Dive Sites Koh Lanta
Lanta Diver is located on Koh Lanta which mean we are fortunate enough to have easy access to the premium diving and snorkeling sites of Thailand. We operate Dive- and snorkel trips to several fantastic Dive sites Koh Lanta on daily basis. The Dive sites are situated in the south of the Andaman sea and each has its own unique ecosystem with beautiful corals and varied marine life.
We offer Divers and Snorkelers to either go with one of Lanta Diver’s big boats or with our Speedboat. The Speedboat takes you to the Dive sites Koh Lanta faster, and with one of the big boats the journey is a little bit more comfortable and calmer.
Briefly about Dive sites Koh Lanta
Hin Daeng / Hin Muang or Red rock / Purple rock is probably the most famous dive site in Thailand and the most spectacular of the Dive sites Koh Lanta. Hin Daeng/Hin Muang is accessible from Koh Lanta as a day trip. 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 have 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 glides past!
Koh Ha or Five Islands is simply stunning in every way and by far our most popular diving- and snorkeling site. It is famous for the “Cathedral” where divers can explore the mysterious two large caverns formed at one of the islands. There are also stunning coral walls, a beautiful lagoon for nice easy diving, schooling fish, lots of macro and, if you look carefully, we often find some quite unusual aquatic life. The lagoon at Koh Ha also provides a nice protected area for snorkeling and is suitable for all levels and ages. Koh Ha is one of our favourite Dive sites Koh Lanta.
Koh Bida Nok/Nai/Hin Bida or The “Bida Islands” are located in the Phi Phi National Marine Park which is easily accessible from Koh Lanta. The Bida’s offer an exciting diving experience with schools of pelagics surrounding the reefs, which are often seen hunting the smaller glassfish. This Dive Site Koh Lanta is also famous for spotting sharks so don’t be surprised if a Black Tip darts past you, or you stumble upon a sleeping Leopard Shark during your dive.
Kled Keaw Wreck / Hin Klai. The Kled Keaw Wreck was originally built for the Norwegian Royal Navy in 1948. Sunk in 2014 Kled Keaw is an oasis in the middle of the ocean, teaming with marine life both big and small. Smaller tropical fish find refuge in its many nooks and crannies, while macro species cover the structure. Sharks, Turtles and Rays have been encountered on occasion at this Dive site Koh Lanta. The wreck is 47 m long and 8 m wide and sits at a maximum depth of 26 m.
Koh Waen / Train Wreck is our newest Dive site Koh Lanta for Lanta Diver. The train is situated outside the small uninhabited island of Koh Waen south of Koh Lanta which is part of the “four islands”. Marine life consists of schools of fish like Snapper and Barracuda.
