Treat Sea Conditions with Respect.
Locals and visitors should notice the Sea and Weather conditions, forecasts and data available when venturing out on the water. Phuket Island is in the tropics and, as such, has two distinct seasons with tropical weather patterns. Because of this, sometimes the sea conditions are not what they may seem.
There is an excellent article on Rip Tides from WikiHow that we would urge you to read.

Time: The time used in this tide table is Thailand Standard Time 7 hours ahead of Coordinated Universal Time at Greenwich.
Heights and Datum: The Heights of water predicted in metres for each station are referred to the above chart datum of the Thai nautical charts.
Variation of the sea level: Changes in the wind direction and the barometric conditions are the causes of variation in sea level. With onshore wind or a low barometric pressure heights of both high and low waters will usually be higher than those of the predicted levels, while offshore wind or high barometric pressure will cause them to be lower.
Relation of the tide to current: Upon using the tide tables, please bear in mind that the given times and heights of water are not related to the change in current direction or slack water. On the open coast, there is usually a slight difference between the time of high or low water and the beginning time of changing in the current direction, whereas in narrow channels or rivers, the difference may be considerable.
Type of tide: There are three types of tides in Thai waters, the diurnal, the semidiurnal, and the mixed type. It should be noted that there is a marked difference in the characteristics of the tide at each locality in the Thai waters. The tide of Bangkok bar is a mixed type, Laem Sing is a regular diurnal, Pattani is a semidiurnal no with inequality and Phuket is a regular semidiurnal.
