The Dive School Autumnal Report

After a relatively hectic August on Koh Phangan, September has not turned out to be a busy month for the dive school – although as so often happens, we’ve had some great SCUBA diving and snorkelling to offer. OK – so the local diving, especially at Mae Haad Reef and Koh Ma, has sometimes been affected by the prevailing South-westerly wind but Chaloklum Bay has remained calm – continuing fine for PADI courses, SCUBA reviews and for Nick to do some underwater photography… Our biggest frustration has been that Anthong Marine Park has had consistently great...

Where does the time go on Koh Phangan?

Well, it feels like just a few weeks since we last posted a Chaloklum Diving blog but it’s actually nearly 2 months – we must be having too much fun! August has been a busy month as per normal, although the weather has been a little shaky at times, and it’s been great to get out to Anthong Marine Park on a regular basis again – with generally fine diving and snorkelling. We were surprised when conditions went down at Sail Rock a week or so ago, but are happy to say that they were back to 20+ metre vis and gentle current yesterday. Diving trips to Koh Tao have not been...

It’s a laid back June on Koh Phangan

As usual we’re experiencing glorious hot, sunny, calm weather and the island is really quiet! It does look like the whale sharks have moved on to somewhere else in the Gulf of Thailand for a (hopefully short) while, but we’re not worrying as the SCUBA diving and snorkelling at Sail Rock remains especially fine. As it’s low season on Koh Phangan there’s still not a lot of demand for different diving trips as yet – not long now… We hear that conditions at most of the Koh Tao dive sites are good but the prevailing summer south-westerly wind is messing with...

A hectic SCUBA Diving week on Koh Phangan…

We’ve just had a really fine week of diving in the Gulf of Thailand – 6 days of dive trips to 5 different destinations – with good visibility, calm seas and hot, sunny days. After this January’s weather and conditions we were having some problems remembering how it’s meant to be – SCUBA diving on the paradise island of Koh Phangan! Anyway Jan and his team of divers have already moved on to experience the delights of Khao Sok National Park – we wish them a great time, with thanks once again for diving with us. This means that we can confidently say...

A bit of Real Rainy Season in the Gulf of Thailand!

A bit of Real Rainy Season in the Gulf of Thailand!

For the last few days we’ve had some authentic rainy season conditions on Koh Phangan – proper waves crashing on the beach, a serious wind blowing through the dive centre, a thoroughly bad-tempered cat, plus some torrential rain for good measure. The diving school stays open as ever, but it’s more for the PADI pro’s to socialise, complain about the weather and enjoy an excellent noodle soup from Mr Chai across the road – thankfully he is still open! Today is actually a lot calmer although still wet, and the forecasts suggest that the worst should be over –...
