    I'll be heading to Koh Tao in early March 2010. Was just wondering what the island's like around that time? Also would anyone know what the scuba diving and general swimming is like as I've heard of the plankton around march.

    CHeers!!

    March is very good weather -- very busy on Ko Tao that time of year. I've moved this over to the diving forum as you may get more bites there...

    No worries, the weather should be good and so should the swimming and diving. If there is plankton that means you might see a whale shark! :-)

    March April May is a very good time to see whalesharks and when we see the most. We live and work here as scuba instructors and March is really the beginning of the best conditions here for the year. Yes we do get plankton but this is what brings in the whalesharks. If memeory serves me correctly this is also when we had a pair of whales cruising between the dive site too. Quite spectacular !
