Booked a private snorkelling tour for me and two friends whilst we was visiting Koh Tao. Tobin replied immediately and arranged for our collection from the accommodation to the boat . Everything was organised perfectly . Our tour contained some great snorkelling spots and the chance to see the best nature has to offer such as reef sharks and giant turtles . The locations where we snorkelled were remote and exclusive on many occasions. Tobin is a passionate guy about nature and knowledgeable on the surrounding area and environment. Rock formations even !!! (Which was also interesting ! ) In summary. Our expectations were exceeded on this tour , the boat was pure luxury for the 3 friends plus Tobin is a top guy . If you are considering booking with him you will not be disappointed!!

My partner and I visited from England and booked a snorkeling trip with extreme acadamy, as we wanted a personalised and luxury trip which was tailored to our preferences e.g. locations and timings. What we received was nothing less than perfect. Tobin (the owner of the company) is a really relaxed and charismatic man who talked us through different options and potential places to visit whilst we sat in his air conditioned centrally located office. On the day, we were running late which of course was no problem. Arriving at the boat for the day, Tobin put some music on and we set off to several different snorkeling spots. Tobins experience shows throughout the trip which ranged from knowing when to be more attentive (my partner was nervous at first) and knowing when to back off and leave a couple to spend time together. We booked half a day which was a good amount time. We certainly saw a lot of incredible fish and had plenty of time to chill out in peace and take in the views of koh Tao. Tobin took a camera and was more than happy to take pictures and send them on to us. I go on a lot of private and scheduled trips in different countries. Most of which over promise, have fancy uniforms and pushy sales. This is a completely different experience which is an end to end relaxing and well put together memorable event.

Second time My Partner and I have been out with Tobin, both times were breathtaking.Tobin has 10 years experience on the island and his awesome boat that has plenty of shade and a wicked stereo. Allways giving plenty of information through the day and making sure we go and see all the epic fish and stunning bays. On the 10/9/2019 I had planned with Tobin to hire his boat for half the day and propose to my partner. Tobin had organised our do so perfectly and absolutely faultless he is truly a perfectionist and runs a very professional business. Cheers Tobin from Extreme Academy Koh Tao for the boat cruise . Absolute legend and recommend him to anyone heading here.

After my first trip to Thailand when I first met Tobin and went out snorkelling with Extreme Academy-I was hooked. On my list of things to do when visiting Thailand, at the top was to go back out to Koh Tao specifically for the snorkelling and diving and to try and relive the experience I had a couple of years ago. Joined by Tobin and Ruter, my partner and I booked a half day snorkelling for just the 2 of us to avoid a messy trip with 50-60 people. We specifically wanted a more personal experience, which is exactly what we got. My partner is not a confident swimmer and I would have gone as far as to say she was scared/apprehensive of the trip we had planned. Tobin and Ruter went well out of their way to reassure her and guide her hand in hand throughout the entire experience. From the moment we got on the boat to the moment we got in the water they walked her through each step until she was relaxed and confident enough to take control. It was at this point you could see that the mind blowing experience she was promised began to make sense to her and she could concentrate on what was around and below her. I cannot describe the passion that Tobin and Ruter have for the ocean, and part of the reason I enjoyed it so much the first time is that you really buy into the excitement and knowledge that radiates from them. When they explain how each piece of the puzzle fits together to create the massively complex ecosystem you are swimming in-it’s a nice touch and a humbling experience. If you want a more personal touch and to avoid the large trips which ultimately disturb the wildlife you pay to try and see, contact Extreme Academy to tailor your own day out. The wildlife changes in each area which is also seasonal, so why visit the same spot everyone else is when you could specifically chase the experience you want. Look forward to seeing you again, Kris
