One of the most questions asked by people inquiring for their holiday on Phuket during the period from May till end of October is: Will the weather to be good enough for scuba diving?

The only part of Thailand for diving that is off limit during the European summer months are the Similan islands. The national park is closed from the beginning of May till the end of October.
All other main destinations for scuba diving are all year round available – like Phi Phi islands, Racha Islands and the marine sanctuary with Shark Point Phuket, Anemone Reef, King Cruiser wreck and Koh Doc Mai.
One fact you need to know: Phuket is the province in Thailand where it rains the least of all provinces. It’s simply because the mountains are not high enough to stop the rain clouds.
However if you book a holiday during the month of June, July and August to the east of Phuket like Krabi or to the north of Phuket like Khao Lak you might be in for some heavy rain and weather conditions and certainly far less diving days to get than on Phuket.
Phuket is the province in Thailand where it rains the least of all provinces in Thailand.
