Hin Muang is located near Hin Daeng and boasts the the highest vertical wall in Thai waters. This is one of the top 10 dive site in the world. This dive site got its name from the large amount of purple soft corals that completely cover the rocks and can be seen throughout the dive. The site itself is a long narrow ridge which rises from the ocean floor at a depth of approximately 65m/213ft and goes to its highest point of approximately 8m/26ft. It can be accessed by a permanent buoy line near the shallowest point. The diver travels along the walls and steep reefs that the site consists of, including the peaks providing cleaner stations where manta rays and whale sharks swim very close to be groomed by the smaller reef fishes.

When to go

Average water temperature is 28C/82F. Diving is possible from the 15th of October Until 15th of May (National Park)

What to see

A huge plethora of fish! With a plethora of marine life inhabiting the site, looking out into the blue also offers the chance of seeing trevallies, rainbow runners, barracudas, mackerel and tuna fish hunting in schools. Divers will see everything from amazing macro life to whale shark.

    Boat Trip to Hin Daeng / Hin Muang (2 Dives)

    Boat trip to Hin Daeng / Hin Muang. This product is for certified divers only. The dive sites Hin Daeng and Hin Muang are the deepest drop-offs in Thailand. They are world-class dive sites and provide some of the most stunning diving in the area. The greater depths and currents make these sites suitable for Advanced Open Water Divers or Open Water Divers who want to do a Deep Adventure Dive. Hin Daeng “Red Rock” and Hin Muang “Purple Rock” are named after the beautifull red and purple corals that cover the pinnacles. Located 70km south of Koh Lanta, they boast good visibility, unless the waters become extremely plankton rich. It is this plankton that attracts the larger marine life and there is a high chance of seeing Manta Rays and passing Whale Sharks throughout the season. Many Giant Morays can be seen amongst the cracks and crevices and large Leopard Sharks are often found lying on the sand on the 40 meter ridges. Our big boat LILA is going to Hin Muang and Hin Daeng every Friday.
