Experience world-class diving at these two world-class dive sites which offer exotic and profound diving.

At Hin Muang (Purple Rock), you’ll notice straight away that there is no evidence of the reef below from the surface, other than the buoy line. Follow the line down and you will find everything seems to be a little bit larger here with impressive Giant Moray Eels that can often be witnessed hunting and large schools of giant travelly, barracuda and rainbow runners providing an impressive backdrop. Don’t forget the look in the smallest cracks for an impressive variety of small crustaceans and other marine life.

These two world-class dive sites offer fantastic diving with spectacular pelagic schooling fish displays and are also famous for spotting larger marine life such as Manta Rays and Whale Sharks.

Hin Daeng had the highest number of Whale Shark sightings last year of all Thailand's Dive Sites.

Note: Due to the greater depths and currents, these sites can be extremely challenging and are only suitable for Advanced Divers with a minimum of 20 dives who have dived recently.

Kled Gaeow Wreck (new dive site)
Divers:  Advanced / Experienced Only

Dive the recently-sunk Kled Gaeow Wreck, a retired Gunship that was originally launched in 1948 as the RNoMS Norfest (Norway) in 1948. It was bought and commissioned into the Royal Thai Navy and renamed Kled Gaeow in 1956. It has now found its final resting place by being purposely sunk just off Phi Phi Ley on the 19th March 2014. The 50m steel-hulled vessel lies at a depth of 26m, with the top of the tower at approximately 14m.  The Kled Geaow’s bow faces due North with a 20 degree starboard (Eastern) tilt.

The Wreck has been prepared to allow for safe penetration and a number of entries with rope guides have been created. At the bow you can find the cooler room that was used to keep produce fresh. Follow the large guide rope from the back of the cooler room leading you out towards the main storage area in the hull and up and through the tower. At the back of the hull, where the engine used to be, there is a small (square) porthole, which is just big enough to fit a diver with tank on and leads into a largish compartment. As you enter this compartment, turn right and follow the staircase on your right, which leads back up into the tower. At the bow of the wreck there is another compartment where the anchor and chains would have been kept. This compartment has a roof hatch entry and also a door to exit. Attached is a line from the tower to assist in safety stops and this is buoyed with an 8" buoy at around 3 meters from the surface.

Note: Due to the greater depths, currents and often limited visibility, this site can be quite challenging and is only suitable for Advanced Divers with a minimum of 20 dives who have dived recently.

The King Cruiser Wreck, Shark Point and Anemone Reef
Divers: Advanced / Experienced Only

Dive the famous King Cruiser Wreck, an 85 meter long passenger catamaran ferry that lies upright in 32 meters of water. This eerie shipwreck and huge artificial reef has evolved into a fantastic natural reef and attracts enormous numbers of fish.  It is also home to a large variety of other marine life, as well, and can attract giant schools of travelly, snappers and other schooling fish seeking shelter within its vast hull. Big open passage ways, the car deck and bridge area make for easy exploration. Take care, though, as surfaces have become encrusted with coral and barnacles and are extremely sensitive and sharp. On the upper levels you'll spot lionfish and big schools of fusiliers and around the hull you may see barracuda and jacks patrolling. The overall integrity of many support structures have been compromised due to degradation over time, so not all entry points may be safe. condition compromised integrity support structures

Nearby Shark Point and Anemone Reef dive sites have some of the most colourful and spectacular soft corals in the area.

Note: Due to the greater depths, currents and often limited visibility, in addition to potentially unsafe structures mean these sites can be fairly challenging and are only suitable for Advanced Divers with a minimum of 20 dives who have dived recently.
