    Fierce, murky brown Monsoon waves

    Monsoon winds make trips to outlying islands an impossibility during the months of Oct-Feb. These waves can be quite dangerous, even if you are keen on drift diving. Please check the tidal charts or weather forecast before leaving or planning your trip at the link below. Also to note are the tidal rhythms. During very high hightides and very low lowtides, boats may have difficulty leaving or entering the Mersing jetty. You may have to wait quite a while for the tidal change. Check the tidal charts too
