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...

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...

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...

It’s time to take it easy on Koh Phangan!

In the period of about 1 week Koh Phangan has changed from rather hectic, high-season mode to a laid-back tropical island once more! Instead of a busy diving boat and dive sites we’ve more space both onboard and underwater – and although it’s nice to work hard for a while, the Chaloklum Diving team are not complaining at this peaceful start to September. Diving conditions remain great at Sail Rock, and with the excitement of several whale shark appearances last month, it has remained our favourite destination. We have enjoyed a diving and snorkelling trip or 2 up to Koh...
