By its nature, a whole day paddling experience is more challenging due to the amount of time you will be on the board. Typically, we will paddle for around five or six hours per day, depending on river flow and weather conditions.
A one day expedition will cover around 20 km. We will leave early in the morning and stop for lunch and a good rest during the hottest part of the day. We’ll conclude the day with another 2-3 hours paddling. There will be plenty of rest stops along the way. That’s part of the beauty about paddling on the river – even when you stop for a break, the river continues to carry you onward!
This paddle is not suitable for complete beginners and if you have not done our beginner’s lesson, we will need you to first demonstrate some basic paddling skills, like standing, paddling straight, turning and paddling against the slow flow of the River Kwai.
We can take groups of up to eight people with one instructor.
Contact us to arrange this.
What to bring?
Bring board shorts or just PE shorts and a T-shirt or long sleeved shirt. Also a pair of shoes or flip-flops that you don’t mind getting wet. Slap on a hat and slop on some sun cream and you’ll be good to go. Bring a towel as there is a chance you will get wet. Bring a water bottle so you can take a drink and maybe a snack. A dry bag is useful for phones and wallet – if you don’t have one, we have them in our shop at the base.
We’ll supply a personal flotation device and leash for safety, and of course a suitably sized board and paddle ready to go.
