So many people come to Phuket Thailand each year during the peak season. Then they seem to have the opinion that before December and After February is all monsoon season. WRONG.
During April and May there is some of the best days for scuba diving Thailand you will ever get. There are less people, the sea is at its warmest, the vizability is perfect as its been calm for 5 months or more. Plus you still have all the great marine life too.
There are so many phuket tours available both for diving and non diving alike. The seas are calm so a great time for the speed boats to go to places like James Bond island. Then there are the best of all the Thailand islands just there off the west coast the Similan islands. This chain of nine islands offers some of the worlds best diving and for the non divers its the best of the phuket snorkeling trips available. The similans are a paradise for everyone.
Every year if you are wanting a last minute dive trip there are some excellent discounts on similan islands livabaord trips. These normally become available from mid April so the amazing price matches the amazing diving. There is also plenty of phuket day trips too that are available all year round. The diving in phuket is suitable for all levels. For those who have never done it before and want to discover scuba diving phuket is the perfect place to start.
There are many other phuket safari tours both on an off the water like the great over night khao Sok safari tour through the lakes and Jungle in the Khao Sok national park. There is far more than just diving in phuket. The selection of phuket game fishing trips will give you the chance to not only catch a fresh tuna for your tea but also get to grips with a Sail fish or Black marlin too. The game fishing phuket has just off shore can be a real exciting day out.
So do not think that Phuket Thailand is just a couple of moths a year but it really is an all year round resort both on and off the water.
