05/Sep/09 Scuba Diving @ Pimalai during the Green Season
The Dive Center is now open everyday during the Green Season (May to Mid October). Recognized with a PADI Excelence Award for outstanding customer services and professionalism, our experienced Diving management team will make you feel very welcome. The wrm waters of the Andaman Sea offer excellent diving with a choice of dive sites suitable for all levels of divers from beginner to the very experienced. Our dive center is open all year and operates diving and tours subject to the weather and sea conditions. Sometimes towards the end of April or early May the weather and sea conditions can change. At this time, on Koh Lanta, we continue to enjoy regular days of sunshine, but the wind direction will move from the SE to the NW and this can cause a change in the sea conditions and wave movements in the Andaman Sea, resulting in higher and lower tides on the island's beaches. When this occurs, (usually at the end of April or early May), we need to remove our eco-friendly floating jetty from in front of the resort and make other arrangements for diving excursions, as it is not possible to depart directly from the beach at Pimalai. Overland travel of up to 30 minute may be required to reach our dive boat. On most scheduled days our scuba dive tours are not inhibited by the weather or sea conditions during the green season, but we cannot predict the weather, and each year it is a little different. In the rare event of extreme conditions all diving is suspended. We ask that our guests to be a little flexible for the days they select to go diving.
