KING CRUISER is the best wreck dive in the area. The boat was a car ferry that ran from Phuket to Phi Phi when she sank on the 4th May 1997. The wreck is reached from a buoy line to the stern of the boat. The top of the wreck sits at 16 meters and drops at the deepest point to 32 meters. The wreck is 85 – 90 meters long, 30 meters wide and about 16 meters tall. The top of the wreck is covered in coral now. Above that huge schools of glass fish and snapper. Then barracuda and trevally feeding off of them. Again here the Whale shark can sometimes be a great last addition to the dive while doing your safety stop.
On the 4th of May 1997 the 85-meter passenger ferry ‘King Cruiser’ on a normal route to the Phi-Phi Islands made history by straying several miles off course and hitting the Anemone Reef, the only navigational hazard in several sea miles. If the Phuket dive scene had been previously lacking in anything it was a decent ship-wreck for divers to explore. This unplanned addition to Anemone Reef has become one of the most popular dive-sites around Phuket. King Cruiser wreck dive is located near an already popular dive-site but it is positioned almost perfectly at a depth between 14 and 30 meters depending on the tide. With its multiple collapsed decks and spacious swim throughs the King Cruiser wreck is providing sheltered living quarters for large numbers of fish and crabs. Over time has become an even better dive-site as it takes on a patina of age, and becomes encrusted with a variety of colorful soft corals.
which means shark rock in Thai gets its name from the common sighting of Leopard Shark found resting on the seabed. This is a pinnacle dive with a series of 5 pinnacles running north to south. All pinnacles are covered in lots of soft coral, large sea fans and home to big schools of colorful reef fish. There are tiger tail seahorses, ghost pipe fish, barracuda and an almost unlimited variety of life on the pinnacles. The depths here drop to 25 meters right up to the surface and during the months of November to May it’s always worth keeping one eye towards the surface as the whale shark is often missed as it cruises overhead. This is most of the instructors favorite dive sites and rarely leaves any divers disappointed.
This dive is a wall dive and perfect for drift and underwater photography. The wall itself is covered with soft corals gorgonian sea fans and barrel sponges with tons of interesting macro life such as nudibranchs, seahorses, ornate ghost pipe fish and frog fish. a couple of bamboo sharks can almost always be found sleeping under a ledge at 24 meters. This dive site is more suitable for advanced divers as the current can sometimes be challenging and visibility unpredictable. whale sharks can occasionally be spotted overhead swimming in the blue.
