October Weather and Diving
October 2022 - 2021 - 2020 - 2019 - 2018 - 2017 - 2015 - 2014 - 2013 - 2012
October 2022 was after an excellent 2021 as bad as it gets wuith less sun and more wind than we tend to see.
We had only 2 really sunny days and 16 days that were at least partially sunny, and 13 overcast days.
All in all, October 2022 was a bad month for diving wuth 9 really wet days and 13 days with a moderate or strong wind.
In 2012 we could reach all divesites on every day of the month, in 2013 we were on 3 days limited to Coral Island, in 2014 on 4 days we could not safely go out at all and on 1 day were limited to Racha Yai, in 2015 we could again safely go out to all destinations on every day, in 2017 on 1 day we could not dive in the King Cruiser-Shark Point area and on 1 day we were limnited to Racha Yai, in 2018 on just one day we could not dive safely in the King Cruiser-Shark Point area and in 2019 we could safely and comfortably dive all days on all destinations. In 2020 on 5 days diving in the King Cruiser-Shark Point area would not have been safe, and on 5 days we were limited to Racha Yai, diving at our housereef was for sensible operators off for the whole of the month. Last year despite the calm weather on 6 days diving in the King Cruiser-Shark Point area was not safe, and on 3 days we were limited to Racha Yai. Diving at our housereef was possible on some days. This year there was no diving at our housereef, I think only 1 person attempted and quickly regretted, which was mainly due to swell and rain. There were windy days but not many days with a really strong wind, so on only 3 days we were limited to Racha Yai, on 2 days to Racha Noi and Racha Yai and on 2 days diving in the King Cruiser-Shark Point area was not possible.
Unfortunately we made a mistake, and can not retrieve the data for 2016 anymore. So we're sorry, but the October 2016 overview will be missing. I can say that it was a month with a few wet days and many days with some rain, especially in the night but also some rainshowers during the day. We did go diving every day, but were restricted on some days.
