September Weather and Diving
September 2020 - 2019 - 2018 - 2017 - 2016 - 2015 - 2014 - 2013 - 2012-2011-2010
After excellent months of July and August, September 2020 was average again, not as nice as the really good September 2019
and September 2018: some sun, some overcast days and an about average number of dayss with a moderate or strong wind.
Very important for diving in the area is the wind, and as mentioned the wind was about average, with 18 days with just a slight breeze. On 3 of the 12 days with a moderate or strong wind we could not go out and on one day we could not safely dive in the King Cuiser-Shark Point area. However the tourism situation has not changed, but with very limited tourism the diving has been excellent.
In 2019 on 1 day we were limited to Racha Yai, and on 1 day we could not reach the King Cruiser-Shark Point area safely and comfortably. In 2018 on 4 days we could only dive at Racha Yai, on 1 day at Racha Noi and Racha Yai and on 1 day we could dive everywhere except for King Cruiser-Shark Point area. In 2017 on 6 days we could only dive at Racha Yai and on 2 days we could not dive in the King Cruiser-Shark Point area, in 2016 on 1 day we could only dive at Racha Yai and on 4 days we could not dive in the Shark Point area, in 2015 on 2 days we could only dive at Racha Yai and on 5 days we could not dive in the Shark Point area but were able to dive at Phi Phi and Racha Noi, in 2014 on 2 days we could only dive at our alternate destination of Coral Island, on 1 day only at Racha Yai Island and on 3 days no diving at Racha Noi and Shark Point area. In September 2013 we could on four days not dive at Racha Noi, on one day we were limited to Phi Phi and Racha Yai and on two days we were limited to diving at Racha Yai Island.
All in all, September 2020 was an average September.
