A Giant Wreck, Anemone Covered Pinnacles & Two Beautiful Caves, That Is Why We Dive King Cruiser, Shark Point & Koh Doc Mai

If you have not been diving on the King Cruiser you are missing out on diving one of the most easily accessible and truly alive wrecks in Thailand and by far the largest wreck we have here. There is also no chance of missing the wreck as we have a mooring line attached to it allowing divers to descend easily even in strong currents and a great way to do your safety stops. The Cruiser is 86 Meters long and some days it’s hard to see it because the swarming snapper, barracuda and other schooling fish life. Massive Mangrove Snapper and Grouper hide out in the wreckage and Nuidbranch like Doriprismatica Atromarginata cover the wreck.

Beyond the King Cruiser we have Shark Point, 3 underwater pinnacles with a spectacular array of life and famed for Tiger Tail Sea Horses and Leopard Sharks, not to mention stingrays, bent stick pipe fish and every type of moray and scorpion fish you can think of. Still not sold, well don’t forget we also have Koh Doc Mai, a spectacular wall dive that also has two easily accessible caves, one large, one small, both with a few nice hidden secrets, remember to ask your guides.

There's plenty of good restaurants and bars on the pier road itself, so you can be happily quenching your thirst after a good days diving while the ot [...]

It's relatively cheap, can be done in one day, straight forward and really is beneficial to the diver. Excessive absorption of nitrogen into our body tissues is the factor that limits a divers time underwater. So by simply putting more oxygen into our scuba tank, therefor reducing the amount of nitrogen we in turn reduce the amount that our body absorbs. Which will extend our diving time at given depths. Got it? There is of course much more to learn about diving with Nitrox and that's why you should take the Read The Full Story
