Pre-full moon diving update from Chaloklum, Koh Phangan

AS the full moon party approaches it’s got a little windy again on Koh Phangan, so we’ve decided on a dive trip to Angthong Marine Park today, instead of Sail Rock. Mr Gav was at Koh Tao 2 days ago on a PADI Deep Diver course, and he reported excellent conditions at Shark Island, so maybe after the party we’ll be making a diving and snorkelling expedition “up North”. We are also reinstating our Wednesday 3 Dive Special Trips, although we are planning to visit the Satakut Wreck or Shark Island instead of Chumphon Pinnacles. We’ve been quite busy at the dive...

Thought to be grey reef sharks when originally seen on scuba dives at Chumphon Pinnacles, out beyond Koh Tao; they are now definitely identified as bull sharks. Mid-2012 saw them hanging out at Sail Rock for the first time, and they were a common sight on diving trips there until...

Whale Shark; Rhincodon typus

Your normal Whale Shark seems to prefer the deeper dive sites beyond Koh Phangan. Sail Rock, Southwest and Chumphon Pinnacles are their favourites. When scuba diving or snorkelling with them, please show proper respect. Keep your distance and switch off your strobes or camera flash if doing underwater photography....
