Kled Keaw Wreck

 

The Kled Keaw Wreck is our newest dive site to the east of Koh Phi Phi Leh. Originally built for the Norwegian Royal Navy in 1948, it was later acquired by the Royal Thai Navy and the Coastal & Marine Resource department to create an artificial reef.

Sunk in 2014 Kled Keaw is an oasis in the middle of the ocean, teaming with marine life both big and small. Schools of pelagic fish gravitate towards the wreck in search of an easy meal. Smaller tropical fish find refuge in its many nooks and crannies, while macro species cover the structure. Sharks, Turtles and Rays have been encountered on occasion. The wreck is 47m long and 8m wide and sits at a maximum depth of 26m. The top of the wheel house is around 14m and below the wheel house there are two further decks to explore.
