Kuantan Wreck
« on: 07 Apr 11, 17:48 »
Can fellow SSGians share their experience with diving the Kuantan Wreck? Who did you go with and how many dives did you do on it? Best time of year to do the dives?

here's the thread on the Kuantan & Varella wrecks.

http://scubasg.com/index.php?topic=1099.0

went on a LOB with MV Beach Boy via Tg Gemuk couple years back sometime in July. Good recreational depths but the sites have strong currents & tons of fishing nets. marine life was really good tho. did a total of 9 dives during the LOB. if i recalled correctly, best time to dive is around Apr - Sep.

I was there last November but condition was unfavorable due to the end of season. Strong current and poor visibility but like Yazid said, marine life was good. Have a look at the link. Michael provide a very good description on the wreck.

I was there last May, calm seas, flat water, splendid Vis, approx 15-20m
a group of bumpheads were circling the wreck,
instead of MV Beachboy, i used MV divemaster.

Lots of coral cat sharks at the tyre dive sites

Thanks for the info guys. MV Divemaster and Beachboy are from M'sia I'm guessing? Anybody have their contacts?

Awww shucks promised CAT and Jennifer I'll be there to help out ADEX with shark savers so I can't make it . Am looking to do it sometime in May or July though.
