Andaman Sea Dive Sites - Shark Point

Shark Point (Hin Mu Sang) is 3 large rock pinnacles the largest of which breaks the surface and is classified as a marine sanctuary. This reef is home to an incredible profusion of sea creatures, including pelagic fish, Leopard Sharks (its name was acquired due to the frequent sightings of these ) as well as soft and hard corals. The density and diversity of marine life here is compared to the best coral reefs anywhere in the world.

It is made up of 3 main pinnacles that lie in an almost north to south formation. The pinnacles are about 10-15 metres apart, each has areas civered with beautiful soft corals in pinks and purples, sea fans, some as big as divers as well as beds of hard corals including table corals,staghorn corals and coral head.

Pinnacle number 1 is visable from the surface and has a small lighthouse. Nos 2 and 3 are submerged. There is a great diversity of marine life here, it is impossible to properly cover all 3 pinnacles in one dive!

Look for scorpionfish, lionfish, nudibranchs, moray eels, snappers and groupers to name but a few. Other small treasures to be found are tiger seahorses and the ornate ghostpipefish.

This dive site is for intermediate to experienced divers only, so we recommend that you take Advanced Open Water Diver training before diving here.
