Designated a Marine Sanctuary in 1992, Shark Point (Hin Musang) is located mid way between Koh Phi Phi and Phuket, approximately 50 - 60 minutes from Koh Lanta by speedboat. It is a magnificent dive site made up from three pinnacles running roughly north to south, with the largest pinnacle to the north breaking the surface and supporting a light beacon to warn passing ships of danger.
Shark Point thanks its name to the presence of many zebra sharks, particularly during the low season when there are fewer visitors to the dive sites. The pinnacles are covered with Gorgonian sea fans, sponges and spectacular pink and purple soft corals, and a short swim south from the first pinnacle at around 18m will bring you to the second pinnacle.
In addition to the zebra sharks, fusiliers, snappers, barracuda, trevallies and thousands of other reef fish surround these pinnacles. Together with seahorses, ghost pipefish, cuttlefish and many smaller critters, the high levels of nutrients in the waters attract a huge variety of marine life, making Shark Point one of the most spectacular dive sites in this area.
The third pinnacle lies slightly further south in deeper waters and is rarely dived due to the shorter dive times at this depth.
As with many dive sites, conditions on Shark Point can be variable and it's more suitable for experienced divers than beginners. It's best to dive this site when surface conditions are good, avoiding times of the month when stronger currents sometimes run in this area.
Just a few hundred meters from Shark Point lies Anemone Reef (Hin Jom) which is dived together with Shark Point in the same trip.
High Season trip schedule normally operates between October 14 and May 14.
