When is the best time of year to go diving in Thailand?
It's got to be the most often asked question. What is the best month to go diving in Thailand? And the answer is in February. Not just here in Koh Tao but also over on the West coast if you fancy a visit to the Similan Islands. And the reason why February is so good? Well apart from the weather being reliably fantastic with clear blue skies & constant sunshine, its a great month for visibility & when it comes to marinelife encounters we got Whalesharks, large schooling pelagics, & if you're lucky we often have encounters with pilot whales, minke whales & if you're really lucky we've even had sightings of Blue Whales. On the west coast we get all of the above & mantas. Not bad eh? Which is why February is probably the best month of the year to go diving in Thailand. Check out these Minke's spotted yesterday in the Similans. Photocredit goes to Mr amazing Walter G. Schmit onboard Khao Lak Scuba's awesome liveaboard boat Manta Queen 2.
