Liveaboard Diving Similan Surin Richelieu Rock, Phuket Phi Phi Hin Daeng

The Hin Daeng/Hin Muang

Hin Daeng is located about 25km South of the Phi Phi Islands and is easily found protruding about three meters above the surface. The Southern side descends-straight down-to over 60m forming the most radical vertical drop in Thailand's seas and Mantas are frequent visitors. The wall is dotted with growths of soft corals and sea fans inhabited by many types of eels, sea horses, shrimp and pipe fish.
On the Eastern side where the slope is more gentle, two long ridges descend into the blueness and if the currents are favorable it is possible to swim along these ridges down to 40m or more. Here the red soft coral that the Island is named after become more lush and tall with huge schools of jacks sweeping past the ridge, surrounding the diver with a shimmering wall of silver. Barracudas and needle fish stalk their prey through the clear water between the three large rocks that form the surface view of Hin Daeng.

Hin Muang is located about 300m from Hin Daeng and lies completely submerged about 3m below the surface. The name comes from the thick purple soft corals that cover the rock that is approximately 200m long and about 20m wide. Shaped like an immense loaf of bread with steep vertical sides and a rounded top the walls are decorated with large of red, white and orange sea fans.
Well known for the consistent sightings of Mantas, Whale Sharks and the rare Gray Reef Sharks. These two pinnacles are world class and can be visited as part of a Phi Phi liveaboard or as a longer combination trip including the Similan Islands.
