Boonsung Wreck – Khao lak
Diving with Pirate Divers on our Longtail
The Boonsung also known as the Bangsak wreck, in my opinion is the best of all the local dives sites here in Khao Lak. The Boonsung wreck has the benefit of catering for all levels of diving experience from open water divers to advanced divers. The maximum depth is twenty meters. All divers can enjoy the beauty of this dive site, without having to pay extra on marine park fees.
This tin dragger sank in 1985 because of a burst pipe in the toilets. Later the Thai navy were called in to bomb this trawler because it became a safety hazard to the local fishing vessels. Due to it’s close proximity to the surface of the water. Fishermen were constantly hitting the surface of the Boongsung with of their boats.
The Boonsung Wreck before it sank!
When the Tsunami happened in 2004. It tore the Structure in to many pieces. Making it a much more interesting dive site. Each section of Boongsung Wreck hold something different. lionfish corner, can have a host of lionfish. The main body of the Boonsung Wreck has a huge amount of scorpion fish inhabiting that area. It’s the huge amount of fish that you see. That makes this dive site one not to be missed,
For any diver wishing to go diving and short on time. This is the perfect dive site because it’s so close to Khao lak.
