A team of technical divers from Davy Jones’ Locker has just returned from a joint expedition with Koh Tao Tech divers and Tech Thailand, videoing and surveying existing shipwrecks in the Gulf of Thailand looking at new marks in the Straits of Malacca. Miko from Koh Tao tech Divers and Stewie from Tech Thailand chartered the MV Giavanni Liveaboard vessel. Davy Jone’s Locker supplied the marks in the Straits of Malacca.
The expedition was very successful, locating three previously undived shipwrecks, and diving and documenting the infamous Tattori Maru and IJN Hatsutaka.
Also diving the wrecks of USS Lagarto, HMS Prince Of Wales, HMS Repulse, Sara Dee and IJN Kuma and a wreck believed to be the Akita Maru. One of the three new wrecks located is thought to be the Koso Maru, but this and the rest are yet to be confirmed. One is old and believed to be a WW2 Maru, and the other is the wreck of an unknown coastal cargo vessel that sits at 75m.
We will be posting a day by day, dive by dive account of this trip in the days to come. WATCH THIS SPACE.
