King Cruiser Wreck King Cruiser was a car and passenger ferry servicing the Phuket to Phi Phi Island route that sank on 4th May 1997 after hitting a submerged rock known as Anemone Reef on its way to Phi Phi Island. Fortunately, no lives were lost during the incident. Having settled in an upright position at the sandy bottom, the wreck stays relatively close to Anemone Reef and Shark Point and is 25-27 km east of Chalong Bay with a northsouth orientation. The depth is around 32 mt at the sand bottom and about 14-15 mt on top. The wreck is 85 mt long by 25 mt wide, with four decks with large passages, and window holes divers can use to gain easy access to explore the spacious interior. However, some part of the wreck has noticeably deteriorated, and in mid-2003 the top deck at the stern collapsed into the mid-section, so the wreck is now considered unsafe for penetration. Divers can explore the passenger deck level at a depth of around 18-22 mt, while others may be more interested in checking out the remains of the wheel house at the top level. There is usually at least one buoy tied to the south side of the wreck.
