Dive Hin Daeng

Mu Ko Lanta National Park

Diving Hin Daeng from Koh Lanta

Diving at Hin Daeng & Hin Muang is one of the highlights of a dive trip to south west Thailand.

Hin Daeng (Red Rock in Thai) breaks the surface and slopes gently down to a depth of over 50 metres on one side, with a steeper drop on the other side. The red-coloured rocks and walls are covered with red and purple soft corals, anemones and algae.

After diving at Hin Muang, we can moor up our speedboat to the rocky outcrop of Hin Daeng, have a relaxing lunch, and plan the second dive.

Diving Hin Daeng from Koh Lanta with Dive & Relax

The dive site of Hin Daeng features a sloping channel with near vertical sides running through the centre of the dive site. The channel provides shelter from some of the stronger currents and is home to many species of marine life that you won’t normally see on the outer parts of this reef.

The rocks and corals around Hin Daeng are home to millions of small reef fish, boxer shrimps, ghost pipefish, frogfish, octopus and giant morays. Schools of jack fish, barracudas, trevally, mackerel and rainbow runners circle around this reef to feed.

Between the months of November and April, Manta Rays are often found circling Hin Daeng’s cleaning stations, picking up cleaner wrasse on their way past, and depositing them on the return visit.

Hin Daeng is connected by a deep underwater ridge to Hin Muang, located just a few hundred meters away.

If you don't want to waste most of the day on a larger, slower dive boat, our speed boats are the perfect way to dive Hin Daeng & Hin Muang from Koh Lanta.
