Hin Daeng / Hin Muang

Sitting 130km south of Ao Nang / Railey these are two of Thailands' best dive sites. With visibility in excess of 30m, Hin Daeng features a 50m wall and drops off to over 60m. Fish that are normally seen individually or in schools here include the Red-Toothed Trigger Fish and Powder Blue Surgeon Fish. Batfish are frequent guests in the ‘swinning pool’, which is a great place for a safety stop.

Hin Muang is a submerged pinnacle which tops out at 12m and drops off to in excess of 70m. The fish life here can be overwhelming with clouds of fish including Tuna, Jacks, Travelly and all reef fish represented. This is your best chance to see Manta Rays, Whale Sharks, Silver Tip Reef Sharks, all with the purple background of anemones and soft coral. Strong currents and depth restrict these sites to more experienced divers.

Burma (The Mergui Archipeligo)

This archipeligo is comprised of over 800 islands, running north of the Burmese-Thai border. Closed by the Burmese government in the 1940's, and opened as recently as 1997, the coast is vastly under-explored, and uninhabited, with only Moken (Burmese sea gypsies), inhabiting fishing villages during the year's kinder months. Much of the archipeligo is comprised of rocky outcropings that barely break the surface. The larger islands feature elevated interiors rich in primary rainforset fringed by mangrove forest and sandy beaches.
