Nick & Michael opened Chaloklum Diving in 1995 after falling in love with Koh Phangan & the beautiful seas around it. We started off as a 2 man operation, diving off a rather quieter, more peaceful island from the beach or by longtail boat & the school has grown steadily since then.
Both of us have been PADI instructors for 20+ years and our motivation is still a passion for diving & teaching it to others. The Chaloklum Diving team is mainly made up of professionals trained by us, but everyone shares our belief in quality diving.
Although we do have an unbroken safety record, it is good to know that we are a fully insured & licensed TAT (Tourist Authority of Thailand) operation. We are affiliated to the SSS Recompression Network (with excellent hyperbaric facilities on nearby Koh Samui), our team are all first aid/O2 trained & we are sponsors of DAN (Divers Alert Network) Asia Pacific.
