This is a very nice video of the Badai wreck. It is one of the best dives to be had on Orchid. It was salvaged and cut two halves by a dive buddy of mine Mr.Tseng a former commercial diver, who now owns a dive shop at Shan Hai near Kenting. This wreck is not accessible all year round. In fact the only time you can really guarantee seeing it is during the winter months. During late spring and summer, the prevailing winds often put it off limits. Unfortunately, this means that for most people they cannot get to see it unless they choose to fly to Orchid Island, as the ferry stops running from the beginning of October to April 1st.  April is usually Ok to see the wreck but you have to be lucky with the weather.
