Details:

Built in Japan 30 years ago, King Cruiser was a comfortable catamaran-hull passenger-cruiser with 4 decks until she sank on the 4th May 1997 by straying several miles off course and hitting the Anemone Reef in near perfect weather conditions. With a huge hole ripped in her hull the ship went down in less than an hour. The absolutely ideal weather conditions at the time of the accident no doubt greatly aided the rescue efforts and fortunately the several hundred passengers and crew on board at the time all managed to escape to safety. An easy pe, King Cruiser has large openings that allow easy access to the spacious interior. With its multiple decks and spacious open areas the King Cruiser wreck is providing sheltered living quarters for large numbers of fish and crabs. The propellers (deepest point) rest 30 meters deep with the most interesting areas around the passenger decks between 10 and 20 meters.

Location 2: Anemone Reef


Anemone Reef - Phuket Day Trip Dive Site
•    Distance: 29 km (16 Miles) (from Phuket)
•    Boat Trip: 1,5 Hour
•    Depth: 5-24 Meters (20-80 ft)
•    Visibility: Fair to excellent
•    Current: Fair to moderate
•    Type of Dive: Site is complete submerged, start about 5m./ Soft Coral
Ideal for: Nitrox, Multi Level, UW Photography, Naturalist, Deep Diver, AWARE Fish Identification, Peak Performance Buoyancy, Boat  
Details:
Anemone Reef is a unique dive-site, it soars 30 meters up from the seafloor to just beneath the surface then abruptly ends and drops back to a bottom of sand and oyster shells.
This barely submerged reef is located less than a mile north of Shark Point. The Thai name for this site is Hin Jom (underwater rock). Although not as colorful as Shark Point this site is famous for its huge fields of sea anemones covering every conceivable surface and swings and sways with the current creating an illusion of it being a giant living rock.
The profusion of sea anemones and the nutrient-rich water are a magnet to a constant parade of reef fish seeking food and shelter. Enormous shoals of tropical fish, snappers, groupers, and colorful clown fish, along with larger game-fish like jack and barracuda, and the occasional leopard shark can be seen passing by. Anemone Reef is also famous as a site for to viewing lionfish sometimes encountered in groups of dozens or more at a time.

Location 3: Shark Point


Shark Point - Phuket Day Trip Dive Site
•    Distance: 29 km (16 Miles) (from Phuket)
•    Boat Trip: 1,5 Hour
•    Depth: 6-24 Meters (20-80 ft)
•    Visibility: Fair to excellent
•    Currents: moderate
•    Type of Dive: Soft Coral/ 3 main Pinnacles
Ideal for: Nitrox, Multi Level, UW Photography, Naturalist, Deep Diver, AWARE Fish Identification, Peak Performance Buoyancy, Boat, Drift  
Details:
Shark Point is made up of principally three submerged mounts/pinnacles. The main pinnacles run from north to south, with the northern most breaking the surface by a couple of meter, this pinnacle has a northern shipping cardinal to warn vessels of the underwater obstruction.
The marine life on this site is abundant, divers are virtually guaranteed to swim amongst enormous schools of Great Barracuda, Five-lined Snappers, Gold-striped Fusiliers and the occasional Leopard Shark resting quietly on the seabed (which is why the site is called Shark Point). The currents can be brisk, which is why you can find not just hard corals like stag horn or lettuce, but also soft corals on this site like gorgonian sea fans. Shark Point has always something of interest to see, which is why it is one of the most popular day trip dive sites to visit from Phuket Island.
