The Diving School Commitments

Posted by on Mar 22, 2016 in | Comments Off on The Diving School Commitments

After 20 excellent years of running Chaloklum Diving, we were asked to make a statement of what we believe in.┬áHere we go… SAFETY: Starts with pure, clean air in your tank and reliable dive gear, expertly maintained by our highly experienced technician. Backed up by a genuine respect for safe diving practices and support for diver safety, as sponsors of our local Deco Chamber and members of Divers Alert Network, S.E. Asia. STRAIGHT ADVICE: We give realistic assessments of diving and snorkelling conditions – if conditions are not suitable we will tell you. And all our counselling...

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...

A busy start to June for Chaloklum Diving on Koh Phangan

There’s actually been some action at the dive centre leading up to the full moon party after a very quiet week or so on Koh Phangan – 3 PADI Advanced Open Water students in addition to our usual bunch of fun divers and discoverers of SCUBA diving.

Diving conditions remain good at Sail Rock but it’s been some time since we last visited Angthong Marine Park or Koh Tao – hopefully we will have an...

May is a peaceful month on Koh Phangan in the Gulf of Thailand

Chaloklum Diving School has been quite busy towards the end of April and into early May with the opportunity to make a few dive trips to the Marine Park and Koh Tao as well as Sail Rock, plus Michi and the team teaching a bunch of PADI Open Water Divers plus a few Advanced courses. However over the last week, as per normal, everything has started to slow down on Koh Phangan and we can relax a little. This is definitely not a bad thing, as Michael has just left to take a months break in Germany – how many years since you’ve been home, hey man?? – and our hard working...
