Thailand Adventure Tours - Sea Canoeing, Kayak & Wildlife Tours

Photos on our facebook page are updated on a fairly daily basis.

Kayaking in Phang Nga Bay Phuket Paddle Asia specializes in intimate small group Phang Nga Bay sea kayaking, Khao Sok jungle kayaking, jungle trekking, jungle survival, bushcraft (camping skills), coastal survival, mountain biking, and outdoor adventure travel tours to remote and unspoiled destinations in Southern Thailand.

It is our mission to offer you something completely different from what other tour operators in the region offer. We only run small group tours! Most tours are two to four guests. Our max is eight.

Our kayaking tours are designed for first-time paddlers and novice travelers. Children are more than welcome!

Experienced kayakers and sports persons are, of course, very welcome.

You paddle your own proper sit-inside kayak. All of our kayaking trips are self paddle kayaking trips.

We have a large fleet of both single and two-person (double) sit-inside kayaks.

Immerse yourself in natural beauty via kayaking or one of our other outdoor programs. We are dedicated wildlife, bird, and nature lovers. Frequently, our Khao Sok tours include sightings of rare or endangered species such as Sun Bears, Malayan Tapirs, Serows, and wild Elephants; always a delight to our guests and as well as our guides.

Although our main business is running multi-day adventures, we do off a unique Phang Nga Bay kayaking day trip that is different from all tour operators.

kayaking Khao Sok National Park Paddle Asia uses traditional sit-inside kayaks instead of sit-on-tops or inflatables canoes. Traditional kayaks are perfectly suitable for first-timers and beginners. Yes, you can paddle a real kayak, it is easy!

Should you prefer, we also offer land-based trekking, jungle survival, bushcraft, mountain biking, and tropical mountain climbing. You can participate in our jungle survival training courses in Khao Sok and/or Phang Nga Province.

Phang Nga Province is a wonderful destination that is only an hour north of Phuket. The hiking trails are bountiful! Going completely off-trail is also an option.

Dave was the jungle survival consultant for two episodes of the Discovery Channel's "Dual Survival" program as well as the BBC "The Travel Show".

Our Koh Yao Noi mountain biking day trip is a wonderful way to experience this culturally intact island in a healthy, low-impact manner.

Educational Programs for International Schools

Paddle Asia's offers educational school programs. We have being operating school group student study tours, both the Duke of Edinburgh trips and other award schemes, since 2003.

Self Paddle Kayaking Trips

The highlight of what we provide, our Khao Sok National Park jungle kayaking and hiking tour is very easy.You will spend a lot of time just sitting in your touring kayak watching monkeys, gibbons, various mammals (including wild elephants), hornbills, and other birds.

The Phang Nga Bay self paddle sea kayaking tour is another very easy trip.
