Thailand in a Nutshell - Hosting divers in both the Andaman Sea and the Gulf of Thailand from over 1200 miles of coastline, this scuba destination is a great fit for divers of any level.
Water Temperatures: 81-84 F / 27- 86 C
Visibility: 10 m - 40 m (32 - 131 ft) depending on the season and location.
Depth Range: 5 - 40 m (16 - 131 ft)
Best Time to Dive - Within the Gulf of Thailand, diving is available almost year round. November is the beginning of the monsoon season in which visibility drops and heavy rainstorms can occur but by the mid/end of December things typically have gone back to normal. On the Andaman side, dive times are more limited. Some areas are only available to dive parts of the year (like the Similians and Koh Lanta). In general October - April is the best time to dive the Andaman Sea.
Topside & Non-Diving Activities - You can try to "island-hop" to different destinations comparing their offerings. Every island has its own personality, so depending on what you are looking for... certain islands would fit best. Looking for a night on the town? Koh Phi Phi on the Andaman side, or Koh Tao in the gulf would be a good start. Prefer a relaxing evening instead? The Andamans, Koh Lanta, or Koh Samui in the gulf could be better alternatives.
