Golden Horseshoe Expedition: Premchai Wreck

The tin dredging shipwreck off the coast of Khao Lak

Khao Lak, Thailand – Big Blue Tech explored the shipwreck called Premchai which was a tin mining vessel which sank in 21m during a storm in August of 2001. Although this wreck doesn’t pose much difficulty in terms of technical diving it’s still a great wreck to practice penetration and general conduct in and around a shipwreck. The abundance of marine life was astounding and in many situations the fish had to be scared away to take a picture of the wreck.

Although this would be the only time this wreck would be explored it was a great second dive of the day with an alternative shallow dive.

Additionally some website have reported this shipwreck being intact which might of been the case before the Tsunami but now the wreck is very much broken up and upside down. Still a great dive!
