Wreck divers have a choice of shallow colorful coral reefs to explore.
But one of the main attractions for the visiting scuba addicts in Thailand is diving into the sunken shipwrecks within easy reach of tourist resort areas.
Wreck diving is popular for recreational and technical scuba divers and many of the deep wreck dives require special dive skills and wreck specialty equipment for underwater exploration and wreck penetration.
Wreck diving is not just about diving around ships, though there are some great shipwrecks that have been intentionally sunk and they have obvious attractions as dive sites of archaeological and historical interest.
Though many of the wrecks are metal-hulled vessels, there are also wooden ships dating back hundreds of years. Diving into the wrecks offers divers a variety of scuba adventures because the wrecks form artificial reefs which can attract all sorts of coral and aquatic life.
After a period of time, the structure may become encrusted with marine growth and smaller fish will tend to exploit the safety and shelter of the nooks and crannies that are offered by sunken wrecks. Wrecks tend to be inhabited by shoals of larger fish, such as barracuda, trevallies, and fusiliers.
