Dive Site Highlights
Mild to Strong, most of the times only at the surface. So, it is important when you jump into the water to go straight to the descending line.
Although visibility varies and can sometimes drop below this average, the normal visibility around this site is between 15 – 20m.
See the Hin Daeng site map for more specific description.
Great to see Manta Rays, Whale Shark and pelagics. Whale Shark is randomly spotted all season long, January and February are the months for Manta.
