THAILAND DIVING HOLIDAYS

An exotic colourful country with jungle clad mountains, mighty rivers, magnificent temples, vibrant nightlife and some of the best beaches in the Far East. Combine first rate Andaman Sea diving with some fascinating sightseeing or beautiful beach.

Sitting right on the western edges of Southeast Asia, Thailand could be regarded as the region’s dive outsider. Geographically beyond the borders of the Coral Triangle, Thailand still reflect much of the marine beauty of the neighbours, but her principal dive sites are rather more influenced by the effects of the Indian Ocean rather than the Pacific. From the smaller, peaceful reefs south of Phuket to the high drama of the Mergui Archipelago to the north, the variety of diving can be impressive. In the Gulf of Thailand the diving is around off shore islands such as Koh Samui and Koh Dho.

When it’s finally time to de-gas, days on land are a treat. Thai culture is rich- think orange-clad monks and golden Buddhas- the nightlife is heady and the cuisine outstanding. And the often contradictory elements of tradition and cutting-edge modernity are somehow held together by the charming people. Thailand’s diving is defined- or perhaps confused- by its position between two seas. The western coastline faces the Indian Ocean and is heavily affected by its deep water currents and contrasting monsoons. May to October sees driving, onshore winds pushing in from southwest. By November, calmer conditions return to the Andaman Sea as the monsoon swaps over to the northeast. Over in the Gulf of Thailand, wind patterns have the opposite seasonal effect All the way from South of Phuket and right up into Myanmar, there is a fantastic diving. Sea fans and colourful soft corals are plentiful. There are enourmous granite boulders, spectacular swim-throughs and swarms of colourful fish.
