September is PADI Debris Month of Action on Koh Phangan !

Koh Phangan reef cleaning circa 2010 from Chaloklum Diving, Thailand.We have not finalised the date (we’ll post it on Facebook as soon as we know), but later this month we will be mobilising the Chaloklum Diving boat for a day of reef cleaning around Koh Phangan – likely dive sites include Koh Ma and Kong Yai (“Rock Point”) – PADI professionals and divers with at least Advanced Open Water certification or 20+ dives are most welcome to join us for free.
Otherwise the good news is that we’ve 15+ metre vis and negligible current at Sail Rock again, as well as a whale shark 2 days ago. Hopefully Koh Tao is clearing up too, as we wait for a report on Anthong Marine Park conditions…
As a not-so-busy August is over, the diving school team is thinning out for a hopefully not-so-low season, with Mr Lance finally departing for the wilds of Mongolia and Guy off to autumn in Switzerland. But life is never dull at the dive centre – Michi’s teaching a German Advanced course, Gavin should be back to his long running PADI Open Water Diver course with Maz, and Angie’s back – we’re trying to get Michael to join her for a fun dive at Sail Rock before Heinz gets to Koh Phangan!

And our Marine Life Directory should be entering another small growth phase, with a bunch of new photos due for upload. We’ve also realised that the the crustaceans section is wrongly labelled but can’t restructure it without changing all the URL’s – Oh the delights of technology!
