March Weather and Diving

March 2022 - 2021 - 2020 - 2019 - 2018 - 2017 - 2016 - 2015 - 2014 - 2013 - 2012

Unlike nearly all previous years we experienced quite a few windy days in March 2022. And whilst imn previous years it was hot and sunny on an almost continous basis, yhis year we have days with clouds and some rain, both during the day and at night, as well. We had 14 really sunny days and 16 partially sunny, so not much cloudcover, and we had 8 days with some rain during the day and 5 with rain in the evening or at night. And some of that rain came down in hearvy showers, really exceptional for March.
As mentioned the wind was stronger than usual as well.

In March 2011 we had highly unusual five days where we were limited in dive destinations and two days where there was no diving possible at all of the normal destinations. March 2012 was in this respect back to normal, with 2 days no diving at our housereef in Kata possible and on 1 day the wind was too strong for diving at Racha Noi and Richelieu Rock. In 2013 we could dive at all destinations every day of the week, in 2014 on 2 days no diving at Richelieu Rock and in 2015, 2016 and 2017 on 1 day no diving in the Shark Point area or at Richelieu Rock. In 2018, 2019, 2020 and 20212 we could dive at all destinations on all days. However due to the Covid 19 problems there were not many people around especially in 2021, improving diving conditions even further. In 2020 authorities banned all diving activities, first from the boat, later also from the beaches, so for quite a few days there was no diving at all possible. This year on 4 days we could not dive at Kata Beach, and on a few more days diving was possible but not very nicve.
