July Weather and Diving
July 2019 - 2018 - 2017 - 2016 - 2015 - 2014 - 2013 - 2012 - 2011 - 2010 - 2009
Normally July has quite a few bright and sunny days, some of those partially sunny. July 2019 was even better with 17 really sunny days and in total 26 at least partially sunny days. We had just 5 overcast days and hardly any rain during the day, also the evenings and nights were really much dryer than usually.
Also windwise July 2019 was really nice: 22 calm days with jusdt a slight breeze and just 9 days with a moderate or strong wind, less than we usually see, and just 6 days where the wind affected the diving.
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. In 2017 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.
In 2018 on six days there was no diving at all, on seven days we could go to Racha Yai only, on three days to Racha Noi and Racha Yai only and on four days we could not go to King Cruiser-Shark Point area. This year on four days we could not comfortably and safely go to the King Cruiser-Shark Point area, and on two days we were limited to Racha Yai. On the other days the boats could go to all destinations.
