North Point

As the name suggests, North Point is the northernmost dive site in the Similan Islands, located on the north side of Island 9. The terrain is varied, with massive granite overlaps forming large walls, channels, and swim-throughs.

Large predatory fish such as sharks, anemone tuna, and kingfish are found in the deeper areas. Near the rocky bedrock, you can see anemone flyfish, seahawk, and pygmy sea horses.
