Low-seasonal Observations from a sultry Koh Phangan

After a surprisingly busy start to the month, it’s now low season. Koh Phangan is once again a peaceful, laid-back and very hot/humid island. Mae Haad Beach is fairly deserted and you can even drive around Thongsala without wondering where the next crazy driver is coming from! The SCUBA diving is still good – Sail Rock has excellent visibility, mild current and the occasional Whale Shark. Although Chaloklum Bay is a little cloudy (but still dive-able) the reefs at Koh Ma and Mae Haad are fine for Discover SCUBA Diving, long shallow fun dives, and snorkelling of course. As ever...

The Big Boat is Back and further Chaloklum Diving news from Koh Phangan

Well, it was meant to be a quick visit to a new boatyard in Suratthani, but Lek and Nick ended up spending 2 weeks there as a great team of craftsmen did a lot of necessary and thoroughly professional work. For sure, after all that it’s great to be back on Koh Phangan and a fine feeling to have the Chaloklum Diving boat looking so good. All we need is a little more SCUBA diving action – things are still quiet in the Gulf of Thailand, although the upcoming full moon party should make the island busier soon. Sail Rock remains our principal dive site with Angthong Marine Park and...

The Diving School slips back into gear on Koh Phangan

Koh Phangan has had a quiet, restful June and the team at the dive centre have been taking it fairly easy, and why not indeed? It’s fine to take a break, but also a little frustrating when Sail Rock has such great diving conditions and we haven’t made it out to Angthong Marine Park or Koh Tao for some diving and snorkelling for much too long… Hopefully the summer months will see rather more SCUBA action at the dive shop – amongst other things we are hoping to offer a wider variety of diving trips, and to promote more speciality dive courses featuring our experience...

The Phanganist – More than just parties

Posted by on Jun 24, 2016 in | Comments Off on The Phanganist – More than just parties

It’s been Six years since Phanganist.com was created and introduced to the world wide web, showcasing the neon colours and music of Koh Phangan – Phanganist was giving the rest of the world a view of the party island in paradise. Photos from parties, writing about the parties, partying at the parties, listing when the parties were taking place, speaking to the djs and more. But over the years most human beings learn that it can’t quite all be about partying… So, Phanganist.com has evolved naturally to start covering the whole low-down on Koh Phangan – this island has long...

Fine SCUBA Diving & Snorkelling at Full Moon Party time on Koh Phangan!

It doesn’t always happen, so we are truly happy to say that the SCUBA diving and snorkelling from Koh Phangan is looking great again, with a forecast of sunny weather and calm seas! As the full moon party is due in a few days we are able to offer a schedule for our dive boat and should be making trips to Anthong Marine Park, Sail Rock and the East coast of Koh Tao over the next days. As we also have a few dedicated divers and Chaloklum Diving supporters with us who will be staying for some time to go diving and in some cases to complete some PADI continuing education, we are planning...
