The Diving School Commitments

After 20 excellent years of running Chaloklum Diving, we were asked to make a statement of what we believe in. Here 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 on your diving, training and equipment requirements is based on what will be best for your needs!

PERSONAL CARE:
Genuine personal attention means that our PADI professionals care for no more than 4 people at a time – we won’t refuse a single student, as long as there are staff free!
As passionate divers, our team enjoy explaining what you saw on your dives and helping you to improve your diving technique, as well as socializing and answering your questions about Ko Phangan island life!

TIME and SPACE:
We’re in no hurry, so you won’t feel rushed; our policy is to have long, relaxed dives – we believe in leisurely diving and snorkelling!
By teaching only in small groups, our instructors have the time to help you overcome problems and truly refine your diving.
And doing it from our dive boat means a really spacious, stable, well-equipped vessel with plenty of room for everyone (as well as some remarkably good Thai food!).

ENVIRONMENTAL CONCERN:
In addition to preaching environmental awareness to all our customers, we are involved in numerous annual beach/reef cleaning days and actively support PADI’s “Project AWARE”, Thailand’s “Green Fins” plus the Core Sea marine biology team here in Chaloklum Village.

RICH EXPERIENCE:
Chaloklum Diving have been established for 20 fine years on Koh Phangan with a genuine love of SCUBA diving and a lasting commitment to customer satisfaction before profit
