PATTAYA – THE WRECK DIVING CAPITAL OF THAILAND


The visibility around Pattaya may not be as stunning as in other parts of Thailand but this dive region scores high in a number of other ways:

It is accessible for day dive trips out of Bangkok. It is a dive career training hub. But mostly, it offers the widest range of exciting wrecks in one area. Historic wrecks like the Suddhadib (Hardeep) or the Bremen as well as purpose sunk Navy ships like the Khram, the Kut or the Mattaphon all add to the exclusive flair only wrecks can offer.

SUDDHADIB (HARDEEP) 3D WRECK MODEL

This accurate scale 3D computer model is the result of years of study of the wreck, documentation and creation on the computer. With no construction plans at hand, the wreck was measured out underwater bit by bit. Data collected that way was used to create 2D deck plans and later on used for the modelling of the wreck in 3D software.

Experience the wreck in its full view that way you would never be able to during a dive!
