The dive site has been named after the docile Leopard Sharks that are often encountered resting on the sandy bottom of the area. Approaching from the sea Shark Point appears as a tiny rock outcropping of no particular interest but beneath the surface lies a vast multicolored reef teeming with marine life.

Shark Point is one of Phuket’s best dive sites, part of a Marine Sanctuary. The site consists of the series of pinnacles. These pinnacles are covered in orange and yellow sea fans as well as lots of soft corals.

The main attraction here, in addition to sharks and vast schools of tropical fish are the colorful soft corals and sea fans that decorate this huge limestone pinnacle. The reef can be broken into three main sections and most divers could spend several days at least exploring the many interesting facets of the site which is arguably the most popular of all the local day-diving sites. Currents can be brisk at this site but they tend run parallel to the reef sections and allow for an excellent drift dive back to the dive boat.

On the shallow part of this dive, you will be able to spot Green Sea turtles as well as Anemone Fish, Ribbon Eels, Octopus and Scorpion fish. There are often juvenile white tip reef sharks seeking shelter beneath the coral bommies at around 18 m. The deep ridges at this dive site are characterized by a striking display of Sea Fans, Giant Barrel Sponges, Sea Whips and stony corals. From 18  m to 30 m the reef shelters many amazing wonders. It is a nutrient rich area and attracts many schooling fish such as Yellow Lined, Humpbacked, and Black Snappers. This dive site is also one of the best sites for encountering White and Black Tip Reef Sharks.

Possible to dive all year-round. The average air temperature varies from 27-29C/81-84F all year round. The water temperature is 27-30C/81-85F.
