Hin Daeng/Hin Muang (Red Rock/Purple Rock)
Probably the most famous dive site in Thailand, Hin Daeng/Hin Muang is accessible from Koh Lanta as a day trip. It is no surprise why divers from all over the world come to Koh Lanta especially to dive these two sites. These giant pinnacles located in the middle of the Andaman Sea, offer dramatic underwater scenery, with steep walls covered in soft red and purple corals, dropping right down to 60m. Hin Daeng and Hin Muang has it all and we can offer you the chance in a lifetime to experience these beautiful reefs together with schools of pelagic fish and unique macro. Imagine all of this, and then a Giant Manta Ray or Whale Shark glide pass!
We can offer you the option of a trip by either big boat or speedboat. Those of you who just want to get there, dive and get back should take the speedboat option. The speed boat means a shorter day as the journey time is only 1.5 hours each way. As we depart nice and early we are always one of the first at the dive site and there will be maximum 13 divers on board.
