Koh Lanta Wreck – Kled Kaew Dimensions
Length: 47.2 meters. Beam: 7.7 meters Draft: 13 meters Weight: 382-ton Kled Kaew, Keow or Geow Wreck is one of the few amazing Koh Lanta wrecks. It was an ancient Royal Thailand Navy transport support vessel and went to a watery grave in 2014: it was purposely sunk. Several holes were cut through the hull to assist in the sinking and also to allow skilled divers to explore and penetrate the interior. The sinking, a joint action by the RTN and the Department of Marine & Coastal Resources, was presided over by Captain Nantapon Malarat, Deputy Chief of Staff of the Tab Lamu Naval Base in Phang Nga. Nudibranchs, Lionfish, Scorpionfish and Snappers fully cover the ship wreck, making this dive site a great opportunity for every underwater photographer. A large group of Yellow tailed Barracuda is cruising around creating a stunning view during good visibility days.
