August means great SCUBA Diving in the Gulf of Thailand!

PADI Open Water Diver Course for family Klose with Chaloklum DivingGreetings 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 diving school team, Monsieur Oliver, who is helping out with our French PADI courses in a most enthusiastic manner. Today on Koh Phangan Michi is enjoying shallow water training with family Klose (see photo), Shane is starting an Open Water diver course, and Michael is getting some exercise diving off the beach at Mae Haad and Koh Ma.
The rest of our Instructors and Divemasters are out on a trip to the Marine Park with a bunch of lucky folks – discovering scuba diving, fun diving and snorkelling – while Nick sits, jealous, writing this diving blog from the dive shop in Chaloklum – c’est la vie!
