Phuket Thailand Kayaking Adventure Tours - Sea Canoeing, Survival Courses, Hiking Tours

Paddle Asia specializes in intimate small group Phang Nga Bay kayaking tours.

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

We specialize in Khao Sok jungle hiking, jungle trekking in Phang Nga Province, jungle survival, and bushcraft (camping skills).

Check out our Coastal survival course held on a small island in stunning Phang Nga Bay.

Check out our rave reviews on Trip Advisor.

Photos on our Facebook page are updated on regular basis.

Our self-paddling kayak tours are designed for first-time paddlers and novice travelers. Children are more than welcome!  Experienced paddlers are, of course, also very welcome.

Paddle Asia uses traditional sit-inside kayaks (both single and two-person kayaks) instead of sit-on-tops or inflatables canoes.

Sit-inside kayaks are perfectly suitable for first-timers and beginners. They are more stable, more comfortable, and more efficient than sit-on-top kayaks.

Self Paddle Kayaking Tours

One of our most popular tours is our unique Phang Nga Bay kayaking day trip It is different from all tour operators.

Our multi-day Phang Nga Bay self paddle sea kayaking tour is a very easy trip that is suitable for almost anyone.

Our multi-day Phang Nga Province, Phang Nga Bay coastal survival, and Khao Sok National Park jungle hiking and survival courses are also sutitable for beginners and up.

We do not offer a day trip to Khao Sok.

Both of these tours offer stunning limestone karst cliff topography and breathtaking scenery.

Being highly certified through many international safety organizations, Paddle Asia is one of the most safety-conscious tour companies in Thailand.

Trekking and Jungle Survival Trips

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 in 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".

Mountain biking day trip on Koh Yao Noi

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