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

Big cloud sat on Anthong National Marine Park, ThailandChaloklum 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 Instructor Michi is doing the same in a few days.

Also, sadly, our latest PADI Divemaster ex-trainee, Ms Coline, is moving on to Australia to delight the diving populace down under as planned, although we have a suspicion (and a hope) that this is not the last that we will see of her… Finally, once again, it’s cheerio to our best SCUBA Diving friends and supporters, Angie and Heinz – leaving tomorrow – thanks and best wishes as ever.

BUT the dive centre will most decidedly remain open – we continue to have bookings for PADI courses and diving trips over the forthcoming weeks – so it’s diving and snorkelling business as usual, albeit in a slightly lower gear…
