The monsoon season in Phuket does bring about stronger winds, bigger swells and a higher chance of rain, but it also means less tourists! Before we undertake any of our trips, whether in the dry or monsoon season, we check the tides, swell chart, satellite images, local weather radar and weather reports. If we feel there is any danger to you, our boat or us we will cancel the trip as early as possible. Simba will cancel a trip if we feel anyone’s safety is compromised.
Because of the exposure to the Indian Ocean sea swells, we assess our Phi Phi tours on a daily basis, and these can be subject to cancellation between May and November. If this is the case, you have the choice of a full refund, or a switch to a Phang Nga bay tour where the water conditions are generally better.
During May to September our Phang Nga Bay tours are more protected from the elements and generally has smaller waves and wind effect.
The concept of ‘safety first’ is extremely important to us.
