Bridge over the River Kwai Private Sunset / Morning Paddle

Enjoy a late afternoon private paddle (just you and your friends) along pristine, untouched waterway. Slow-moving and relaxing, however, this paddle is more challenging than a ninety minute taster (beginner's) session.  You will learn more skills and cover a greater distance (up to approximately 13 km). You will also find it quite a lot more tiring than a ninety minute session, so ensure that you are geared up, fit and in a great state of mind for the challenge !

Private 2 hour afternoon SUP class for all ages and levels

This is a private lesson for just you and your friends. You’ll be leaving from our base, where we will take you to the river. It’s for people who have never tried stand up paddling or for those who want a refresher course. Please arrive at our base fifteen minutes before the scheduled lesson start time (we can pick you up from your hotel for a small charge). We’ll talk you through using the board, keeping safe on the river and the basic SUP technique. We’ll show you how to get on and off the board and how to paddle, all on dry land. We’ll then get you onto the river with our instructor and you’ll be standing before you know it. When the lesson and is over, we’ll return you to the base. If you want a more challenging experience choose our 3 hour sunset paddle.

We were a family group with a 3 year old so we were initially anxious how we could manage, all being beginners, but Troy and the team instilled such confidence in our first trip that we rapidly booked again for another trip 3 weeks later. K.Fadel and K.Time were amazing with our daughter, keeping her fed, watered and stimulated throughout the paddles ensuring Troy could commit to instructing us adults and ensuring that we could concentrate on on our learning without worrying and with every confidence that she was safe. As well as the paddles we also went for a bike ride which was most enjoyable and relaxing. It was great to see a bit of the deeper country side. Again, my 3 year old daughter was catered for with a child seat and a driver (thanks Troy!). If you are considering an outdoors family activity I would recommend getting in touch with Troy as he can tailor the trips to your needs and he has great knowledge of the area and recommended some lovely accommodation for us.

Thank you for taking the time to write this review Mark. We are delighted that you valued the stand up paddleboarding and cycling experiences. As you now know, we love to take family groups and your family was no exception. Indeed, your 3 year old provided many fun moments and was such a positive and brave girl. We very much look forward to many future adventures and taking your skill set even further. 💯

We had an amazing time with Pep, our incredibly knowledgeable (and patient) guide on our 3.5 hour trip. The session, while tiring, was an incredible way to experience the river, and was a great way to learn the basics of stand up paddling, and basic river navigation, safety, and skills. While I have paddle boarded quite a few times, I was self-taught, and learned a lot of proper techniques that will really help me in the future. My partner was a first-timer and by the end, was better than I was, thanks to Pep's guidance. I would highly recommend this company, and activity to anyone wanting a unique (and physically stimulating) way to see Kanchanaburi. This company has options available for all abilities, and if we are able to return, will definitely be challenging ourselves to another route. The best part was finishing at the famous bridge just as the sun was setting. This is a memory I will never forget!

Awesome experience from start to finish! Must do!! After speaking to a friend and browsing the abundance of positive reviews and non-dual pricing, we decided to book ourselves onto one of their afternoon SUP tours. I can honestly state that this was one of the best experiences we encountered whilst in Kanchanaburi (and probably my best water adventure experience in Thailand)!! Admittedly, I was slightly nervous given my lack of experience however, this was short-lived thanks to our guide Troy making me feel straight at ease from the start. Troy began by teaching us some key SUP manoeuvres along with how best to navigate down the river (including a free geography lesson on the river and formation!). Throughout the journey, Troy taught us both basic and advanced skills (my friend was much more experienced than me) and was incredibly attentive in ensuring we were both safe at all times! Furthermore, Troy continued to answer any questions we had whilst on the SUPs. The views were exceptional throughout the journey and we even spotted some wildlife! Great day on the river and worth the adventure if only for this. Overall, we were glad to have experienced this adventure with Troy and were not disappointed at all!

Thank you very, very much for taking the time to write this comprehensive review. We are delighted that you enjoyed all of the learning of skills and river features and you've departed as a Stand Up Paddle boarder with river experience. You took in the great views and you've now got great memories to take with you - we would love to see you again sometime for our intermediate class, although you advanced rapidly in the beginner session. Well done and I hope you continue with the SUPing in the near future, wherever your journey takes you.

We booked an afternoon trip for a few hours with Troy to paddle along a very nice part of the river. Troy went above and beyond in regards to safety, professionalism and providing well-maintained SUP boards and paddles to us. On top of that, he also taught us several skills & manouvers which was huge bonus. I have gone on tours with other places in Kanchanaburi but SUP Hire Thailand Co. provides the best value for money + well customised trips with professional guidance. We had a great day out and would definitely go with this company again. Thank you!

A lovely opportunity to experience the sights and sounds of the river. Troy and his team cater for the novice and the experienced paddler in a professional and encouraging manner. Highly recommend you add this to your Kanchanaburi itinerary and if you have time, add some cycling in too. Wonderful!
