King Cruiser Wreck is an 85-meter long passenger ferry that sank in 1997 by hitting the nearby Anemone Reef, and is now one of the most popular dive sites in Phuket. The wreck sits at a range of 12 to 30 meters making it perfect for divers of all levels, and allowing divers to have a good amount of bottom time to explore the wreck. It is now home to many different marine species and is slowly becoming colonised by many different types of colourful corals.

As it was a large passenger ferry, there are many decks and spacious areas for divers to explore. Divers are advised not to penetrate the wreck as the wreck has not been made dive safe and is in a poor condition. The large numbers of fish that live in the wreck, make it an extremely good dive for photographers. Large schools of snappers, barracuda, lionfish, fusiliers, goatfish, and rabbitfish have all taken up residence on the wreck. There are also crabs, shrimps, and eels hiding in the nooks and crannies of the wreck. The wreck has many scorpion fish and divers need to be careful what parts of the wreck they touch because of how many there are.

Divers have also seen reef sharks and groupers swimming along in the deep ocean next to the wreck. The dive is made more authentic by the continuous creaking of the wreck adding to the atmosphere of the dive.
