King Cruiser Wreck Fun Dives in Phuket

Dive to the sunken King Cruiser wreck in Phuket for every diver's ultimate dream dive! On this trip, you'll do two dives at the wreck, and one dive at either Anemone Reef or Shark Point. Each dive lasts about 45 minutes, giving you a full day of spectacular diving.

You'll be transferred to your dive sites in a fabulous 86 foot luxury yacht that has a sunbathing deck, a shaded lounge area for between dives, WiFi, 2 toilets and 4 showers, as well as super-easy convenient water entry spots. There is all-day tea/coffee, snacks, fresh fruits, soft drinks and drinking water, and you'll dig in to a light breakfast and a full veg/non-veg buffet lunch on deck.

IMPORTANT: To do these dives, you need to be at least a certified PADI Advanced Open Water Diver (AOWD).

NOTE: All prices in this package are subject to fluctuations based on international currency exchange rates at the time of booking.


In 1997, the King Cruiser passenger ferry hit the submerged rock of Anemone Reef and sank (without fatality, thankfully) and is now a prime dive site. You'll get to explore the upper decks and passenger deck that is now filled with fish and coral. The wreck is also a popular visiting spot for leopard sharks, and if you're lucky, you might even get to see a rare whale shark. Besides this, camouflaged scorpion fish, schools of lionfish, trevally, snappers and rabbit fish can also be spotted in its waters.

For your third dive you'll visit either Anemone Reef, known for its rich density of sea anemones; or Shark Point where you’ll find rich coral outcrops, as well as a small population of leopard sharks.
