The Manta Ray has the largest brain to body ratio of all sharks and rays on Earth. They can grow to over 7.5m in length and weigh as much as 2,000 kgs. Manta rays live to around 20 years old and are very close relative of the shark. Ironically, sharks as well as whales are their main predators. They are also closely related to the stingray but they don’t have a stinger.
World-famous dive site Hin Muang, lies just a few hundred metres to the west of Hin Daeng out in the Andaman Sea. This sea mount is entirely underwater with the reef starting at about 12 metres and plummeting down to a dizzying 70 metres.
The underwater seamount of Hin Daeng extends out in all directions to a depth of more than 50 metres and is home to a huge variety of larger marine life. You’ll bear witness to many awe-inspiring sites and aquatic variety in this underwater video at Hin Daeng.
Hin Daeng is home to a resident school of Batfish which greet divers on their descent, schools of huge Barracuda, and constant show of pelagic action to keep divers enthralled.
Enjoy great diving with fantastic underwater photography opportunities at Ko Haa Lagoon.
Cruising into the picture perfect lagoon of Ko Haa is a treat for novice and experienced divers alike with its white sandy beach, stunning karst islands & crystal clear waters.
The lagoon is home to fabulous reefscapes, a beautiful large table coral covered in nervous humbug fish and many colourful reef fish such as Porkie, the resident & very curious Porcupine Pufferfish, Clownfish (aka Nemo), Lionfish, Scorpionfish, Snapper, Barracuda & even Turtles.
The dive site is home to ‘The Chimney’, an eerie underwater tunnel starting at 17 metres and rising all the way to 6 metres, where a school of sweepers glint in the piercing rays of the sun.
Explore the arm that branches off the main chimney to the east, bringing you out into a beautiful shallow chamber with several large exits. Following the light through the tunnel either up or down the chimney is an experience not to be missed and can provide great silhouette opportunities.
