King Cruiser Cluster

King Cruiser Cluster

The Trip Of Choice For Advanced Scuba Diving In Phuket

The dive sites around the King Cruiser Wreck are some of the richest and diverse in the whole of Thailand. Fed by the waters of Phang Nha Bay, the nutrient rich currents feed stunning soft corals and huge schools of fish. The diving can be a little tricky at these exposed sites but the rewards can be huge. Whale shark sightings in this area have been increasing every year.

The Most Diverse Scuba Diving In Phuket Can Be Found In Phang Nga Bay. Reefs, Wreck And Walls That Are Teeming With Life Of A Myriad Different Species

The rich waters of Phang Nga bay hide lots of small islands and is a place you'll probably visit during your Phuket holiday on a sightseeing tour. What you won't see on these tours is the amazingly diverse marine life beneath the waves. Lots of nutrients get washed down from the bay making this area particularly wealthy in marine life. Local Dive Thailand run trips to these hidden gems every Monday, Tuesday and Friday. Browse through our dive site descriptions and contact us to arrange a great day out.

leopard shark at shark point

Shark Point Phuket

For many divers visiting Phuket, Shark Point is at the top of the list. These stunning pinnacles half way between Phuket and Phi Phi attract tons of life from the featureless areas surrounding it. It's named after the leopard sharks that like to rest on the sandy bottom in the day time. They're not so common as they used to be but regular enough visitors for the dive site to frequently live up to it's name. Even without the sharks it c [...]

huge schools of fish on the king cruiser wreck in phuket

The King Cruiser Wreck Dive

The King Cruiser Wreck's unplanned underwater life began in May 1997. The adventurous captain of the King Cruiser car ferry strayed miles off course on his way to Phi Phi from Phuket.
