adventure meets luxury

Our exploration of Southern Thailand will include stays in Bangkok, Railay Beach and Koh Lanta. We will see a lot and bounce around a lot stopping just long enough in each location to experience the best features of the area. You may not remember where we are going tomorrow or where we just came from but that is why you have us! We have all of the logistics planned out so you can spend more time with your feet in the sand and less time planning how to get there. We have also planned out our days so there is plenty of time for rest and relaxation between adventures and travel. The last few days of our trip will be spent in a blissful recovery state on quiet Koh Lanta giving you hours upon hours to stare at the ocean, nap in a hammock and fill your memory bank full of the beauty of Thailand.

featured activities 

Thailand is an outdoor lovers paradise. In between boat rides to stunning locations, amazing dinners together at sunset and quiet mornings next to the ocean, our days are full of a large variety of wild adventures. Paddling in dreamy water is just the beginning. Here is a taste of what the rest of your days will be filled with.


Private Chartered Boat Tour of Hong Islands- We will take a private chartered boat for a full day tour of the Hong islands off the coast of Krabi. After exploring, swimming, snorkeling and paddling in hidden lagoons and beaches, our guides cook us a BBQ feast on the shores of the last island just as the sun begins to set. It's amazing!


Private Chartered Boat Tour of Koh Rok - Toward the end of our adventure we will charter another private boat and take you to snorkeling dreamland ....Koh Rok. This full day experience is relaxing yet exhilarating. It's the perfect way to spend one of your last days in paradise!


Rock Climbing Railay Beach - Railay beach is down right beautiful and we will see parts of it only accessible through our special local connections. There are many options for various skill levels so the beginner can try your hand on a simple assent while the more adventurous can take on assents to top peaks sure to challenge any climber. After getting our feet under us and learning the basics we will hike into a cave and climb up to an overlook of iconic Railay Beach. Get your camera ready! What's next is about to be one of the coolest experiences of your life! See pictures below. For those not wanting to rock climb, Railay beach is a destination in itself and you can choose to relax, paddle and soak it up in any form you like. Or ...do it all!


Stand Up Paddle Heaven - You know those iconic cliffs and emerald green waters you see all over the internet? WE WILL PADDLE THEM! We have two amazing tours planned for you that feature the best of Thailand. Ones that you will remember for a lifetime. All tours are friendly for ANY level of paddler. Heck we can even teach you how to paddle for the first time in Thailand!!

Scooter Tour - When in Thailand you MUST do as the locals do and take a scooter for a spin. Riding scooters is the standard means of transportation in Thailand. In some places such as Bangkok it's pure madness. However in the right location it's pure fun and relaxing. During our visit to the low key island of Koh Lanta we will grab some scooters of our own and tour the best of the island including secluded cafes on the beach, stunning overlooks and remote beaches. Koh Lanta is the perfect place to take in a scooter ride as the traffic levels are minimal and views are amazing.

Moto Tour - During an Optional add on during our trip you can learn to ride a motorcycle on an empty beach in Koh lanta. With both Braden and a local guide showing you the ropes, or how to ride a wheelie, experience more of Koh Lanta then most people do.

Organized Yet Free - These planned activities are just the tip of the iceberg. You will have a chance to experience so much more of Thailand. Shop and eat at local markets, dine on the amazing street food, get a Thai massage on the beach, take a relaxing paddle on your own, hike a mountain for sunset or sunrise, try the local Thai coffee or breakfast porridge, participate in a beach clean up, take a yoga class, take a cooking class or go full wild and experience the famous lady boy cabaret. It's your vacation! Create the magic that best suits you!
