At 48m/158ft in length, this former US Navy ship was sunk on June 18, 2011 to create an artificial reef. It is located near Koh Tao and sits at a max. depth of 30m/100ft, while the top of the mast protrudes to a depth of approximately 18m/59ft. The HTMS Sattakut has much to offer: a large 76mm/50 Mark 22 DP gun mounted on the bow and a 40mm/60 Bofors Mark III cannon at the stern, as well as numerous portholes and doorways to explore. Generally, wreck specialty divers have ample opportunities to penetrate this site, with lots of entrances and exits. The wreck is home to thick schools of fusiliers, yellowtail barracudas, giant grouper, moray eels, and blennies, as well as corals, anemones, and other motionless creatures that attach themselves to the metal structure. The site is more suitable for intermediate and experienced divers.

When to go

The climate is generally hot and sunny all year round, except for the monsoon season (end of October until the beginning of December). The high diving season is from February to the beginning of October, with an average water temperature of 28C/82F.

What to see

While diving here divers will spot schools of fusiliers, yellowtail barracudas, giant grouper, moray eels, and blennies, as well as corals, anemones.
