December Weather and Diving

December 2021 - 2020 - 2019 - 2018 - 2017 - 2016 - 2015 - 2014 - 2013 - 2012

After an average, maybe even a little cool, December 2020 December 2021 was again as usual: very nice and sunny. We had 20 really sunny days and 11 partly sunny days. No overcast days, unlike 2020 when we had 10 overcast days, much more than I ever recall having seen. We maybe had a little more rain than usual, but with most of it falling in the evening that hardly influenced anything. Temperatures were very comfortable in the low thirties every day with a nice cool seabreeze. Not too warm or humid. All in all it weas a very nice and comfortable month. Sea temperatures were as normal around 28-29 degrees Centigrade, unlike the really chilly 2019 conditions.
We had an averge number of days with a moderate or strong wind.

We could dive at all destinations on all days, although conditions at the housereef were not really good on 3 days. In 2020 we could on only 1 day not comfortably dive in the King Cruiser-Shark Point area, in 2019 that happened on 2 days. On one day conditions at the housereef were unsafe, on a few more days due to rain runoff visibility was really bad. In 2018 on all days we could dive at all destinations. In 2017 on 2 days we could not dive in the King Cruiser-Shark Point area, on 5 days we could no safely and comfortably reach Richelieu Rock and on 2 days we could not dive at the housereef. In 2016 on 1 day we were limited to Racha Yai and on 1 other day we could not dive at our housereef here in Kata Beach, in 2015 we could not dive in the Shark point area for 5 consecutive days, in 2014 we were on 1 day limited to Racha Yai, on 1 day we could besides Racha Yai also reach Phi Phi and on 1 day there was no diving possible in the Shark Point area and Koh Tachai and Richelieu Rock, in 2013 we could reach all divesites including our housereef here in Kata safely every day.
