No previous experience is necessary, and with the right timing most beginner 'flyers' are able to make a mid-air catch in just one lesson. Full safety equipment and instruction is provided by our professional team of 3 staff, and we cater for almost all abilities and ages - from 6 to 76 so far! Whether you're taking a 'try fly' at one of our 90minute lessons, or signing up for one of our fun-filled three, five or ten day packages, our crew of instructors and 'catchers' will build up your knowledge and skills step by step, allowing you to progress at your own pace. You'll learn positions and tricks on our ground level practice bar, and see aerial demo's from one of our team before you have a go at mastering the timing in mid-air yourself. You'll find yourself pulling off a back flip dismount on your first attempt, and at the end of your session you can go for a mid-air catch - 70% of our students manage it in just one lesson! So what are you waiting for? Roll up, roll up, and join the Koh Tao circus! « less

This experience was simply amazing. The school is run very, very well. Gemma is a charismatic and enthusiastic tutor who genuinely seems to want you to succeed. The value for money is fantastic and the team constantly encourage you to push yourself a little further which is great. Also the transition and the depth you get yourself into in the... More

I tried flying trapeze after my friend suggested I would like it and I wasn't disappointed. The team are very friendly, helpful and encouraging and I always felt totally relaxed and safe while flying. It's really good fun and definitely should be on your to-do list on a visit to Koh Tao.

We were wrapping up out time at Koh Tao and we got the idea in our head to do some flying trapeze - thought it would be interesting. In truth, it was much more that that - it was incredible! Heart pounding at the top of the trapeze while the super-friendly staff talk you through everything. The wind in your... More

Had an amazing time at the Flying Trapeze Adventures in Koh Tao! Gemma was a really great instructor and in just one lesson I was able to make a catch! I had to change my plans a couple times and each time I wrote to them they were very accommodating and friendly. I would definitely recommend Flying Trapeze Adventures to... More

When I was looking through all of the activities to do throughout my time in Thailand (which was about six months), trapeze was one of the most attractive, and Flying Trapeze Adventures did not disappoint! We, my boyfriend and I, got there in the late afternoon, right as the sun was going down. Our instructor, Gemma, and the rest of... More

Thank you so much for your wonderful review. We are very proud to be able to contribute such a positive memory for you two. I hope you managed to get some good snaps and videos of your experience. Can't beat a sunset back drop, flying through the palm trees in silhouette. We also really enjoy the small class size. We... More

I came with little knowledge of what it takes to do trapeze, and after overcoming my fears, blisters on hands and fatigue in the arms, I made it the completion of the first lesson. What a rush of blood to the head! The staff is very friendly, professional and supportive - you will have a great time! Highly recommended.

Thank you and congratulations on successfully completing the first phase of flying trapeze! So much more to learn, I hope you get the chance to do it again some day. I am sure your muscles felt the effects for a few days after. It certainly is a fun way to get a good work out in when on a tropical... More

First off I am petrified of heights and a bit of a wuss so getting up the ladder was hard enough! The team (Keli, Gemma and Karl) were awesome and so supportive and really gave step by step directions and pointers! It was so fun flying through the air and landing down in the net! Would love to have done... More

Thank you for your review. A very successful catch indeed. Team Canada up in the air! Like many of our students that have a natural fear of heights, after that first jump and realising what you can achieve, you progressed rapidly, learning the timing to complete everything in just 1 lesson. Well done. Best regards from your friends old and... More

My third time to Ko Tao,and I suddenly saw a sign for trapeze! Wow, can I actually do that here? Told my friends about it,and they were all in. Had the best time! (even though I didn`t manage to do it that well...) Will absolutely do it again! And the funniest feeling ever for the following 2-3 days!

I've always wanted to try this kind of trapeze action. In one of the island magazines from Koh Tao I read about it being offered here. I ended up extending my stay so I could do it – which I didn’t regret! It was a fantastic experience! I had my appointment shortly before sunset and being there between palm trees... More
