Kled Geaw Wreck
4100 BAHT – 3 dive day trip
On March 19th, 2014 Island Divers were delighted to learn the Royal Thai Navy had sunk a new wreck only minutes from our dive school.
The Kled Gaew ( pronounced Get Gayo ) was originally built in Norway and later commissioned by the Royal Thai Navy in 1956.
She sits almost upright with an approximate 20 degree list to the starboard side. With her bow pointing north, the wreck sits in 27 metres of water some 800 metres off the east coast of Phi Leh Island.
Most of the wreck can be dived at 22 metres, which has enabled many open water divers to enjoy dives there. The wreck was well prepared and there are many large holes cut that allow divers to dive through and not just around it.
Island Divers have dived the wreck almost every day since it was gifted to us. The growth and arrival of marine life has taken place at a speed that surprised us all. Many species, such as lion fish, snapper, batfish now have a home and it has also become a safe haven for juvenile barracuda and a multitude of critters such as nudibranchs and crabs.
All in all, the Kled Gaew is an excellent wreck dive for divers of all levels – everyone who has dived her comes up all smiles and gushing about what a great dive it is.
