Wow what a start to the Diving Season!

Koh Haa (5 Islands)
Koh Lanta Marine Park officially opened on the 15th October. The Marine Park covers many islands great for snorkelling and diving around Koh Lanta (Koh Rok, Koh Haa, Koh Muk and Hin Daeng/Muang (Red/Purple Rock).
Whalesharks, the gentle giants of the sea!
I was lucky enough to be invited to join the clean up at Koh Haa, the day before it opened and was so pleased to see that there was very little rubbish (unlike Koh Rok which required the Marine Park to return the next day to carry all the rubbish off the island).
You can even see snorkel with a whaleshark
On the 16th October, the first Whaleshark was seen as Koh Haa. In the 2 weeks following, there have been numerous sightings of both Whalesharks and Manta Rays at Koh Haa and Hin Daeng/Muang.

Inside one of the caves of Koh Haa
Koh Haa is an excellent site for both snorkellers and divers of every level, with swimming pool-like conditions and caverns, caves and swimthroughs for the more experienced. Indeed it is also a popular location for freediving too, with depths up to 40 metres.
Manta Ray at Hin Daeng
Hin Daeng/Muang are for experienced Scuba divers only, but is a stunning location to see Manta Rays swimming between the rocks.

 If you are wanting to Scuba dive or snorkel whilst you are in Koh Lanta, we can help advise with the best trip for you.
