Marine Life Identification Project

The Dive Inn Scuba Diving School Koh Phangan Thailand

The variety of species that live within the Southern Gulf of Thailand is astounding. In an attempt to identify as many as possible, we have compiled a huge collection of photographs and descriptions of many of the species found here. View our Local Marine Life Identification Gallery to read more and possibly help us identify some unidentified species.


Based at the north of the island, in the fishing village of Chaloklum, The Dive Inn is one of the longest established dive centres on Koh Pha-Ngan. Our northern location means we are ideally placed for access to both the prime local reefs, as well as the main off-shore dive sites such as Sail Rock and Koh Tao.

The Dive Inn offers small groups, personal attention, quality service, professional and unbiased advice and the most experienced and qualified staff on the island. How do we do it? Simple... Diving is fun and we love it, so let us share our passion for the underwater world and change your life...!!

We are totally committed to a customer-focused approach to the way we do business, rather than the impersonal “student factories” encountered on neighbouring islands. Whether learning to dive, continuing to dive, or even joining us on a snorkelling trip, we shall endeavour to make your time with us one of the most memorable of your trip.

In line with our customer-focused approach, we have ensured that our staff are amongst the most experienced, dedicated and enthusiastic on Koh Pha-Ngan. Having amassed literally thousands of dives and diver certifications in local waters, our staff also possess vast knowledge of all the main dive sites and marine life in the area. These dedicated professionals are long-term, resident divers who are always available to answer your questions in a courteous and friendly manner, whilst offering you the very best in service and advice at all times.
“Our aim is to provide all of our customers complete satisfaction, at all times, and accept nothing less…”
