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...

We have photographed the Map Pufferfish on 2 occasions so far, on diving and snorkelling trips to the Marine Park and Koh Tao. It has a different patterning to and doesn’t grow as large as the Starry...

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...

Enjoying the Summer with Chaloklum Diving

Summer holidays in Europe mean a busy Koh Phangan this year and we are happy to say that all the team at Chaloklum Diving are hard at work! It’s great  to have a healthy range of PADI courses on the go, as well as to be making regular dive trips with our own boat. Our 3 dive special is back on the schedule along with trips to Koh Tao dives sites – in addition to the mighty Sail Rock – the only sad news is that we’re still waiting for some visibility at Angthong Marine Park, again… Today our boat has gone up to the East coast of Koh Tao with snorkelling customers...

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...
