About Paddle Asia - Private Day Tours
Paddle Asia is a small family-owned business specializing in small group self paddle kayaking, jungle survival, and outdoor adventure travel tours to Phang Nga Bay, Phang Nga Province, and Khao Sok National Park focusing on getting away from other visitors. Paddle Asia deals directly with our guests. We don't go through agents. We deal directly with you! Paddle Asia uses proper sit-inside kayaks. It is our mission to offer you something completely different from what other tour operators in the region offer. Your eco adventure tour is designed for first-time paddlers and novice travelers. Families with children are more than welcome! Experienced kayakers and adventurers are, of course, also welcome. All staff are certified to international first aid and safety standards.

Which trip interests you? Khao Sok is very, very easy paddling. Phang Nga Bay can be a bit more challenging. We don't really have an age requirement as children's abilities vary so greatly. I hope this helped.
