This day is all about getting to know each other (expedition participants and your guide) and all the equipment we will be using. We meet in our office at The Emerald Cove, Klong Prao, at 12 noon. At this point we discuss the route and complete paperwork, such as medical/contact forms and answer any questions our customers have.
We go our separate ways for lunch and for you to check into your hotel for the night, which is a short distance away.
We meet up again at 3pm. This session is about getting out onto the water and introducing you to our safety procedures and the boats. We fit each person to a boat that is suitable to their height and weight and then get onto the water. We use this time on the water to assess customer ability and give input to improve forward paddling skills. After this session your boat will be fitted to you and ready to go in the morning.
The ‘Familiarisation Day’ is included within the identified dates for the expedition, and is held on the first day of every expedition before the main activity begins on the second day.
