During the southwest monsoon that blows between May and October, the conditions on the Andaman coast become inhospitable for liveaboard diving and some boats redeploy to the Gulf of Thailand side which has an inverse weather pattern.

Thailand's best dive sites are located on the southwest coastline of the Andaman Sea, extending from the Burmese border in the north to the Malaysian border in the south.
