P-Gaan

Boat Captain

P Gaan is originally from mainland Thailand but moved to Koh Tao to work in the bustling dive industry – a welcome change from the long overnight shifts operating a fishing trawler in his previous job.

P Gaan keeps our smaller boat, the MV Pete McCarthy, shipshape and tidy, and is always on hand to help our divers if they need assistance exiting and entering the boat. He loves cooking, and likes his food extra spicy, so it’s never a good idea to sneak a taste of his lunch! He speaks only a little English, but we think (actually scrap that, we know!) he understands more than he lets on, so beware! ;)

Together with P Dong, P Gaan ensures that both of our main dive vessels provide a safe and comfortable journey for all of our guests.
