Malaysia :: Perhentians : Pasir Tani Wreck

The wreck of a landing craft used by Vietnamese boat-people on route to Malaysia lies upright in 22 meters off the southwest coast of Perhentian Kecil. She sank in 1976 while being towed to Kuala Besut for repairs. Viz can be limited here if strong currents have stirred up the sand. Soft coral growth is quite exstensive on the top of the wreck and lionfish can be seen suspended in the water here. Barracuda often lurk around the structure in search of another meal.

 

Depth: 18 - 24m

Viz: 3 - 10m

Currents: Occasional

Getting there : Boat 45 mins
