On the 4 May 1997 the car ferry King Cruiser sank 10 miles northwest of Phi-Phi Island. This 85 meter-long steel ferry had been on the same route seven days a week, 365 days a year for the past ten years. She remarkably managed to hit the only navigational hazard within 25 miles and created the perfect wreck dive. She sank on a lovely spring day with no wind, no waves and perfect visibility. No one died. Today the wreck is, in spite of extensive corrosion damage, an amazing dive site. It’s completely surrounded by big schools of fish. The damage has opened up some interesting places in the ship that were never accessible to divers before. In the periods of full moon the wreck is not diveable. Common fish species that inhabit this dive site: Barracuda, Tuna, Mackerels, Groupers, Batfish, Giant morays, Lionfish, Crocodile Needlefish, Trevally’s, turtles, Yellow fusiliers.
