Chaloklum Diving, Koh Phangan Update, late August 2012…

August has been a busy scuba diving month on Koh Phangan so far, with Sail Rock getting a lot of attention due to its new residents. Please let’s not forget that there’s a whole lot more to the Rock than just bull sharks! And there are other fine dive (& better snorkelling) destinations available in the Gulf of Thailand; we are trying to promote diving trips to Koh Tao dive sites & the lovely Ang Thong Marine Park, so that we are not targeting Sail Rock every day! All’s good at the diving school, but we’ve been a little short on staff & it’s been...

August has started and the Diving’s good!

Apologies for the delayed Koh Phangan diving update, Chaloklum style, but we’ve been working/diving quite hard for a (welcome) change! A bunch of Padi Open Water Diver courses, a busy diving boat & an island that’s close to full (what with the full moon party & all) has kept us thoroughly entertained. Thankfully Sail Rock has had consistently good conditions, regular bull shark sightings plus the odd Whale Shark; Michael & his lucky student started their first dive yesterday with one. Most of our dive sites should offer good diving conditions with the current fine...

Diving Trips to the Marine Park tomorrow and Koh Tao on Friday?..

Diving Trips to the Marine Park tomorrow and Koh Tao on Friday?..

Time to go to some different diving & snorkelling destinations, much as we love Sail Rock! And it looks like we can expect good conditions at most dive sites with the prevailing calm sunny weather (but is that thermocline still there on the HMS Satakut wreck?). Anyway long may it last! Things are reasonably quiet on the diving school front, without a lot of Padi course action except, of course, for DMT Dave’s just-about-finished Divemaster training. But Koh Phangan is definitely getting a little more lively now, with a few of our scuba diving regulars back on the island (& so...

June on Koh Phangan is Sunny, Hot and Peaceful.

Again we’re back to the hot sunny days… Fine scuba diving conditions at Sail Rock, we gather that Koh Tao is good & we’re waiting for news from any dive trips to the Marine Park. It’s been a little choppy on our local dive sites on the West coast of Koh Phangan, but nice enough vis once you’re diving. Michi arrived back at the dive centre yesterday, 12 days early (the German summer was getting a bit too much!) & an old friend of the diving school (& Divemaster for us 8 years ago), Eric, is back for a break from the computer business in Phuket....

Nice weather on Koh Phangan again and a fine diving trip to Sail Rock.

Nice weather on Koh Phangan again and a fine diving trip to Sail Rock.

We’ve had a few days of uncharacteristically unpleasant weather (yes, it happens even in paradise); such that we’ve had to advise our divers to wait (unlike certain other schools!). Well you can see from the photo above that we’re making diving trips again, the sun’s back with us, & a call just received from Mr G at Sail Rock advises that the scuba diving’s still fine there too. Hopefully the local vis is clearing too (the boss wants to take some photo’s!). We’re looking forward to a few friends returning this month; confirmed so far is Mr....
