Andaman Sea Dive Sites - Hin Daeng

One of two rock formations located close to Hin Muang, approximately 25 kilometers southwest of Koh Rok. Hin Daeng (red rock) and Hin Muang (purple rock) offers everything a diver could want, from dramatic walls and big fish action, to lush tropical underwater gardens. Hin Daeng is breaking the surface while Hin Muang is submerged. These are impressive divesites; a series of pinnacles and walls with some of the best soft corals anywhere.

The shallows are completely carpeted with anemones. Plenty of big fish are attracted to these rocks: jacks, barracudas and big tunas can be seen at all times. This is one of the few Thai divesites where grey reefsharks can be seen. This area somewhat resembles Richelieu Rock and is also regularly visited by wandering whalesharks and mantas. An area not to be missed! Hin Daeng and Hin Muang offer some of the only (and best) wall diving in the Andaman Sea. When conditions are right, the pinnacles of Hin Daeng and Hin Muang may even be better than the Similan Islands!
