Whaleshark on first dive of the Season at Hin Daeng & Hin Muang

During the Green Season, two of our local dive sites (Koh Haa and Hin Daeng/Muang) were closed, by the Marine Park, to enable them to recover and to preserve the wonderful coral and wildlife there. On 15th October 2015, the dive sites were reopened and yesterday (21st October 2015) they made their first trip to Hin Daeng & Hin Muang.

Hin Daeng and Hin Muang (Red Rock and Purple Rock) are named after the coral that covers them and are to the South of Koh Lanta. They are both deep sites and only suitable for experienced divers but are very beautiful and, if you are lucky, are visited by Whalesharks and Manta Rays.

So Scubafish Dive Centre staff were very excited to be on the first dive there and they were not disappointed, they saw a Whaleshark!

What a great start to the season, I hope the Whaleshark sticks around for a little bit longer!
