The Hardeep Wreck,built in 1918 in Hong Kong for the Siam Steamship Company and called the Suddhadib, after King Rama V’s favorite daughter. Cargo and Passenger carrier around South East Asia. The Thai Government seized it in 1940 and carried cargo in WW2.

It was at anchor and attacked by B24 Liberator Bombers on 1st June 1945. Using 1000 lbs bombs, dropped at low level, some of them still lay undisturbed and unexploded on the sea bed. The Hardeep Wreck now  lays on it’s starboard side at about 26m. After so many years, the entire ship is covered with marine growth including hard and soft corals. It is possible to penetrate from one end of the wreck to another.

Marine life around the wreck includes a resident turtle, blue spotted rays and an elusive Eagle Ray. There’s lots more and plenty of Nudibranch’s species in all shapes and sizes cover the wreck. Bring along your camera, you never know what you will see.

3,000 baht per person including equipment or 2,500 baht if you have your own.

Diving packages can be used on the day and we are running a special on Nitrox at 200 Baht/tank.
