The Pattaya wrecks

Pechburi Bremmen


Rating: Depth: 25m Visibility: 5-10m

The Petchburi Bremen, a 110-meter, it is a cargo plane severely damaged by a fire and an explosion in the engine room of the worm mid-1930.

Some cargo was saved and the boat was then scuttled. It sits right on a sandy bottom, the center section twisted and broken, not only by the explosion, but also by driving the demolition carried out by the Royal Thai Navy.

The Bremen is in three main parts. Advanced sections and severe are relatively intact, but the center is part of a tangle of steelwork.

But it is still an interesting place to dive. The part of the structure is separated from the rest. The private bathroom of the master. complete with bath, toilet and floor ceramic tiles very attractive, can be explored by experienced diver.

Enter the main sections of the hull is not recommended due to artificial damage and deterioration of steel over the years.

Nature has claimed the Bremen and many types of coral and sea whips growing on the sides and decks of the boat. Blue-ringed and six-banded angelfish, batfish, moray eels, rays, barracuda and many smaller fish live reef lives.

There is also a giant, but tipical, grouper, reported to be the size of a pickup truck which makes its home on the Bremen, and brought your camera or video with you.

Because of its position between two islands, strong currents may be encountered on the Bremen as well as considerable waves at certain times of the year. This dive is not for novices.

This wreck is partially broken up and lies on the sandy bottom at 24m, in an area of very strong currents, and subject to plenty of Thai Naval activity. 3 Large eagle rays patrol the dive site and are often seen resting on the sands. Bow and stern sections of this wreck are now separated by a large sand dune. Sometimes, attempts to dive this wreck have lead to dive boats being 'ushered off' by Thai patrol boats, or the un-buoyed wreck just not being found. Avoid this wreck on spring tides or on days with many Thai Naval vessels patrolling.
