Phang Nga Bay sea kayaking adventure eco tours
In spite of Phang Nga Bay's popularity, it is still fairly easy to go kayaking around certain parts of the bay without seeing other tour groups. PaddleAsia specializes in getting away from other travelers. Our goal is to give you an intimate experience with Nature and to provide you with the best cultural experiences as well. Phang Nga Bay is perfectly suited to offer both.
PaddleAsia is an expedition tour operator, but we do offer day trips in Phang Nga Bay on request.We also offer a mountain biking day trip on Koh Yao Noi in Phang Nga Bay that is suitable for just about everyone. More challenging cycling trips are also available.
We offer an introduction to jungle survival day trip on Phuket too.
Rock Climbing and Mountain Climbing Tours
PaddleAsia offers rock climbing as part of a Phang Nga Bay tour (can be added to your paddling trip) or as something completely separate. There are some wonderful bolted rock climbing routes on Koh Yao Noi and elsewhere in the bay. Traditional climbing and aid climbing is also available.
Shorter Climbing Trips (Climbing Day Trip from Phuket)
If you have limited time and want to get away for a quick rock climbing day trip or two-day trip, we offer a very nice trip to a small park by Phang Nga Town. There are lots of bolted routes and enough different cliffs to always be able to climb in the shade. If you choose the two-day option, you will spend the night at a nice air-conditioned guesthouse and be treated to some superb Thai cuisine at a riverside restaurant.
If you're already in Phuket or Krabi and need to get away from the crowds, this is the perfect opportunity.
