What we're about

Meet other divers who live here in Bangkok. Our trips are carefully planned and always have a great group of folks going. We don't have anything to sell and we don't make any money off of our trips - our only goal is to build a community and plan great trips.

The BK Dive Crew is a tight-knit group of friends that hang out here in Bangkok and go on dive trips together.

HTMS Chang: Thailand's Largest Wreck [FULL]

Bangkok

The HTMS Chang makes for an amazing dive and is the largest recreational wreck in Thailand. The ship was commissioned by the United States in 1944 as the USS Lincoln County and aided the invasion of Okinanawa as a troop transport and cargo ship. In the years following, the landing ship was transferred to South Korea, helping to build forces in the region and eventually participate in the Korean War. In 1961 the USS Lincoln County was decommissioned and soon sold to Thailand, where it served the Royal Thai Navy until 2012 when it was sunk to create an artificial reef. These days it is one of Thailand's best wrecks, a fantastic site for both recreational and technical diving. The wreck is just off the coast of Koh Chang. So, we'll carpool to Trat on Fri Jan 22 after work and get a hotel near the pier. On Sat we'll dive all day, hang out on Koh Chang overnight, dive Sunday, and then carpool back. = Diving = This trip will focus solely on the wreck - we'll park the boat there all day Saturday and Sunday. = Experience = Divers of all experience levels are welcome, from Open Water to CCR. An Advanced Open Water certification is required, but this is a great place to do it. = Pricing = Dives will be run on a cost-basis. The boat is chartered for 60,000thb per day, and costs will be split evenly amongst all attendees. Boat Costs: ~3000thb/day, includes lunch and 3 air tanks Nitrox: At cost Dive Guide: ~600thb/day, with groups of 4 max Gear Rental: 500thb/day Hotel: ~1000thb/day Deposit: 3000thb to hold your spot
