Shark Point is justifiably one of the best dive sites in Phuket, a premier dive site hence there will always be numerous divers or boats on the site. The shark point dive site consists of 3 main reefs or pinnacles (1) the main site is identified by a small rock on the surface with a cross to warn off local boat traffic. The site is named after the local leopard sharks that sometimes visit the location. It can best be described as a line of remote limestone pinnacles running North to South. This is normally the last dive of the day trip and offers some fantastic underwater marine life. Shark Point pinnacles reefs consist of small to medium boulders clustered around several large rocks covered in zig zag oysters, barnacles, sea whips sea fans, and soft corals. Shark Point Pinnacles are isolated by sandy bottoms covered with slippers and mushroom corals. At the top of the Pinnacles lookout for Shrimp, Nudibranch, and Frog Fish.
Do you need a Private dive guide?
Have you ever been stuck on a Bus, Train, or Airplane sitting next to someone you find to be annoying? it can take the enjoyment out of the trip. Diving is similar in many ways.
Diving on holiday alone and need a dive Buddy? Take a Personal Private Divemaster (+ 1500 to add to the day trip price) that way you get to dive longer as the dive ends when you are low on air, and it won’t cost that much more than the day trip as we will throw in free equipment.
