Koh Phangan; Where’s the rainy season?

November always used to be the start of the “rainy season”, ie big waves plus lots of rain & wind, meaning not a lot of scuba diving or snorkelling! OK, the vis dropped for a few days after black moon, but yesterday conditions at Sail Rock were fine again with the current mild. And this morning Chaloklum Bay is totally calm & the sun’s shining from a blue sky. The bull sharks are still about & our last whale shark visitation was a few days ago, so the Rock remains our prime dive destination, although it would be nice to make some scuba dives at the Marine Park...

Chaloklum/Koh Phangan Scuba Diving update, October 2012.

Post full moon party on Koh Phangan & a quiet month beckons; a great chance to get really personal Padi courses & enjoy peaceful dive sites! Sail Rock is still offering excellent scuba diving conditions & 2 days ago a fairly big whale shark, of the 5-6 metre variety made an appearance! Our last diving & snorkelling trip to Koh Tao was also fine, but we’re once again awaiting an update on conditions at the Marine Park. Not a lot of team news from the diving school, but we still seem to be eating out a lot & generally living the easy life so cannot complain! We had a...

Koh Phangan relaxes, but the diving’s still Great!

After a fairly hectic August it’s nice to relax a little as Chaloklum Village & the island quietens down. We’ve still been making regular diving trips to Sail Rock, where scuba dive conditions remain excellent & today we’ve gone to Koh Tao, diving & snorkelling at Shark Island & Laem Tian. The Marine Park hasn’t been special lately, which is a shame, but the vis at the dive sites around Koh Phangan remains thoroughly pleasant. Not a lot of team news from the diving school; we seem to be eating a lot of meals out & generally living a more easy life....

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 & 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 whaleshark; 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...
