Scuba Diving Pattaya, Thailand

Reader Reviews:

Dive Site: HTMS Kood

Location: Koh Sak

Description: World War II U.S. Landing Ship

Length: 56 metres (184 feet)

Depth: 12 (39 feet) conning tower - 32 metres (104 feet) bottom

Visibility: 5 - 8 metres (15 - 26 feet)

Rating: ***

Brand new shipwreck sunk off Koh Sak, about 30 minutes away from Pattaya. Sister ship to the Khram (shipwreck off koh Phai).

Still a little young for a shipwreck as sea life is slow to grow on it.

Some GREAT wreck penetrations - most notably the tower section and the bow sections.

Update June 2007

Nurse shark spotted on the shipwreck.. the site is improving as fish are starting to colonise it. Brilliant !!

Similar to the Kram with similar appalling current if you miss slack. Very poor visibility meant we swam the entire length of the wreck but thought we hadn't strayed any further astern than the midships conning tower! The second dive had better viz because the current had dropped but apart from seeing more in the way of fish the dive was ultimately disappointing. Some limited penetration but no long swim throughs. Nothing special. I would avoid Pattaya for diving if this is the best on offer as was reported to us beforehand.
