2 out of the Top 3 Dive Sites in Thailand

By Speedboat we drove to Hin Daeng and Hin Muang, which are recognised together with Richelieu Rock (Similian Islands) to be the Top 3 Dive Sites in Thailand.
1. Dive: Hin Daeng. The Visibility was great, 30+m, unfortunately we didn't see any of the Big Stuff (Manta Rays and Whale Sharks), it was nevertheless a beautiful Dive. We saw lots of big Mooray Eels, a school of Chevron Barracudas, lots of Indian Triggerfishes, a couple of Titan Triggerfishes, a Spotfin Lionfish and a Short-Nose Unicornfish.
2. Dive: Hin Muang. Again beautiful Visibility. We saw dozens of tiny Red-Tooth Triggerfishes (~3cm long), a Great Barracuda, a Titan Triggerfish who was circling a Yellow-Margin Triggerfish and again lots of Mooray Eel.
The return trip was very wet, the current had picked up a little bit and we were soaked by the time we reached the harbor.
