Blog Wreck Diving on HTMS Sattakut Koh Tao
There is something about wreck diving that captures the imagination. Whether it is ships, airplanes and even cars, an artificial reef for scuba divers, or lost as the result of an accident, wrecks are fascinating windows to the past.
For decades, old and decommissioned vessels have been scuttled and purposely sunk to create artificial reef structures. Koh Tao is home to a great wreck dive, The HTMS Sattakut. A vessel that has played her own part in world history.
From playing an important role in the Battle of Iwo Jima to being involved as a support ship during the atomic bomb tests at the Bikini Atoll. The Royal Thai Navy took control of her in 1947 from the US Navy and was sunk by the Thai Department of Marine Coastal Resources in 2011.
Now she lies about 30 metres south of the popular dive site Hin Pin Wee, off the island of Koh Tao.

A Brief History of the HTMS Sattakut
The vessel was built for the US Navy at the Commercial Iron Works, Portland in 1944 USS LCI (M)-739 (Landing Craft Infantry) as an amphibious assault ship during the Second World War (WW2).
Her purpose was to land large numbers of infantry directly onto beaches. She saw action during the pacific theatre of WW2, participating in some of the fiercest campaigns, particular the battles for Iwo Jima and Okinawa.
A war wreck with a genuine history, her role in these operations was to land US Marines onto the beaches and provide cover fire. She was awarded 3 battle stars during her active service.
After the war USS LCI-739 was commissioned into the Royal Thai Navy and renamed HTMS Sattukut (LCI 742) remaining in service until 2007.
After the removal of all hazardous materials, the Sattakut was sunk of the west coast of Koh Tao creating an artificial reef and much needed additional dive site.
The Sattakut has taken significant pressure off some of the more popular dive sites around Koh Tao.

Thailanddiving Koh Tao red rock diving site,coral reef, triggerfish, clown fisch and thailand diving Pattaya club

Red Rock | 5m-20m | Beginner

Red Rock pinnacle is great for a drop off site followed by a dive south into Japanese Gardens or as site on its own. Just a short swim from the pinnacle is Nangyuan Cave, a long swim through watch out for the nudibranches and your head. The corals to the north and south along this wall dive are home to a wide variety of marine life, porcupine pufferfish, black-blotched pufferfish, bannerfish, banded sea snake and lots more.

Japanese Garden Dive Site
Japanese Garden is a shallow and easy diving site in Koh tao. It is used by many of the dive centres for the first diving lessons due to the perfect conditions for beginners with calm water and no current. On the sandy bottom, there are nice coral formations with a good reef life. If you are lucky you might even spot a superb Eagle Ray flying by! Note that it can be crowded during the high season. The maxium depth is 15 meters deep. The Japanese Garden is located on the East side of Koh Nang Yuan.
This location is a Reef.
You can dive Japanese Garden all year long. Access: from the Shore. See the map of Japanese Garden on the right for the exact location.

Koh Tao
Diving hub of Thailand to learn how to dive. Cheap and easy diving on a beautiful island.

White Rock
Say hello to Trevor! White Rock, consisting of two groups of rock separated by a narrow channel of sand (depths from 9m to 24m), is home to Koh Tao’s single most notorious fish: Trevor the Trigger. A Titan triggerfish that has been the boss of the site for years, Trevor occasionally takes exception to divers disturbing his rest.
But no need to spend the dive looking over your shoulder, let Big Blue’s instructors and divemasters keep an eye out while you enjoy the sea snake, turtle, moray, blue spotted ray, butterfly fish or angelfish.
