Tin Lizzy wreck in front of Bangtao beach

Phuket1 Feb 2022 - 1 Feb 2022 with Merlin Divers Phuket

Tin Lizzy is a tin-mining excavator that has fallen of a boat over 30 years ago. This little wreck together with 3 huge piles concrete blocks is home to many many fishes. You can find all sorts of reef fishes on the wreck and certainly a very interesting dive sites for macro photography.

The dive site also offers some very hard to find creature like real stone fishes, flounders albeit small ones and the flatfish aka crocodile fish.

From Kamala beach it is a boat ride of about 30 minutes on a converted longtail boat - typical Thai style wooden boat. Merlin divers offers a half day trip that often visits Tin Lizzy. Th season to dive there runs from end of September to middle of May. The dive site depth is maximum 16 meters at high tide. The site is also big enough to do 2 dives there.

The dive site is sensitive concerning the visibility because it is hardly a kilometer out of Bangtao beach hence with the shallow water and waves it quickly gets the visibility to less than 10 meters. Best is always to dive Tin Lizzy with slack high tide or slack low tide around half moon when the change of low to high tide is the minimum.
