Tempelhof

In 2008 as one of the first artificial reef projects in Thailand TDA – the Thai Diving Association – realized with the strong, active support of the Aqua Divers Team to sink six dismissed Sikorsky military helicopters and four Dakota airplanes close to the border of Sirikit National Marine Park near Bangtao Bay.

As in Germany famous "Berlin Tempelhof Airport" closed its public activities on the same day and the Berlin Airlift after WWII was primarily supported with Dakota aircrafts ("raisin bombers"), the Aqua Divers Team simply named this dive site as "Tempelhof". This "new artificial reef" is between 18 m and 24 m depth and distributed at intervals of about 30 m to each other.

Storms and rough seas in the off season, as well as trawling damaged the wrecks, unfortunately, so that today only some marvel parts remains under water. Some divers noted jokingly that it looks at "Tempelhof" like after a plane crash, but there is still an exciting scene of the airplanes and helicopters, with many remains of marine organisms settled to inspect.

This dive site is primarily dived to the tidal shutdowns to ensure optimum of good visibility and slow current conditions.
