|| HTMS Khram Wreck
||300m off the southeast apex of Koh Phai
||Average 24m / Maximum 30m
This 90m LSM-1 Class landing ship was sunk on the 1st February 2003. It has been cleared of all explosives and ammunition; there is also plenty of natural light penetrating the structure.
The bridge of this upright wreck is reached in a depth of 15m and affords an unchallenging entry. The port and starboard sides provide interesting passageways in which to explore. Although the engines have been removed the dials, gauges and pipes all remain in the engine room.
Watching out for the Reef: Coral Conservation Guide for Divers
• Avoid touching live corals. You can kill them with your bare hands.
• Keep your gauge and octopus hoses close to yourself and prevent them damaging the reef.
• Secure your weight belt. Dropping of the weights can destroy the reef.
• Refrain from chasing or touching animals, especially manta rays and whale sharks.
•Maintain a comfortable distant and enjoy
Many divers unintentionally destroy corals whilst diving.
Here are a few guidelines on how to avoid doing so.
• Use the correct amount of weight to aid in your buoyancy.
• Control your fins; keep them away from the reefs and avoid kicking sand onto the corals.
• Do not pick up organic objects (dead or alive) from the sea. Likewise, please do not buy shells or other decorative products made from sea animals.
• Do not stand or rest on the stone-like corals. After all, they are living animals.
