It’s the February update from Chaloklum Diving!

Whale Shark sightings, Anthong Marine Park trips plus a whole lot of Divemaster trainees! It’s been all action at Chaloklum Diving of late, as Koh Phangan is quite busy and the weather (touch wood!) has been behaving reasonably well… Up to a few days ago we were having regular Whale Shark encounters at Sail Rock – we’ve got some nice photos and a few videos on file, as well as a bunch of divers with happy memories! Diving conditions are a little rough out there at the moment but are forecast to be calming soon. Good news is that we’ve been able to start taking...

Whale Shark at Marine Park !

After a somewhat shaky start this month we now have some great diving conditions – with real blue water diving and even the appearance of a big whale shark at Hin Yipon in Anthong Marine Park – plus a Whale Shark video from our Divemaster to prove it! Of course we are still visiting the spectacular Sail Rock, but we also have a special dive trip in mind for Advanced Open Water divers and above – probably cruising up to Shark Island at Koh Tao for dive one, then down to the legendary Samran Pinnacles for number two… Of course all this ties in nicely with our current...

Enjoying the Summer with Chaloklum Diving

Summer holidays in Europe mean a busy Koh Phangan this year and we are happy to say that all the team at Chaloklum Diving are hard at work! It’s great  to have a healthy range of PADI courses on the go, as well as to be making regular dive trips with our own boat. Our 3 dive special is back on the schedule along with trips to Koh Tao dives sites – in addition to the mighty Sail Rock – the only sad news is that we’re still waiting for some visibility at Angthong Marine Park, again… Today our boat has gone up to the East coast of Koh Tao with snorkelling customers...

A belated Chaloklum Diving update from a HOT Koh Phangan

A belated Chaloklum Diving update from a HOT Koh Phangan

We blame it on the heat! It’s so been so hot during the day at the dive centre in Chaloklum that we have just enough energy to manage the day-to-day business, but serious stuff like writing a diving school blog tends to get put off ’til tomorrow… However, it’s not so hot on a morning now and the blog is definitely overdue, so here goes. Koh Phangan is for sure even more torrid than normal for this time of year, and with minimal wind it means that the Gulf of Thailand is super calm, making for some great diving and snorkelling. And so of course (as ever!) the island...

Chaloklum Diving star at the Boot Show 2016!

As we wait for the weather to clear on Koh Phangan after a nasty post full moon party storm, the nicest view of Chaloklum Bay is at the “Boot Show” in Dusseldorf! Fred & the team (Freddies Angels?) are working hard promoting the delights of scuba diving in the Gulf of Thailand, as well as all the other interesting activities that are possible on our delightful island. We’re waiting with anticipation for photos of Angie joining the gang and for the progress of the Chaloklum Diving Facebook “selfie” competition… The diving school PADI professionals have...
