The location

For the advanced diver, Koh Tao's premier wreck dive is an ex Thai Navy boat. HTMS Sattakut was kindly donated to Koh Tao by the Royal Thai Navy and The Department of Marine and Coastal Resources. It had a controlled sinking in June 2011, after a thorough clean of toxins and hazardous materials by the navy. It now lies in the sand, just 50m south of the dive site Hin Pee Wee; the bow is at a depth of 26 meters and the stern deeper at 31 meters. It is now home to an abundance of marine life: barracudas, groupers, wrasses, snappers, moray eels, grey reef sharks and putter fish live amongst the wreck. The vessel itself is 49 meters long and 7 metres wide and is often host to the PADI wreck diver courses.
