Anemone Reef and Shark Point
“Lify & Colorful pinnacles”
Fishy reefs with variety inhabitats.
Heading to Koh Phi Phi and then continuing in a north-west direction towards Phuket, there is a collection of dive sites located very close one to another. Anemone reef & Shark point are all very popular, but not so frequented by Koh Lanta dive boats, due to their position in the open sea where strong currents and low visibility can occur often. This should not discourage experienced divers though, as the sites offer a tremendous amount of varied marine life and are truly unique compared to other dive sites in the area.
Full life on siteThere is an abundance of beautiful soft corals at Shark point, creating home for a very wide and diverse collection of marine life; nudibranchs, shrimps, morays, sea horses, turtles, ghost pipefish and cuttlefish all inhabit this splendid site. Even some sharks, such as leopard and bamboo sharks can be seen resting on the sand or under large rocks. This is truly a magnificent site to spend time in exploring all of the little cracks and crevices. Comparing to other of our dive sites, Shark Point Two that lies towards the south, has one of the finest collections of huge Gorgonian to be seen, with many fans packed closely together and with diameters of more than 3 meters across. Shark Point is an awesome dive site that you should not miss out!
Colorful and joyful dive siteAll they compete for a very limited living space; different species of morays (especially the small white eyed moray eels) can be seen sharing the same crevice; predators such as trevallies swim in the blue hoping to pick off any fish that dare to stray too far from the protection of the reef. Numerous species of shrimps, nudibranchs and exotic macro marine life can be found from the depths up to the surface, like sea horses that make their homes within the Gorgonian fans. If you are fortunate enough, you may even find leopard sharks resting on the sand at the base of this most spectacular and more than magnificent pinnacle.

Big Thanks to Blue Planet for a great day 3/3. And specially thanks to Brice who was a very professional and nice diveinstructor. He gave me a very good refresh for my OW cert because its been a while sins my last dive. After that we did two really good dives at Koh Bida.

Together with my son and daughter we booked a day dive trip to Koh Haa, Hin Muang and Hin Daeng, with Blue Planet Divers. Although a bit expensive (specially after Koh Tao), we were very satisfied with the high quality of their service. The office staff were kind, friendly and helpful with information in both english and french. Highlights: catamaran trip to dive sites with tasty food and enough space to chill and admire the beautiful landscape * well maintained equipement * Koh Haa is a must! With caves, extraordinary biodiversity and a gorgeous setting. Thanks to Yann, Johan and Fins for their diving support. Highly recommended!
