December 2019 - 2018 - 2017 - 2016 - 2015 - 2014 - 2013 - 2012 - 2011 - 2010
December 2019 was sunny with 25 really sunny days and 5 partly sunny days. We only had 1 overcast day. And jusdt as in 2018 the rain was less than normal, temperatures were higher than average and the sea was on occasion quite chilly, down to 26 degrees on the local sites and even more at Similans. The wind was the main culprit here.
Because we did have many days with a moderate or strong wind, with 19 days clearly above average.
In 2019 on 2 days we could not safely and comfortably dive in the King Cruiser-Shark Point area, whereas in 2019 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.
