3 of us came to Koh Phangan in 2010/2011 and did our open water course with Sail Rock Divers, Chaloklum.
Our instructor Steve Goodwin was fantastic and made us feel welcomed and safe even though none of us had ever had a reg in our mouth before. We went straight into our advanced open water course as we enjoyed the site and staff's company so much.
Set in a quiet fishing village on the north side of the island it's the perfect get a way destination with beautiful beaches to relax on. The real winner was Sail Rock itself a fantastic dive site with Whale sharks spotted on a regular basis.
We have now come back for more of the same. The centre is larger now with on site accommodation and one of the nicest teams you could wish for.
Breakfast and lunch is served on the boat on the trips to the Rock.
The courses are run in the pool at first this allows confidence building, the groups are small enough that your not lost in the crowd.
I would recommend this resort to anyone in a heart beat
