Hin Daeng & Hin Muang
Two outstanding Dive Sites in South Thailand close to Phi Phi Island

Hin Daeng and Hin Muang are fascinating and really dramatic dive sites. Arguably the greatest two sites in Thai waters they are comparable to the best diving spots in the world!

Hin Daeng and Hin Muang are located only app. 55 km (180 degrees) South of Phi Phi Island. These reefs offer the deepest drop-off and steepest wall in the kingdom. As both reefs are situated in open sea, making the the only feeding grounds of the area, there is an unimaginable lot of marine life. The nearest island is Ko Rock Nock, about 25 km away.

Hin Daeng is a large underwater reef surging up from a depth of 50 m, breaking the surface. Only a very small peak hovers above the water. On its northern side the reef drops in a relatively gentle slope. Yet the southern side has a drop-off down to more than 50 meters. Hin Daeng's average depth is 25 meters, reaching 35 meters at the max. 

Hin Muang translates to "Purple Rock". The reason for this name are the many wonderful soft corals - pink and purple sea anemones - that completely cover the highest point of this reef. Hin Muang is located only some hundred meters from Hin Daeng and rises from a depth of more than 70 meters. It comes 9 meters close to the surface and features the deepest drop-off in Thai waters. 

\Facts about dive:
Rated together with Hin Muang as the best dive sites in Thailand 

Access to the dive:
60 min. by speed boat

Experience grade: 
Everyone

Average visibility :

Average water temperature :

King Cruiser Wreck

Built in Japan 30 years ago, King Cruiser was a comfortable catamaran-hull passenger-cruiser with 4 decks until she sank on the 4th May 1997 in near perfect weather conditions. An easy dive, King Cruiser has large openings that allow easy access to the spacious interior. The propellers (deepest point) rest 30 metres deep with the most interesting areas around the passenger decks between 10 and 20 metres.
Hin Pae is a relatively shallow dive site - 10 to 15 metres deep. Its shallow depth offers excellent snorkeling. Hin Pae is sometimes called Baby Shark Point, because even snorkellers have the opportunity to see different types of sharks. The main topography includes boulder and brain corals, with many holes and tunnels for moray eels to pass through. Soft and hard coral provide shelter for a rich variety of coral fish. Crabs, lobsters, angelfish, groupers, snappers and surgeonfish are also residents of this area.
