Get “Wrecked” in Phi Phi Island Thailand

12 Jun

Koh Phi Phi Island has since a bit more than a month a new Diving Attraction to offer. The HTMS Kletkaew has finally retired from the Royal Thai Navy and found her resting ground on Famous Koh Phi Phi Island Thailand.

Originally build in 1948 for the Norwegian Royal Navy, and after only serving 8 Years in Norway, on the 9th of April 1956  the former AKS 861  was sold, renamed and used as a Transport Support  vessel for the Royal Thai Navy. The Vessel is about 50 meters long, 79,7 wide and  had a weight of nearly 400 Tons.

She found her resting place on March 19th 2014 on Koh Phi Phi, near Phi Phi Ley at approximately 500 – 600 meters outside “Viking Cave at a dept between 20 and 25 meters, making that wreck perfect for Adventure Dives and PADI Specialty Programs.

We recommend  all Divers take  training such as PADI Deep Diver, Nitrox Diver, Wreck Diver while enjoying this fantastic new Dive Site.

For more information you can always contact your Local Dive Center or visit Padi.com
