Looks like a busy August on Koh Phangan

It’s August already, and Koh Phangan is getting much more lively. It’s that time of the year when everyone wants to do their PADI course and go fun diving or snorkelling. This is fine for the team at the dive centre – we like to be busy and especially love the chance to offer a variety of dive trips. A South-westerly wind continues to blow when it shouldn’t, making the surface a bit wavy, but we’re still making big boat trips to Sail Rock and shore diving in Chaloklum Bay. It’s still a little rough on the West coast of Koh Phangan at Mae Haad Reef and Koh...

Low-seasonal Observations from a sultry Koh Phangan

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...

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...

This small, beautifully shaped and patterned sea snail is frequently seen when we’re diving on the sand outside the reef at Koh Phangans local dive sites – especially at Mae Haad/Koh...

August means great SCUBA Diving in the Gulf of Thailand!

Greetings from a hectic dive centre – sorry (as always at this time of year) for the delayed update! SCUBA Diving conditions are currently fine and the Chaloklum Diving team of PADI pro’s are working hard – our dive boat has been out most every day – to a calm, clear, fish-filled Sail Rock and to the peaceful Anthong Marine Park for some shallower dive sites plus snorkelling with some of the best corals in the area. As a consequence we have not made any trips to Koh Tao for some time – maybe we can do it later this week… Welcome to a new member of the...
