Overview
With Paddle Phuket you get to see a side of Phuket that not many tourists get to see. Tan is a very personable guide and enjoys sharing details of his culture and history with guests, often stopping along the way to explain farming techniques or points of interest. The tours are very flexible and Tan is great at tailoring the trip to the customers preference, rather than following a set itinerary. Get out and about amongst nature, try something new and have special memories to take home from your holiday!

Gently floating through the mangroves on the quiet side of Phuket island is a lovely way to experience the water and Thailand away from the tourists. You don't have to be an experience paddle boarder, or very fit (although it does get tiring!). It's very...More
