October Weather and Diving
October 2021 - 2020 - 2019 - 2018 - 2017 - 2015 - 2014 - 2013 - 2012 - 2011
After excellent months of October in many previous years but a disappointing October 2020, October 2021 was again excellent with many sunny days and not many windy days.
We had 11 really sunny days and 15 days that were at least partially sunny, and only 5 overcast days.
All in all, October 2021 was a good month for diving with unfortunately not many people around. 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 sensibke operators off for the whole of the month. This year in October 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.
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.
