Chaloklum Diving star at the Boot Show 2016!

As we wait for the weather to clear on Koh Phangan after a nasty post full moon party storm, the nicest view of Chaloklum Bay is at the “Boot Show” in Dusseldorf! Fred & the team (Freddies Angels?) are working hard promoting the delights of scuba diving in the Gulf of Thailand, as well as all the other interesting activities that are possible on our delightful island. We’re waiting with anticipation for photos of Angie joining the gang and for the progress of the Chaloklum Diving Facebook “selfie” competition… The diving school PADI professionals have...

Happy New 20 Years from the Chaloklum Diving team

Greetings from a busy diving school – as soon as the new year kicked in, the diving and snorkelling conditions turned lovely – along with the weather! So nice that we were able to visit one of our favourite dive sites – Anthong Marine Park – much sooner than normal for a fine day out. Our dive boat is at Sail Rock today and has already reported excellent visibility, monster schools of barracuda, calm seas and just a little current on the 2nd dive. The team are busy diving of course, and beyond the usual Discover Scuba Diving and Open Water Diver training we have a...

Chaloklum Diving School approaches 20 years on Koh Phangan

Yet another year of Koh Phangan island life is coming to an end and Chaloklum Diving Ltd. Part. is about to celebrate 20 fine years of underwater excellence in the Gulf of Thailand! Needless to say we are genuinely happy to still be here after all this time, and as well as planning to have a serious party or two we feel that it’s also the right time to make a few interesting changes at the dive centre (and beyond) – more news to follow in the forthcoming weeks…. SCUBA diving and snorkelling conditions are still good at our local dive sites as well as out at Sail Rock, but...

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...

The Chaloklum Diving PADI team reassemble on Koh Phangan

As we move into the second half of what’s been a quiet month the dive centre is starting to get more lively with the return of Michi and Michael – after a month in Germany they both seem happy to get back to PADI Professional and Koh Phangan island life! Sail Rock has had “look down to the bottom from up on the surface” visibility for a number of days now, and we hear that Koh Tao dive sites should be fine too, but as ever we are waiting for news on Anthong Marine Park diving and snorkelling conditions, although it was still looking rather good last week. Of course...
