Whalesharks at Koh Haa!

 Koh Lanta Marine Park has been open for only 2 days and we have had our first sighting of a Whaleshark! Koh Lanta Diving Centre took their first trip to Koh Haa and before they had even returned to the island, we all knew they had seen one!

Whalesharks are large, but gentle creatures and any SCUBA diver will tell you it is a real honour to meet your first one. We have Whalesharks over the year around Koh Lanta, but they are a little unpredictable and you have to have a little luck to see one.
Koh Haa, our most popular dive location from Koh Lanta
 Koh Lanta is an excellent location for new and experienced SCUBA divers. Koh Haa has swimming pool like conditions and shallow waters, so it is easy for those diving for the first time, but it also has caverns, caves and swimthroughs for the more experienced. Also close by we have the famous Hin Daeng & Hin Muang (Red Rock & Purple Rock), named because of the colours of the coral on the reefs, a stunning dive, with deep waters and a good chance of the bigger animals (Whalesharks and Manta Rays). Koh Phi Phi is also closeby and most guides love the Bida Islands (part of the Koh Phi Phi islands) for the plethora of fish and aquatic life.
Ko Lanta Diving Center Located in the main town of Saladan
Koh Lanta also has excellent dive schools who offer small group courses and dive teams. In general dive classes/teams have 4 or less people in, meaning you will receive a lot of individual attention and your dives will be mainly diving, not watching others complete skills.

If you need any help or advice regarding Diving on Lanta or anywhere, Mellisa (one of our owners) is a dive instructor, has dived all over the world and used to own a dive centre on the island, so please feel free to email us for advice
