Diving - August

Can anybody tell me what the diving status is in Khoa Lak for the month of August. I belive that it is out of season for the Islands, but does that mean that there is no diving whatsoever. If there is no possibility of any diving, then we don't go, so I really need some information - please.

Happy Hols!

Diving certainly is not allowed within the jurisdiction of the Similan and Surin Natioanl Parks from May to November. As for other areas you would be better contacting a local Dive Centre. List at www.khaolakyellowpages.com/divecenters.html

Arandora,

You've already given me some brilliant help which I am immensely grateful for and you have also already directed me to this site, which I have looked at, but all this takes time and I just want some answers, I know you are not a diver, I just want a diver to answer my question, especially if they have found themselves in a similar situation, what did they do in August. I am in contact with Liquid Adventure, but I am just trying to get a quicker answer as I have booking's etc to be made, if not here, then anywhere else in the world, that we have not been to, I am just rather keen to do this place, so am keeping my fingers crossed for some answers from within this site and from a few emails that are whizzing around. Thank you again so much and should I ask anything else, I know that I can rely on you.

Happy Hols.

I'm directing you to a Dive Centre because of the recent announcements by the Thai Ministry of closures of certain dive sites so what may have been the case last August may not be the case this year. So the Dive Centres will no best. Hope you find something.

There are some reck dives that can be done in August, as well as lake dives at Khao Sok.

Phi Phi has sites that I believe are open year round.
