MV Giamani liveaboard from Phuket
Many divers consider Hin Daeng and Hin Muang to be on a par with Richelieu Rock as the best diving in Thailand.
These dive sites are too far to reach by day trip from Phuket but there are a couple of liveaboards departing from Phuket:
- 2 days 2 nights Hin Daeng, Hin Muang Koh Haa and Phi Phi – Giamani liveaboard departs most Friday evenings from Chalong pier Phuket.
- 5 days 5 nights Hin Daeng, Hin Muang, Koh haa, Phi Phi, Similan Islands, Koh Bon, Koh Tachai and Richelieu Rock – MV Gentle Giant
Why dive Hin Daeng? Big fish, especially manta rays, are attracted to these submerged pinnacles like magnets, there is nothing else for miles around.
If you’ve already done a Similan Islands liveaboard and fancy some different dive sites then Hin Daeng/Muang is for you. Or if you want a loger trip than the standard 4 day 4 night Similan/Richelieu itinerary, then consider tacking on a couple of days in the south.
Hin Daeng diving season. The Hin Daeng and Hin Muang diving season is from November to April.
