Dive Hin Daeng

Big Fishes Wall

This dive site has many times been listed as one of the top ten dive sites in the world. It's situated about 30 nautical miles off Koh Lanta and with its diverse and abundant marine life, you are sure not to be disappointed. Located only 500 metres away from Hin Muang, dive centers usually offer a one day trip diving two spectacular dive sites.

Hin Daeng (Red Rock) is probably the largest pinnacle in all of Thailand. The top of the rock breaks the waters surface and has everything that Hin Muang has to offer and more. A series of walls and rocky pinnacles to explore. Close inspection of the walls give you sightings of lobster and shrimp and the rarely seen ribbon eel. Camouflaged scorpion fish are everywhere as are morays and all different species of trigger fish. Schools of large tuna, trevally and barracuda seem to circle the site constantly, as well as Manta, and occasionally some Whale Sharks.

On the northern tip of the site is a sand and coral seabed at 23m sloping down to depths in excess of 50m. Here is usually where you will see the sleeping leopard sharks lying on the sea floor. With every corner turned you will be amazed by the sheer size of the site and the varying degrees of marine life and coral formations. A wonder of the underwater world !!!

best dive site in the area, manta's, a lot! sometimes current, not too strong. best way is to hover at 18 to 8 meters. let the manta's come to you. don't block acces to the cleaning station. the mantas dont like it.
