Scuba Diving in Phuket, Thailand
Dive Site: Shark Point
Location: Phuket, Thailand
Description: Amazingly colourful series of limestone pinnacles
Depth: 30 metres (100 feet)
Visibility: 5 - 25 metres (15 - 80 feet)
This world-class dive site is an amazing feast for the eyes. As you start to descend the variety of colours from the combination of soft corals, hard corals, anemones and sea fans is spectacular. Marine life includes leopard sharks, turtles, pipefish, barracud, jacks, lionfish and so much more.
Iain Page, Instructor
This dive site is spectacular, as good as any I have seen in the Red Sea. Fabulous coral, many, many types of fish. I can recommend this site, you will enjoy it. I dived there in January, I am advanced open water, although I have only done 23 dives to date so I am not very experienced, but I have had some great dives.
Don, PADI Advanced Open Water
Shark Point is one of four fantastic dive sites in the stretch of water between Phuket and Phi Phi Islands. On a recent trip, as well as the beautiful soft and hard coral, leopard Sharks, lionfish, eels, sea snakes and a spectacular array of the ususal colourful SE Asian fishes, we were treated to a swim with a magnificent 7m whale shark. I would recommend any serious diver to include Shark Point as well as its sister sites Anemone Reef, Koh Doc Mai and the King Cruiser Wreck on their "must dive" list.
