King Cruiser Wreck

The King Cruiser joined Phukets available dive sites in May 1997

Originally used as a ferry for transportation between Phuket and Phi Phi Islands.

After a miscalculation, the King Cruiser struck Anemone Reef which resulted in a large tear in her hull, slowly but surely she began to sink and finally came to rest approximately 1 mile to the east of Shark Point.

  • Car Ferry Wreck
  • Artificial Reef
  • Barracuda, Jacks, Tuna, Fusiliers
  • Mild to Strong Currents
  • 10 to 20 Meters Visibility
  • Supervised Beginners to Advanced Divers

Fortunately local authorities where quick to respond to her impending doom and all persons on board where rescued without any incidents, however it has provided us with a fascinating wreck dive. Over the years the marine life has slowly but surely made this new location their home, with large schools of big mouth mackerels cruising the outside, you can also find schools of five line snappers, yellow tail barracuda, fusiliers and seasonally big eye trevally.

With a loading deck that extends her length and width, the King Cruiser allows for a fascinating swim through her entire length, in the loading deck you can find banner fish, scorpion fish, puffers, and varieties of angel fish.

With a length of 82 meters and a width of 25 meters, the King Cruiser sits upright reaching a depth of 32 meters at the stern to 12 meters at the wheelhouse, making for an easy and enjoyable wreck dive.
