About the Wreck
The HTMS Chang built in 1944 (formerly know as the USS Lincoln) was sunk as an artificial reef on the 22nd November 2012. It’s 100m in length and is the largest shipwreck for recreational divers in Thailand. The gun turrets at the stern of the ship are a must to see and there are lots of exploration areas. it’s a must for wreck junkies paradise because of the large cargo hold, 3 main decks and 7 sub decks. Full penetration is available on this wreck.
Off the side of the wreck, the marine life is awesome. There are over 40 inquisitive Batfish swimming in a shoal. Three generations of Barracudas circle around the deck and some large groupers are around too. It’s also possible to spot a Whale Shark on these trips.
