A belated Happy New Year and Good Diving from Chaloklum!

It’s a great relief to be able to offer good diving conditions this January. Looking back to the same time last year on Koh Phangan we were not so lucky! At the moment Sail Rock has clear water and little current, our local dive sites are clearing up – fine for dive courses and snorkelling already, and diving trips to the Marine Park and maybe Koh Tao are in the pipeline… And the dive centre is reasonably busy, principally with PADI Open Water Diver courses and fun diving trips. As ever we do also have some PADI Pro training on the go as the mighty Honza works hard to...

December news from Koh Phangan

OK, so the weather was pretty dreadful around full moon party time on Koh Phangan, but for the last 2 days the sun has reappeared and the sea has gone flat. We are now getting used to this happening during our so-called rainy season. It’s amazing how quickly the Gulf of Thailand can change its character! So Chaloklum Diving are back in the water today with 3 PADI programmes, from beginner to professional.  Jan is a busy instructor with an Open Water Diver course plus Rescue Diver training with his and our friend, the Georgy Boy.  The man will be assisted by our dedicated...

Where does the time go on Koh Phangan?

Well, it feels like just a few weeks since we last posted a Chaloklum Diving blog but it’s actually nearly 2 months – we must be having too much fun! August has been a busy month as per normal, although the weather has been a little shaky at times, and it’s been great to get out to Anthong Marine Park on a regular basis again – with generally fine diving and snorkelling. We were surprised when conditions went down at Sail Rock a week or so ago, but are happy to say that they were back to 20+ metre vis and gentle current yesterday. Diving trips to Koh Tao have not been...

Whale Sharks in the Gulf in May?

Whale Sharks in the Gulf in May?

Chaloklum Diving wish you summer greetings from a typically peaceful, post-full moon party island. What’s not so typical is the fact that a bunch of Whale Sharks seem to have taken a liking to Koh Phangan’s top dive destination Sail Rock, and we’ve been seeing them most times that we make a diving, and snorkelling, trip out there. As it is also low season, it means that we have been neglecting our other favourite destinations – Anthong Marine Park and Koh Tao are still very much off the schedule although we have had some nice SCUBA dives at our local, Koh Phangan dive...

An interesting start to the year on Koh Phangan

An interesting start to the year on Koh Phangan

Long time no hear, you might say, and indeed it’s been nearly 3 months since we last gave an update on Chaloklum Diving goings on. Our excuse is that (sadly) there wasn’t anything special about January from the diving and snorkelling point of view, and then February (happily) was surprisingly busy – to the extent that we didn’t have time to do more than run an efficient diving school for a fair length of time – which is what we enjoy best, of course! February has featured great visibility at most of the dive sites we visit, allowing us to make a number of trips...
