Description

Shark Point is another dive site representative of the area – it has a little bit of everything – though not many sharks any more apparently. That said, it pays to look up occasionally, you might find some blackfin barracuda watching you from up there.

Mainly, you’ll find the usual butterflyfish

On the bottom you might encounter an odd balloon fish (a kind of porcupinefish) – well they certainly look odd.
