"Welcome to Chaloklum Diving, Koh Phangan, Thailand."

We offer personal PADI dive courses, luxury SCUBA diving and snorkelling trips, with 18 years reputation for quality and high standards. We work only with small groups of divers and take enough time to enjoy long, relaxed fun dives or to complete your dive training properly.

Marine Park – Dive and Snorkel

“Mu Koh Angthong” features a wide range of underwater life, plus lots of interesting scenery, on a good variety of quiet dive sites on the North tip of the Marine National Park. Probably the best destination for snorkellers too. A 2+ hour trip takes you to the northern tip of this chain of islands, and there are a number of different spots to dive. This area remains our personal favourite, with the best range of fish and most other interesting stuff we’ve experienced in our years of diving in the Gulf of Thailand. Depths from nice and shallow to 25m.

About Us – the Dive Team

Greetings from Nick and Michael! We opened Chaloklum Diving School on Koh Phangan way back in 1995, a year or so after falling under the spell of the island and the clear, warm waters in the Gulf of Thailand. We started off as a two man dive shop doing it all ourselves; scuba diving and snorkelling from the beach or by local longtail boat, and teaching our PADI diving courses without modern conveniences such as DVD’s or aircon. Needless to say the diving school (and Koh Phangan) has become a lot more civilised since then, but our high standards remain the same!

3 Pinnacles – a Dive Special

The 3 Pinnacles Dive Trip is one of our favourite diving expeditions, visiting some of the finest pinnacle scuba dives in the Gulf of Thailand! On this special dive trip, we usually start at Southwest Pinnacles, then go up to Chumphon Pinnacles and finish with an afternoon dive at Sail Rock. These are three of the very best dive sites in the Koh Phangan and Koh Tao area, offering the best chance of diving with those wonderful whale sharks. Their appearance is not guaranteed and is rarely as often as we would like, but whale sharks or not, this dive trip is surely unforgettable!
