Hin Bida is accesible for all. Leopard Sharks can be spotted also when snorkeling.
Come and see the Leopard Sharks while diving or snorkeling, they’re almost always present at Hin Bida Diving site from Koh Lanta!
Hin Bida Diving site is a submerged reef site located between the Bida Islands and Koh Lanta island.
At low tide the reef breaks the surface and gradually drops to 20m, the majority of this dive is no deeper than 14m making it a good option if doing a three dive trip. The reef lies north to south, with three fingers towards the south and southwest that are separated by sandy patches. This part of the reef is the most vibrant.
Leopards Sharks are often seen here lying on the sandy areas. In addition, look out for Stonefish and Pharaoh cuttlefish with a very distinct blue and white pattern.
Typical Diving Day Trip
Hin Bida is usually combined with Koh Bida Nok, Koh Bida Nai or the Kled Kaew Wreck dives. This dive site is one of the few that are open all year round. During the typical diving day, we like to dive in Hin Bida as the 3rd dive because of the amazing afternoon light and the shallow depth. It costs only additional 900thb to dive here as your third dive!
Are you a freediver? Holding your breath and swimming along the beautiful sea creatures of Hin Bida is definitely something for your memories!
