Years after the incident, King Cruiser Wreck has became a wonderful diving spot. This dive site is suitable for certified divers as the wreck is located at a 35m depth. Thus if you would like to enjoy this dive site, you can take up the PADI Advanced Open Water and PADI Specialty courses at the King Cruiser Wreck. The simplest and the safest point of entry is through the vessels’s stern where divers can explore the once active car decks. There are still machinery sitting on the deck.

The King Cruiser Wreck would offer you marine life delights such as the lionfish, nudibranch and sometimes if you are lucky enough, turtles.

This car ferry wreck is now a famous recreational dive site. It lies at the depth of 32 meters in an upright position. The tip of King Cruiser Wreck lies at 15 meters. Till today, the wreck is still pretty much intact although some parts are corroded.

A recommended way for descent is by using the marine line from the surface. It would take you to the car deck from where you would be able to enter safely. Objects that can be spotted are machinery, engine trolley , picnic tables and tyres.
