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...

It’s the February update from Chaloklum Diving!

Whale Shark sightings, Anthong Marine Park trips plus a whole lot of Divemaster trainees! It’s been all action at Chaloklum Diving of late, as Koh Phangan is quite busy and the weather (touch wood!) has been behaving reasonably well… Up to a few days ago we were having regular Whale Shark encounters at Sail Rock – we’ve got some nice photos and a few videos on file, as well as a bunch of divers with happy memories! Diving conditions are a little rough out there at the moment but are forecast to be calming soon. Good news is that we’ve been able to start taking...

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...

The Dive School Autumnal Report

The Dive School Autumnal Report

After a relatively hectic August on Koh Phangan, September has not turned out to be a busy month for the dive school – although as so often happens, we’ve had some great SCUBA diving and snorkelling to offer. OK – so the local diving, especially at Mae Haad Reef and Koh Ma, has sometimes been affected by the prevailing South-westerly wind but Chaloklum Bay has remained calm – continuing fine for PADI courses, SCUBA reviews and for Nick to do some underwater photography… Our biggest frustration has been that Anthong Marine Park has had consistently great...
