Just 2 kms east of Koh Phi Phi Leh's Viking Bay lies the submerged and rarely dived Hin Klai (sometimes called Gareng Heng). This gently sloping pinnacle begins at around 6m, dropping to around 13m on the east side and 17m on the west side.
Covered with many hundreds of huge rocks, this circular reef is home to thousands of anemones, countless barrel sponges, huge gorgonian sea fans, staghorn coral gardens and what can seem like millions of reef fish.
With a good chance to see zebra sharks and bluespotted stingrays at Hin Klai, hawksbill turtles, huge schools of snapper, fusiliers, moorish idols, box and pufferfish, ghost pipefish, nudibranchs and hundreds of other species are also found here.
Out in the open, and difficult for dive boat captains to locate, the corals and marine life are in fantastic condition as Hin Klai is very rarely dived. As a result of this, divers can usually find they have the site to themselves making a great second dive after Koh Phi Phi or the HTMS Kledkaeo Wreck.
High Season trip schedule normally operates between October 14 and May 14.
We love to dive as much as possible, however all our trips depend on the weather, sea conditions, currents and minimum numbers and may be subject to change at short notice.
We may schedule a Shark Point & Anemone Reef trip or a KledKaeo Wreck trip on Saturdays, upon request, minimum 5 divers required - please let us know if you are interested.Enquiry / Booking
