Whale Shark / Manta Ray Diving in Krabi, Thailand.

The Andaman Sea is famous for mega fauna encounters with giant manta rays and whale sharks, we have made around 30 trips to the world famous Hin Daeng / Hin Muang dive sites between October 2013 and April 2014.

The sites are in the open ocean a distance of about 100 km from Ao Nang, and are located within 500 meters of each other. Here you can see everything that lives in Southeast Asia, all varieties of reef fauna; barracuda, trevally, large groupers, giant moray eels, stingrays, leopard sharks, beautiful corals and anemones.

And of course, what makes these sites famous all over the world are regular visits by whale sharks and manta rays. Manta rays come to the reefs to use the cleaning stations, and from November to April, you can usually see several of them circling around the reefs at shallow depths!

This season these sites have been chock full of mantas, and quite often whale sharks too.  We are hoping for another successful season with manta rays and whale sharks for 2014/2015, and we hope that you are on one of these special trips to see these magnificent creatures with us.
