King Cruiser WreckUnderwater Video Guide to the King Cruiser Wreck with Scubafish.

The King Cruiser was originally a car ferry in Japan before being used to transport passengers between Phuket and Ko Phi Phi. On May 4th, 1997, the ferry hit the dive site Anemone Reef and quickly sank. All the passengers were rescued by nearby dive and fishing boats and there were no casualties.

The steel wreck has now evolved into a fantastic natural reef and the popular dive site is home to a huge variety of marine life, who seek shelter within it.

The King Cruiser Wreck is a fascinating dive site at a perfect depth for diving.

Lying in sand at 30 metres and rising to around 10 metres, this site acts as an artificial reef and is home to huge numbers of fish.

You can see almost anything, from large schools of snapper, baitfish & fusliers, to pelagic hunters, a large resident turtle & numerous smaller macro delights such as honeycomb morays, lionfish & nudibranchs.

Add this to the eerie & fascinating experience of diving on a large shipwreck and you have a dive to enjoy time & time again.
