4 day sea kayaking expedition

This expedition encompasses all the near islands off the south coast of Koh Chang, including the stunning islands including Koh Bai Dang, Koh Ngam, Koh Wai, Koh Massi Yai, Koh Lao Nai.

The reward for paddling up to 20Km a day is a journey through short open water stretches, a network of small caves accessed at high tide, a trip to Secret Beach that can only be reached by boat and unique perspective of Koh Chang’s rocky cliffs.

Although this expedition is only four days in duration we expect to cover at least 20km per day and so good physical fitness and experience of journeying in kayaks or canoes is a must.

View Itinerary

All Expeditions begin with a Familiarisation Day

Day 1

Bang Bao – Koh Klum – Koh Wai = 18 km

Bang Bao is a beach on the south coast of Koh Chang. It is the starting point for all of our multi-day expeditions. From the beach we are rewarded a panoramic view of the islands that await us. Once we have packed our kayaks and orientated ourselves we set out for Koh Klum, an open water crossing of 7km. This is a challenging start but none the less it is very achievable. Before you know it, the journey to first of the numerous islands has been achieved.

Having eaten and had a swim we continue our journey to Koh Wai. The crossing to Koh Wai is only 4km and is done in a short time. On arriving we bear left along the north coast, this stretch gives us much to enjoy – the aptly named ‘Paradise Beach’ with snorkelling, wonderful coffee and the beach isn’t bad either. Our next destination on Koh Wai is one of the best snorkelling spots in the whole park. From this point we have just 2km to our resort for the night, Koh Wai Beach Resort with hot water, AC, and Wi-Fi facilities. Khun Pan, the owner, is the host with most.

Day 2

Koh Wai – Koh Lao Nai – Salak Phet

In our opinion this is one of the best days paddling on any of our trips. There is a lot of interest throughout, short open water crossings, many Islands, snorkelling, ample play areas to develop your kayaking skills, nice beaches and a beautiful end resort.

Setting out from Koh Wai Beach resort, we turn right and kayak along the south coast of Koh Wai, kayaking fun.  Rock hopping is the order of the morning.  After rounding the western tip of Koh Wai we head for a set of three stunning Islands, Koh Lao Nai is our destination for lunch and snorkelling.  The final leg affords us the opportunity to Island hop for the last 7 km, to our nights accommodation.

Day 3

Salak Phet – Bang Bao 14Km

With Koh Chang shadowing over us, we begin our journey out of Salak Phet heading due south contouring the coast of Koh Chang with possibilities to snorkel, explore or just lay back and enjoy the sun. Lunch will be on Klong Koi Beach.  A total of 14km guides us along the south coast of Koh Chang where we can visit Secret Beach, only accessible by boat. This evening is spent in the delightful bustling fishing village of Bang Bao, at Bang Bao Paradise Home Stay.

Day 4

Koh Chang – West Coast = 14.5 km

We begin our day in a unique way by dropping straight from our beds into our boats (not really). The west coast of Koh Chang has some of the most breathtaking rock formations in the National Park. With 8 Km of inaccessible coastline ahead, our journey up the west coast offers us ample opportunity to express ourselves. Gliding between rocks, carving turns testing our skills against the waves, there are challenges for all abilities during this first section of the day. Playing in and with both the conditions and the environment we find ourselves in, is what kayaking is all about.

Alas the excitement ends as we make our way around, Bailan Bay headland, one last flurry of interest presents itself as there are several shallow caves that have extensive bat populations. Lunch on Lonely Beach, is our next port of call.

The remaining 3km back to The Emerald Cove offers us a time to reflect on our journey and revel in our achievement.
