2019 – 2020 Similan Island Season
The 2019/2020 Similan Islands liveaboard season is fast approaching & now is the perfect time to plan and book your dive trip for 2019/2020.
As many scuba divers know the Similan Islands are currently closed for the monsoon season and will be re-opening around the 15th October.
It is now the ideal time to look into the available trips for the upcoming season, with some of the liveaboard boats offering some very good “early bird” discounts for bookings made prior to the end of August.
The 2018/19 Similan Islands Season
Last season the Similan Islands offered up some fantastic diving with some of the largest numbers of both Whale Sharks & mantaray seen over the season. Several trips in 2018 & early 2019 had sightings of both Mantas & Whalesharks, some trips even had multiple sightings on different dive sites.
The best fish life is always found at the dive sites in the North of Similans like Richelieu Rock, Koh Tachai & Koh Bon. To reach these better dive sites you should look at doing the 4d/4n or 5d/5n trips, as most of the longer trips will include Similan Islands + the norhtern islands.
Similan Islands is not just about the “big favourites’ though, the season also had a lot of other amazing critters, including turtles, sharks, larger pelagic’s and heaps of awesome macro life. The weather god’s did not disappoint this season, with most trips sailing in nice calm waters and reports of “gin” clear water having 40m visibility or more.
