MV Sea Chart

MV Sea Chart 1 was en route from Burma to Vietnam with 1,200 wooden logs on board when it faced rough weather conditions off Khao Lak in August 2009 and sank as a result. The 84-meter-long and 12-meter-wide wreck now rests on its starboard side at a depth of 40 meters. The wreck still has those logs visible and it has gathered a lot of marine life around it.

Premchai wreck

Premchai is also an old tin mining vessel that was intentionally sunk as a dive site in 2001. The wreck is not as full of life as the Boonsung wreck, but year after year more marine dwellers have found a home here. The wreck is located close to the coast of Tablamu so visibility is greatly affected by the coastal tides. On a good day, the visibility here can be 10 meters, so the wreck is primarily a good macro dives. Here you can see a lot of different small macro critters like crabs, shrimps and nudibranchs.
