Shark Point

12-30m

Certification / Experience

All Levels, Some experience preferred

 

Black Tip and White Tip Sharks, Sting Rays, Schools of Jacks and Snapper, Cuttlefish, Barracuda, Turtles, Bump head Parrot Fish. Pygmy Sea Horses

A very varied site. For beginners, the 12 – 18 metre level has Green and Hawksbill turtles, colourful reef fish, lion fish and scorpion fish.  As the site drops deeper, it reaches a sandy bottom with a series of progressively deeper canyons from 18m to 27m where black and white tip sharks, stingrays and schools of jacks and snapper hang out. Around full moon we often see schools of bump head parrotfish too. Currents at Shark Point can be unpredictable and so particularly for the deeper sections, you will be more comfortable if you already have some experience with currents.

A wall in 2 sections. The first to around 12m deep, followed by a short sandy slope and a second wall down to 18 metres. The bottom of the wall turns into a slope with several bommies. In the shallows at the end of the second wall, we often see a bay eagle ray circling. A great night dive too!

Drop in to a shallow sandy area and follow a chain of bommies towards the main “brainiac” pinnacle. Spot the scorpion fish, lion fish and shrimps around the pinnacle, and don’t forget to look up at the cloud of colourful reef fish above you. A couple of circuits of the Brainiac and those certified may head deeper to some more Bommies and across a sandy stretch looking for spotted sting rays and fields of garden eels before finishing in the shallows hopefully with some turtles. Usually very little current, this site is ideal for all levels.

The shallows are full of coral bommies and colourful reef fish. The shallows turn into a steep slope descending to 30+ metres. Spend some time looking into the nooks and crannies between the coral and find all the little creatures hiding there. Different depths along the slope offer a variety of things to see, making it a great multi level dive. The deep ridges provide entertaiment for adventurous divers, the shallows are great safe place to do your very first dive or refresh diving skills.

West of Gili Meno, a pontoon sunk in the early 1990’s. Coral has now covered the wreck, and fish moved in to all the nooks and crannies. Beautiful table corals hide illusive frog fish, and a school of Bat fish hover in the corner. A great introduction to wreck diving with usually gentle current, and shallow enough for Open Water divers. For those certified to go below 18m, there are a series of beautiful bommies and corals at 20 – 22m with schools of colourful reef fish, & moray.

Biorocks

 

Dive Type

Slope and Artificial Reef Shore dive

Depth

5 – 22m

Certification / Experience

All levels

Lion fish, Feather Stars, Octopi, Puffers, Crocodile Fish, Turtles, Moray Eels, Razor Fish

Named after the steel structures placed along the slope to deter beach erosion and to encourage coral regeneration, these structures come in the shape of marine creatures such as Turtles, Dolphins and Mantas. A small electrical current passes through the steel, drawing calcium carbonate towards the corals that have been transplanted to the structures, allowing them to grow faster than normal. The site is a fascinating look at reef restoration in progress, and used by many juvenile fish as a safe haven from predators. This site also makes a fantastic night dive.
