Even though Koh Tao is called the diving paradise, there are also many diving schools on Koh Phangan that go to diving spots around the island. Also the Marine Park is at all Koh Phangan Diving Schools on the program.
The Chaloklam Diving School was opened over 15 years ago, in the year 1995. The diving school was founded in the north of the island by Michael and Nick, who fell in love with the blue and warm waters of the Gulf of Thailand.
At first it all started just as a couple - with dives and snorkeling trips from land, or with longtail boats.
