The HTMS Sattakut (LCI : Landing Craft Infantry 724) shipwreck has become a favorite dive site for divers visiting Koh Tao. This former US World War II Navy vessel is 48 meters in length and was sunk the 18th of June 2011 to create a new artificial reef and another cool dive around our turtle island! As a US Navy Ship the HTMS Sattakut participated in the Battle of Iwo Jima, one of the battles between the USA and Japan during World War II.
The wreck’s keel or base sits in the sand at a maximum depth of between 27 and 30 meters while the top reaches to a depth of 18 meters – making this dive suitable for experienced divers with the Advanced Open Water certification. It lies 30 m from Hin Pee Wee, so we have an extra dive site with a lot of marine life nearby. Here you we have great schools of fusiliers, juvenile yellowtail barracudas, various snappers, wrasse and groupers!
