Racha Yai Dive Sites - Haruby and Andaman Eagle Wrecks

Out from the reef between bays 1 and 2 there are two wrecks deliberately sunk as artificial reefs, surrounding them are the artificial reef cubes.


The Haruby was sunk in 2009 and was an old liveaboard made of steel lying upright at 20m, the Andaman Eagle was sunk a little earlier in 2007 and is an wooden construction lying at 28m leaning slightly to her side.


There is a descent line which goes to the Haruby, where long fin batfish hang around, often following you as you circuit the wreck.

Haruby has many lionfish and scorpion fish on it and at the bow you have a change to see an ornate ghost pipefish. From the bow there is a line connecting the two wrecks, but usually visibility is good enough to see the Andaman Eagle.

This wreck is in a more degraded state, with much of the wooden structure rotting away over the years. Here angelfish, scorpion fish and lionfish are seen.

Once the wrecks have been explored head past the cubes, look out for pipefish, and nudibranchs, also the devil scorpion fish has been seen here. Head into the shallow water over the sand, looking out for garden eels, gobies with their shrimp, khule’s stingrays and flounders on the way
