At Boonsung Wreck
We arrange local half-day trips by long-tail boat to the three wrecks Khao Lak has to offer.
One of the trip sites is the outstanding wreck "Boonsung".
Here you will find an old tin mining platform which sank in 1984 and rests at a depth of 20 meters. The boxing day Tsunami of 2004 separated the wreck into several parts, making the dive site bigger and even more attractive.
Over several years, it became colonized by thousands upon thousands of fish, glad to be lucky enough to have an artificial reef in a vast expanse of sand.
Around the wreck, which locals describe as “fish soup,” you will pass through clouds of snappers, fusiliers, batfish, and trevally as you look for the special things living within the wreck and in the surrounding sand.
Crocodile fish, stonefish, scorpionfish, lionfish, ornate ghost pipefish, a lot of moray eels in different sizes and much more reside with the kings of the site, the nudibranchs.
We start the trip about 8:45 am from Khao Lak and bring you by Taxi to Pakarang Beach where the long-tail boat is waiting for you. We need about 30 minutes to the dive sites and doing 2 dives with a lunch break during the surface interval. We will be back at the beach latest 2:00 pm and in Khao Lak 20 minutes later.
