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...

What’s your favourite Thai food ?

Posted by on Dec 19, 2016 in | Comments Off on What’s your favourite Thai food ?

* Our prize draw winners are listed below…* Many Chaloklum Diving customers have told us how they enjoyed some of their favourite Thai food in Thailand during their day out on our big boat – as well as the SCUBA diving and snorkelling, of course! Therefore we are planning to offer late afternoon to early evening non-diving, Koh Phangan trips featuring a rather special 3 course Thai meal from our super-chef, Lek.

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 –...

Quiet times on Koh Phangan

Quiet times on Koh Phangan

The Gulf of Thailand is calm, the weather is generally sunny (with the occasional serious shower), the SCUBA diving and snorkelling conditions are good and we even have whale sharks making appearances at Sail Rock. It’s such a shame that this time of the year is meant to be our rainy season!! Over the last few years we’ve been seeing this change in the weather – and now we’re trying to let divers know that there can be a chance of great diving on quieter dive sites at this time of year. Longer trips are off the agenda at present, so we’re not making any plans to...
