Manta's are back at Hin Daeng & Hin Muang

Manta’s are back at Hin Daeng and Hin Muang

Normally manta’s start visiting Hin Daeng and Hin Muang from about end of November, but they are early back this year. So far we have seen 3 at the same time.
This season we have the opportunity to go to Hin Daeng and Hin Muang every other day (weather and currents permitting ofcourse) by fast catamaran boat for 3 dives. The dive sites will usually be Hin Daeng, Hin Muang and a dive site at Koh Ha on the way back. Start time for this trip is 7 AM and usually the boat is back around 3.30 PM.
Please pass by Andaman Dive Adventure Lanta’s dive center or contact us on: 0901596661 or by email on info@andamandiveadventure.com

Divers from Andaman Dive Adventure Lanta see whale sharks around Koh Ha and Hin Daeng

Whale shark early around Koh Lanta

Every year whale sharks follow a path between Malaysia past Koh Ha, Hin Daeng and the Bidas to the Similan Islands. Normally divers see them in these area’s from end of November until end of February. This year though we have had almost every day sightings at Koh Ha, Hin Daeng , Bidas and Koh Rok for the last 2 weeks already. In actuality we have had whalesharks pretty much most of our green season.

The new dive center of Andaman Dive Adventure Lanta is located in Longbeach area

Newly build dive center at Longbeach, Koh Lanta

After building whole rainy season, Andaman Dive Adventure Lanta is proud to show divers their new dive center at Longbeach street area. Now we can offer dive students more space with bigger classrooms (with aircon or fan). Our Padi dive instructors and divemasters also have more space in our wetroom. This also makes it easier for divers to try out gear and for gear to probably hang to dry. For our students and divers with their own diving gear, we now have a spacious washing/drying area. Outside of the shop Yupha has a comfortable dive bar and Lee offers in our showroom the latest dive equipment for sale.
We are now located in a different area then before (WATCH OUT: WE HAVE MOVED TO LONGBEACH AREA). We no longer have a location inside Lanta Island Resort. Please contact us on: info@andamandiveadventure.com for directions or if you need information about nice places to stay or things to do in our area. We are located at the street, next door to The One Place and across from Mr. Green and Krua Kritsana Restaurant.
