There are several Phuket wreck diving options for the Phuket scuba diving community. The biggest wreck diving trip in Thailand for recreational divers is the King Cruiser Wreck. She sank in 1997 after running into Anemone Reef while taking tourists to Phi Phi from Phuket. There were no casualties. Now the King Cruiser acts as a magnet for lots of marine life. She is blanketed with large shoals of fish, and festooned with scorpion fish and hovering lionfish waiting for their next meal. She lays at a depth or around thirty -two meters, and the top of the wreck is now at around 15 meters. She is only really suitable for divers holding the advanced certificate or better due to her depth, and the occasional strong currents. She is an ideal choice for divers looking to take their PADI advanced course with Super Divers.

*Please note that the King Cruiser trip is only available to divers holding the PADI advanced certificate (Or equivalent), or to open water certified divers with more than 20 logged dives and experience of diving deeper than 18 metres.

The other two sites on this trip are also excellent, so there are three dives in total. Shark Point, on its day, is a five star dive site. When the visibility is good it's amazing, covered with blue and purple soft corals, clouds of glassfish dance and scatter to avoid incoming trevally hunting in packs. Leopard sharks can be found sleeping in sandy areas, and seahorses are common here. Koh Doc Mai is another nice dive. It offers sheer walls covered with corals and moray eels, while at depth caves penetrate deep into the limestone. Either Shark Point or Koh Doc Mai could be changed for Anemone Reef depending on conditions on the day. It's a fantastic dive site when the visibility is good and the currents are slack.

Because we like to offer choice and flexibility, we use three different dive boats enabling us to offer the King Cruiser wreck trip three days per week. The boats we use are all well maintained, safe, and comfortable, and the food is tasty and freshly cooked by the onboard chefs. Every certified diver booking two or more day trips with us receives a free Super Divers t-shirt, exclusively available to our guests only.
