In the morning we met at Sea Dragon Dive Center. After a short briefing and a coffee we were driven by car about 15 minutes to a beach North of Khao Lak. A long tail boat waited there. It takes about 40 minutes to go to the Boonsung wreck.

We planned to dive the Boonsung wreck twice. You can find the wreck in a depth from 14-20 metres. Therefore we recommend diving with a Nitrox. Otherwise the second dive will get short.
What we found at the Boonsung Wreck, was much more than we had expected. The wreck was full of life. Schools of fishes were everywhere, porcupine fishes in between. Morey eels hid in the wreck, lots of lionfishes and scorpion fishes were around. Boonsung wreck TourDuring a surface time two liveaboards arrived at the wreck. Nearly 40 divers jumped in. We were happy to stay outside, to have a lunch and to relax in the sun. SMB’s showed at the surface. The dingies collected the divers and the liveaboards left the Boonsung wreck.
After a second and great dive we moved back to the Sea Dragon Dive Center.
