We did the PADI open water course with no previous diving experience. Chaloklum diving school values small class sizes, consistency of instructors and demonstrate a great respect and love for the ocean. They are very safety conscious and although I was a bit nervous at the start, it was easy to relax when you know you are in such good... More

I had two great days out diving the the Chaloklum diving crew. Both days we visited Sail Rock. The first day I was solo and got buddied up with some other DMs and explored a little deeper. On day two we organised a baby sitter and my wife came out. The dive shop is easy to find and has everything... More

I did my EFR and RD courses in Koh Phangan and had just acquired some equipment from my uncle, who hadn't used it for over a year. I got it all serviced at Chaloklum Diving during my courses, and they had it ready for me in time for me to enjoy 4 fun dives before my holiday ended. The owner/technician... More

We chose Chaloklum diving after going on a dive trip with another dive school on the island . This dive centre is a five star rated Padi centre and an extremely professional company . The staff in the shop were very friendly and informative about the dive and assured us we would have a great experience with them. The dives... More

Thank you very much for your review - we're glad you enjoyed your experience with us - Sascha is a true professional as well as a nice human being! I am sorry about the food - but as you say, we were not diving with our own boat so I can only give a polite hint to the other dive... More

I took my Open Water Diver certificate at Chaloklum Diving and it was truly an amazing experience. The guys at the Diving centre were all super friendly and never afraid of small talk. The diving centre is calm and has a very beautiful beach just beside it, where all the "confined diving" exercises are made. The manager at the place,... More

We were looking for a diving school to get our OWD licence and were planning to go to Ko Tao, then we heard about Chaloklum Diving from an experienced diver who spoke highly of them.

The water was not clear to dive properly , and they have been fair enough to tell, and not just take us on the boat and let us dive with no joy. The shop is well located is a small bay, the road from Salad beach is a disaster, but from Thong Salad it is quite fast. Ask for Fred... More
