Whale Sharks in the Gulf in May?

Chaloklum Diving wish you summer greetings from a typically peaceful, post-full moon party island. What’s not so typical is the fact that a bunch of Whale Sharks seem to have taken a liking to Koh Phangan’s top dive destination Sail Rock, and we’ve been seeing them most times that we make a diving, and snorkelling, trip out there. As it is also low season, it means that we have been neglecting our other favourite destinations – Anthong Marine Park and Koh Tao are still very much off the schedule although we have had some nice SCUBA dives at our local, Koh Phangan dive...

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...

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...

Koh Phangan Sunset Cruise

Posted by on Dec 19, 2016 in | Comments Off on Koh Phangan Sunset Cruise

Many Chaloklum Diving customers have told us how much they enjoyed the Thai food on their day out with our big boat – as well as the SCUBA diving and snorkelling, of course! Therefore we are offering late afternoon to early evening non-diving, Koh Phangan trips featuring rather special Thai food from our super-chef, Lek. The general plan is to meet up at the dive centre in Chaloklum at 4pm to get organised and depart from the pier by 4.30 pm. We cruise to the West coast of Koh Phangan for some afternoon snorkelling, socialising or just enjoying the fine view. Around about sunset time a...
