Thailand Adventure Tours - Sea Canoeing, Kayaking, Wildlife Tours
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.
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 max is eight.
Our kayaking tours are designed for first-time paddlers and
novice travelers. Children are more than welcome!
Experienced paddlers are also very welcome.
Paddle Asia uses traditional sit-inside kayaks (both single and two-person 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!

Self Paddle Kayaking Trips
The Phang Nga Bay self paddle sea kayaking tour is a very easy trip that is suitable for almost anyone. Our Khao Sok National Park jungle kayaking and hiking tour is also very easy. You will spend a lot of time just sitting in your touring kayak watching amazing wildlife.
Both of these tours offer stunning limestone karst topography and breathtaking scenery.
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.
Being highly certified through many international safety organizations, Paddle Asia is one of the most safety-conscious tour companies in Thailand.

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