Diving Hin Daeng & Hin Muang
Let us introduce you to an unforgettable diving experience, Hin Daeng and Hin Muang. These two dive sites are often referred to as one of the top ten dive sites in the world. They are situated only 35 kilometres south of Koh Lanta (55kms from Long Beach), a one-hour speedboat ride away.

The rock formation of Hin Daeng (Red Rock) breaks the surface and slopes gently down to a depth of 50 metres. The walls and rocks are covered with red and purple soft corals and anemones. These corals are home to millions of small reef fish, Boxer Shrimps, Octopus and Giant Morays. Schools of Jack Fish, Barracudas and Rainbow Runners circle around this reef to feed.
Between the months of November and March, Manta Rays are often found around here and you might even come eye-to-eye with the gentle giant, the Whale Shark, which is spotted several times a year at this site.
Hin Muang (Purple Rock) is located only a few hundred metres away from Hin Daeng. The top of the reef starts at a depth of around 12 metres and drops down to 70 metres, making it one of the deepest dive sites in Thailand.
The rock formation is covered in purple soft corals that feed on the currents. Even though the corals and marine life around this reef are breathtaking, keep an eye out in the blue, because there is always a surprise to be seen there. Schools of Tuna Fish, Barracuda and Jack Fish circle in the blue, but on a lucky day you might even come across a Manta Ray or a Whale Shark.
It has to been taken into consideration that these dive sites are in open sea and therefore sensitive to weather conditions (such as currents and waves). These same weather conditions make these sites a perfect feeding ground for Manta Rays, Whale Sharks and all kind of fish, but make them less suitable for beginner divers or snorkelers.
