King Cruiser Wreck, Andaman Sea Scuba Diving

Visibility: 10 - 25 m
Depth: 3 - 30 m

King Cruiser Ferry
On May 4th, 1997, the 70 meters steel hulled King Cruiser ferry collided with a reef on its way from Phuket to the Phi Phi Islands. She took 2.5 hours to sink, and in that time, all 600 passengers were brought to safety. That huge catamaran rests within the zone of Shark Point Marine Sanctuary in about 30 meters of water on a sandy bottom.

The wreck sits upright in thirty metres of sand and remains in one piece although the foreword upper deck has collapsed. The simplest and safest point of entry is through the vessels stern where divers can explore the once active car decks. This particular part of the structure is reached after a descent averaging only ten metres. Machinery still sits on the deck. Inside the car deck are a couple of vehicle tyres and an engine trolley. The interior darkens as you continue through and up one of the stairways on either side ; patches of chrome peek through the now barnacle covered handrail. Both of these lead through open doors and out to walkways.

Divers can swim through most of the wreck. For experienced divers only.
