Dive Site Name : T11 Wreck

Hitstory of Dive Site

T11 Wreck เรือจม ต.11 is a small Ship Wreck. Located just 50m away from Hin Raap South, Secret Reef and Blueberry Hill.

The T11 Wreck เรือจม ต.11 was a Coastal Patrol Gun Ship. The T11 was a built by PGM Motor Gun Boat. The Boat was launched on the 14 September 1964 by the US Navy. Named as PGM 71 and then on the 5 May 1965 it was transferred to the Thai Navy. And named T11 Wreck เรือจม ต.11.

The ship was then transferred to Koh Chang and sunk on 17 December 2013. It is a 30 meter long Gun Boat and resting at a depth of 16 meters. The ship is no longer in one complete piece. It has been blown apart and broken in half, now the T11 lays slightly to one side. The crow’s nest is now standing on the sandy bottom as opposed to where it should be(on the ship).

The T11 Wreck เรือจม ต.11 is a great dive site for several reasons, it can be used for a wreck speciality course and navigation courses or just for a fun dive. As already stated the ship is only 30 meters long. So it makes it quite difficult, to do a whole dive here. Divers will have two options. you can spend some time exploring the ship. After taking a heading to Hin Raab South, Secret Reef or even Blueberry Hill. Just keep an eye out for a Compass wearing Trigger Fish on the way, it’s our special friend. Navigation on the T11 Wreck เรือจม ต.11 Your other choice is. Take heading out to some concrete blocks which are not far away. And have some fun playing around, diving though the blocks to test your bouncy skills. On the T11 Wreck เรือจม ต.11 you have many Schools of Fish but not many corals but it is well worth diving and looking inside all the hatches and the broken apart ship. Just keep an eye out there have been bamboo sharks here and again maybe you could see a black tip.

Maximum Depth : 16 m

Hitstory of Dive Site

The USS Lincoln County 898 was built in 1944 by the US Navy as a tank landing boat during the 2nd World War and served in the Guadal Canal, as well as in the Korean War (1950-52). Later, in 1962, the USS Lincoln County was sold and transferred to the Thai Navy. The ship was renamed to “HTMS Chang” by the Royal Thai Navi. After 50 years of service in the Thai Navy, the HTMS Chang was released from service in 2012 and is now retired. Before the huge veteran could be released into final retirement, all doors, windows and equipment were removed. After a thorough cleaning the ship was prepared for its new life under the surface. Today it serves officially as an artificial reef in front of Koh Chang.

On November 22, 2012, when the HTMS Chang was sunk, our Chief Instructor Rittichai Chamhan (“Pern”) was also to watch the sinking live – he was one of the first divers to be allowed to dive with a team of experienced wreck divers 20 minutes after the ship was sunk. The team checked the correct position of the ship. Afterwards the task was to draw a map and to record the measurements of the different altitudes.
