Shark Point 3 Dive Day Trip
Shark Point is justifiably regarded as one of Phuket’s premier diving destinations hence there will always be numerous divers or boats on the diving 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. Shark point dive site is often 1 of the sites that can be combined with a 3 dive trip to Phi Phi Island or whilst Diving the King Cruiser and are a suitable dive for Open water to advanced certified divers
Shark Point scuba diving is a full-day trip on a large boat that takes you on a 3 dive trip and has the best chances for divers to dive with sharks. This Phuket scuba diving trip will blow your Fins off when it comes to seeing some of the most diverse marine life packed into every square inch of this famous dive site.
Shark point can be described as having 3 sites all called Pinnacles that are narrowly separated but forms a huge dive site. The Main Shark Point Pinnacle 1 is above the surface at the north, this is normally the entry point for the dive.
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.
All three Shark Point reefs combine to comprise a large grouping of submerged rocky limestone outcrops covered with soft and hard corals. Leopard sharks also known as Zebra Sharks put this dive site at the top of the list and making this the main reason for Scuba Divers from all over Asia and the world to travel to Phuket to visit Shark Point.
Sharp Point diving trips are combined with PADI Advanced Open water courses as its a popular location for divers in education.
