Hin Daeng and Hin Muang

Dive Site Description Hin Daeng and Hin Muang are two World class, top 10 dive sites. Most divers come to Koh Lanta, because it is the closest island to these famous dive sites. Famous because of the beautiful soft corals and depth (max.60 meter), these are truly advanced dive sites. Furthermore you can do your Padi Advanced Course on Hin Daeng, if you are not an advanced diver, yet. These dive sites can be challenging, because of current, waves and are also deeper sites. Hin Daeng and Hin Muang are advanced dive sites, plus you need recent diving experience (within the last 2 years). They always have currents (sometimes down), waves on the surface and can be challenging, especially around full moon and new moon. AOW Required

Because these pinnacles are the deepest drop offs in Thailand, they consequently draw a lot migratory deep water fish here. Therefore it is a great idea not only to focus on macro life, but also have a look into the blue deeper water for surprising visitors. A lot of migratory giants (like whale sharks and manta’s) frequent these beautiful rocks, due to cleaning stations on both under water pinnacles. It takes around 4 hours by big boat and around 1,5 hours by speedboat from Koh Lanta to these magnificent dive sites. These mountains are covered with red and purple soft corals, that move in the ocean, like a garden of flowers.
