The King Cruiser wreck is an old car ferry used for ferrying tourists back and forth from Phi Phi and Phuket, it is 85m long and has a width of 25m and is laying up right on its twin hulls on the sand at 32m. The wreck has deteriorated a lot over the years but the time spent down there has attracted a lot of marine life. You can dive this wreck at open water or advanced open water levels.

Conditions can vary on the wreck from one day to the next from 25m visibility and no current to strong current and low vis as this site is open to mild to strong currents and varied visibility most of the year round, even so no matter what the conditions an amazing dive for an abundance in marine life.
