Coastal Jungle Survival Training
What would you do if you were stranded on a deserted island after a shipwreck or plane crash? Do you have the skills necessary to build a fire, a shelter, and to find food?
On this coastal survival course, you will be taken to a remote beach in Phang Nga Bay with your survival instructor. You will have a small survival kit that contains all of the absolute necessities to both survive and to be rescued.
This is a two-day survival course designed to teach you self-reliance through a positive relationship with the natural setting. You'll learn how to get along with what Nature has to offer.
Life is full of risks. Which ones are acceptable in a survival situation and which ones should be avoided? Survival mistakes tend to follow patterns. You will learn how to avoid the most common mistakes in survival situations. Your most important asset is your mind. A big survival kit with everything imaginable is nice, but in a true survival situation, you are often left with almost nothing. You will learn to tap into your survivor's mentality... you will find your primitive survival mind.
Coastal Survival Training
The terrain is rugged, uncomfortable and challenging. The beach is small and the jungle is thick. You are not expected to have to put up with biting insects or to sleep on the ground, but you will be uncomfortable at times most likely.
You will receive survival kit and a backpack. The survival kit contains everything you will need to survive including (but not limited to) fire-making tools, Water purification tablets, snare wire, fishing hooks and line, a compass, signaling mirror, plastic sheet and a knife.
The backpack will contain a small shelter, bedding, a canteen, food, insect repellent, and other items to make camping more comfortable. Although you will learn how to build a basic jungle shelter, you won't have to spend the night in it. As far as picking wild edible plants go, we would not pick any plant that is uncommon or rare. Rare plants will be pointed out, but not eaten. In other words, we'd only sample plants that are very common and that are capable of rapid regrowth. Luckily for you, there are many plants that fall into this last category. You'll get to eat some food directly from this tropical jungle. We do not kill any animals on this course. You will learn how to trap animals, but you will not actually do it.
Coastal survival training courses address the following:
Sea survival kit items
Water (avoiding dehydration is your #1 priority)
Finding your way back

Alternative Jungle Survival Destination
You can choose from Khao Sok National Park whereby kayaking is included in the course. This is a comfortable way for you to see the jungle and experience one of the nicest national parks in SE Asia.
If you're on a budget, you can choose a two-day budget jungle survival course in Phang Nga Province. This is mountainous terrain and rather challenging. This course along with the Phang Nga Bay course can be combined to get you ready for both of these very different habitats.
