August is a great time to be there as the number of plankton (a tiny organism which is a crucial source of food to many large aquatic creatures) in the water increases. So, as the number of planktons increases, so does the number of large marine animals, giving us all a much better chance of getting to see some of the most majestic marine animals in the Indian ocean.
