July Weather and Diving
July 2017 - 2016 - 2015 - 2014 - 2013 - 2012 - 2011 - 2010 - 2009 - 2008
July 2017 was a typical July: quite a few bright and sunny days, some of those partially sunny. But just a few overcast days and not much rain during the day.
We did experience some days with a moderate or strong wind, but that is expected this time of year. The wind did affect the diving options on eight days this year, but even on most of those days the sun was out and being on the boat was a nice experience.
In 2009 the diving boats could not go out on one day in July because of the weather conditions, in 2010 there was one day where we were limited in our destinations because of the height of the waves, in 2011 and 2012 we were also on one day limited in our destinations. In 2013 there was one day where we could only go to our alternate destination of Coral Island and one day where we could only go to Racha Yai and Phi Phi, in 2014 on two days we could only go to Coral Island, on eight days we were otherwise limited, in 2015 on three days we could not go diving at all, on two days we were limited to Coral Island, on four days could only go to Racha Yai, on four days only to Racha Yai and Phi Phi and on one day we could not dive in the Shark Point area, in 2016 on six days we could not dive in the Shark Point area and on four days we were limited to Racha Yai. This year on five days we could not dive in the King Cruiser-Shark Point area, on two days we were limited to Racha Noi and Racha Yai and on one day to Racha Yai. On the other days the boats could go to all destinations, but based on the forecast we cancelled all diving on one of those days, which was in hindsight not necessary. Also on a few other days we decided to change destinations due to the weather forecast, even though the boats were going to the scheduled destination (but did not always reach it). Looks like we value safety and comfort much more than others.
