The Marine parks are now closed as for every year to let nature rest from tourist and divers and for safety as waves in open sea can be high as three meters as soon wind will blow.

So we passed from rain and storms as the picture here below takes from our new office building in Kathu
|Storm over Phuket Town - Thailand|
|May monsoon rains over Kathu - Thailand|
To clear sky flat sea and a beautiful rainbow as here below during the Phi Phi overnight trip on our leisure boat MV Sai Mai

As said Marine National Park on Andaman Coast of Thailand are now closed. This is normal and every year on 15th May the official closure is announced. Why the Marine park in Thailand close? First of all weather conditions, in Similan Islands and south of Lanta at hin Deng and Hin Muang the sea conditions can rapidly change. Won't be so nice to be outside the sea with two or three meters waves and may have to stay sheltered fro few days.
Second to allow the beautiful nature there to take a rest from torus, diving and all traffic generated by tourist activities.
They will re open on 15th October or soon after when weather conditions will become more stable with the Winter Monsoon
|See you again in October|
Can also compare with weather in Phuket in May 2013
