Wreck diving in Pattaya completed

Today we completed the Wreck diving in Pattaya.

Yesterday we dived the HTMS Koot, a sister ship of the HTMS Khram and today we dived the Hardeep, a World War II wreck, located near the Thai Naval harbour of Sattahip.



It's a nice wreck to dive but you need to check the tidal charts since there can be some strong currents.
Steve completed his Wreck diving specialty today, congratulations!
Last night Marcus and me went on a night dive in order to complete his Instructor level Specialty rating for the specialty.
My next post will hopefully contain some pix of the wrecks. Stay tuned!

Hi Camille,

The Wreck Specialty course was great! I've dived the Hardeep several times already, so enables me to see things from a different viewpoint. I plan on going back to Pattaya in about two weeks and hope to see the inside of the HTMS Koot. This of course will be more of challenge, but that is what makes this so much fun for me.

It was really good you were able to make it up to these parts.

Hi Steve,

It was fun indeed, I enjoyed the dives a lot as well. I envy you being back there in two weeks again! Enjoy!

Wreck diving is one of the few specialties I don't have. Something to do with the fact that the only known wreck here is a WWII destroyer down at 35-50m!

Hi Dave,

It's a good Specialty and you as an Instructor can do it over two dives with a CD. Hint hint. ;-)

Would love to teach this to you!
