Hin Daeng diving site is definitely the best of Thailand Scuba dive spots.
This site, together with Richelieu Rock on the North of the country, is unique because nowhere else you will combine oceanic Manta and Whale Shark in such a wonderful healthy reef background. Therefore, you better do not miss diving in Hin Daeng during your diving holiday in Koh Lanta!
We said that Hin Daeng is amongst the best Koh Lanta dive sites to see the manta but it is much more than this! The entire dive place is covered with red soft corals which it is named after. Shoals of pelagic species (including, on lucky days, Whale Sharks) swim close to the stunning drop off walls (up to 60 meters!).
A perfect place to complete your Advanced Diver Course, Deep Dive Course, or Underwater Photography Course! If you are only an Open Water Diver certified with less than 20 dives logged, do not worry because you are allowed to see this spot by applying for a Deep Dive Adventure only for 500 thb extra. Hence, if you logged more than 20 dives without holding an advanced diver certification you can dive Hin Daeng and Hin Muang with no issues.
