The Islands are opening 15th October, worth the trip.
i can confirm,weather permitting,boats are scheduled to go out to similans on the 16th.but the weather is still unpredictable.
Thanks for your replies but our visit will end before the 15th. Are there any other options you can suggest?
None from Khao Lak's beaches even in the High Season. Nearest is from Phuket.
Thanks Arandora. Guess it will just be food, booze and lounging by the pool/beach.
Yep. It really is a hard life! ;-)
As you will be in Phuket: Racha Island or Raya Yai (both mean the same island) some 30-40 min from Chalong harbour has snorkeling conditions year around. During monsoon season east side beaches/bays are still calm. I do not know if any scheduled boats/trips are available this time of year. it might be that only boats of the resorts in island operate now ( like the Racha) .
