go for divers eager ti spot big fish. There is always a good chance of finding leopard shars lying on the bottom next to the pinnacle or hiding under coral heads or inside small crevices.

This is fairly easy divesite as the depth ranges from shallower waters of 5-10m to 20-24m.
