Eagle rays, leopard sharks, devil rays, mantas, barracuda and tuna grace the pristine waters: diving in Koh Lipe is unmissable.

When to dive in Koh Lipe

Scuba diving in Koh Lipe can be enjoyed all year. The island’s dry season runs from November-April with the driest months in December-February. Water temperature throughout the year ranges from 26-29°C. Visibility varies from 10 to 30m.

With higher levels of plankton in the water between May and September, diving in Koh Lipe during these months gives you the highest chance of seeing a whale shark.

After the sun has set wander down to the beach away from the fluorescent lights of beachside restaurants and look for the sparkling blue dots washed up on the sand. Bioluminescent plankton glows like fireflies in the darkness. For any marine enthusiast, this experience is mind-blowing.
