Sharktooth Point

At the northeast end of the maw is a collection of stones that overlook a small point that shelters a rather protective coral reef system. The unique part about this is that with the sway of the tides, the system off Sharktooth Point fills with deep water and then traps big predators in near the shore if they are not careful enough to get out before the tide goes and makes the place shallow water. This does not happen all the time, but it is common enough that from the stones ashore visitors can see if there is danger lurking offshore.

Once the tide goes out these predators are vulnerable for hunting to anyone that wants to spear them. Conversely, the spear fisherman is vulnerable to the big predators as well. Because the water is shallow, only shallow bottom boats or paddleboards can get spearfishermen out onto the reef to gather foodstuffs. The reefs are dangerous to walk upon when the water is shallow enough to do so. They can cut feet and cut through the leather so wading is not often a good option. Snorkeling is acceptable for collecting foodstuffs from the reef, but it does leave swimmers open to predators as well.

Conversely, during high tides, the fishing for these types of predators is fantastic in the traditional sense and out of boats. While spearfishing is out due to deep waters, the big predators flock in to feed during the tide.

The rocks of Sharktooth Point themselves have a mysterious air about them. Many of them are marked with arcane and mysticla symbols in the form of very old Petroglyphs.
