About Us – The Chaloklum Diving Team

Chaloklum Diving was founded almost 30 years ago by diving instructors Nick and Michael on Koh Phangan Island in the Gulf of Thailand, which at the time was still largely undiscovered by tourism, and was one of the first diving schools here.

After the worldwide pandemic and the sudden death of his business partner Michael, the diving school is still run by Nick.

On a smaller, personal scale, but with the same dedication to diving and the wonderful underwater world and the desire to make this world accessible to anyone who wants it, supported by his great and very experienced team.

What we believe in at Chaloklum Diving School

The select Chaloklum Diving team is made up of truly enthusiastic PADI professionals. They are mainly trained in our own dive school, and we all share a belief in providing enjoyable, high quality diving trips and dive courses.

Although we do have an exemplary safety record, it is good to know that we are a fully insured and licensed TAT (Tourist Authority of Thailand) dive centre.
We are supporters of the SSS Re-compression Network (with excellent hyperbaric facilities for Scuba divers on nearby Koh Samui), our diving school team are all first aid/O2 trained, and we are supporters of DAN (Divers Alert Network) Asia Pacific.

Small diver groups (max 4), genuine personal care, long scuba dives (up to 1 hr, diving tables and air supply permitting) and consistent safety standards means that our divers leave us happy and send their friends. We believe that although diving in large groups and making short dive trips may mean more profits for a dive centre (in the short term), it’s no fun for our divers or for students making diving courses.
