Hong Kong :: Ocean Point

About the Dive Site
This site is near Gruff Head so can both dives can be enjoyed in the same dive day. The area is a little more sheltered from the effect of the Tai Po Channel so it is possible to dive here when Gruff Head is unsuitable due to the current. The site is the rocky peninsula on the eastern side of Hoi Ha Wan (Jones Cove). As with Gruff Head, it is basically the end of a rocky peninsula that juts out into the sea. Even though the area is quite difficult to get to, it is well worth the effort.

There is a lot of undersea life scattered amongst the rocks and in the small rock crevices. Small sharks have been seen sleeping in the deeper crevices and the area has several large patches of live hard coral.

Mild tidal currents are present in exposed areas.

Hazards & Warnings
The normal warnings for diving in Hong Kong apply to this area.

This area is quite exposed so watch out for currents and swells during rough weather.

There are quite a lot of gill nets in this area, including many discarded left on the bottom.

This area is prone to being dynamite fished. Be very careful diving here around dawn.

Getting to Ocean Point
Ocean Point is the peninsula west of Gruff Head it can only be dived from a boat. This location is easily reached in the summer months by rented walla-walla from Wong Shek Pier in Sai Kung. Other possibilities are by large boat from either Hebe Haven (Pak Sha Wan) or the Tai Po Harbour.
