Hin Deang & Hin Muang
“Much more than a dive!”
Within Top 10 dive places around the world.
Hin Deang Hin Muang are the most famous dive sites that can be reached from Koh Lanta. These beautiful Thailand sites will give you the best chance of seeing large pelagic, like manta rays and whale sharks. Strong currents can occur from time to time, so a reasonable level of experience and good buoyancy control is recommended for divers wishing to visit these sites.
The Hin Muang’s sister dive site, it got its name because of large amount of red soft corals topping this large rock that can be seen throughout the dive. Hin Daeng is a huge pinnacle that rises from the ocean floor at a depth of approximately 50 meters. Only a few hundred meters distant from Hin Muang, but three times bigger in size. Hin Daeng offers divers a large variety of dives in one site. With walls, canyons, gentle and steep sloping reefs, pinnacles, and thousands of tiny holes where many wonderful small and varied creatures reside, it has something for every diver to welcome. From small macro creatures to large hunting fish or even stunning manta rays and the occasional whale shark, it is a dive that should not be missed!
This dive site got its name from the large amount of purple soft corals that completely cover the rocks and can be seen throughout the dive. The site itself is a long narrow ridge which rises from the ocean floor at a depth of approximately 65 meters and goes to its highest point of approximately 8 meters. It can be accessed by a permanent buoy line near the shallowest point. The diver travels along the walls and steep reefs that the site consists of, including the peaks providing cleaner stations where manta rays and whale sharks swim very close to be groomed by the smaller reef fishes. With a plethora of marine life inhabiting the site, looking out into the blue also offers the chance of seeing trevallies, rainbow runners, barracudas, mackerel and tuna fish hunting in schools.
