Diving, Freediving, Yoga or Muay Thai? What should I Pick?
How adventurous are you?! Some of our top rated activities are in Koh Tao and they are waiting for you, the tough choice is what to do?!
We know Koh Tao only too well, we started Xtreme Gap here, lived and breathed the life here and so we know how to show you a great time – all over the island and in the water around it. It is a paradise island that you could easily fall in love with, spending months relaxing here. We have the perfect cure for all this laziness, with the following adventure options.
Available Included Xtreme Activities On Koh Tao
So when you are lying on a dreamy white sandy beach, in a paradise setting wouldn’t it be nice to have the body to match. With our cross fit package you can! Five full on cross fit sessions, with professional accredited Cross fitness trainers will whip you into shape so you will not feel guilty about lazing on the beach, and dipping into the Gulf of Thailand will be so much more rewarding.
If you have not done CrossFit before you need to come to the 4 different Foundation classes before you can do the regular classes. These 4 classes will teach you all the basic movements and techniques for CrossFit, so that you are able to do the movements safely and effectively. These classes are similar to personal training as our coach will spend lots of time helping them with the movements.
We run the Foundation classes every day at 10.15am and so they can easily do the Foundation classes in a week.
Check out the video below it is the latest fitness craze that has become huge. It’s highly effective high-intensity WODS (work out of the day) mixes hundreds of different techniques and every day is always different. With this option is the perfect way to get into excellent physical shape and get that perfect beach bod
The fit package is the most popular option. It includes 5 Muay Thai sessions taken over five days. It doesn’t matter if you’ve never done it before, learning the national sport of Thailand in a cool jungle gym is an awesome experience. It is a great way to try something new, get really fit and learn much more about the culture of Thailand.
You will under go a modified non contact training regime in the camp that host monthly Muay Thai fights, a really authentic and cool experience!
Some like to do it in the morning and then hit the beach others like the cooler evening training times.
Probably one of our most chilled out options, you have five sessions working on your well-being, and flexibility with a fantastic yoga package. Set in landscaped gardens surrounded by coconut groves there’s a special feeling about the place.
Even if you’ve never tried yoga before this is the perfect place to do it, as everyone is welcome to come and give it a go and it is the perfect activity to take if you want to turn your Koh Tao experience into the ultimate chilled out beach time.
If you want to see what all this scuba diving is all about, with out committing to a full blown PADI course then a Discover Scuba Diving experience is a must. Have you ever wondered what it´s like to breathe underwater. If you want to find out but aren´t quite ready to take the plunge into a certification course, Discover Scuba Diving will let you try scuba to see if you like it. While not an actual scuba certification, during the Discover Scuba Diving experience you´ll learn how to use scuba equipment in shallow water and get a quick and easy introduction to what it takes to explore the underwater world. The discover SCUBA course takes half a day which means you have more beach time to top up the tan :-).
(Please note the diving option is not an open water course, it is a Discover SCUBA which is a taster session lasting half a day you can upgrade to an Open water for an extra £150) which takes 2 1/2 days to complete. Once you have your open water certificate you can add unlimited fun dives costing about £12- £15 per dive.
Free Time On Koh Tao – A Tropical Island Paradise
During the trip there will be plenty of free time for you to explore the beautiful island of Koh Tao. Whilst activities to keep you busy they do not take up the entire week, so you will have plenty of chill time. Don’t worry about getting itchy feet though, there is plenty to do on the island, as you will be with our group there are always plenty of suggestions for things to keep you entertained. Whether it’s exploring the amazing beaches, soaking up the incredible nightlife (or having tasty Thai food to get over the hangover!) feedback from previous Xtreme Gap as has always been very positive about Koh Tao. When you are not off exploring, you have a beautiful resort with a swimming pool to chill out in, and everything is within an easy walking distance of where you are staying. The beach for examples just 3 min.
As Koh Tao is one of the best places in the world to learn to dive, many people upgrade the diving week to a full open water course (a Discover SCUBA is included as standard but this is not a PADI license) Once you have a license you are able to book extra fun dives locally for about £12 per dive.
For those staying for four weeks or if you are lucky enough to coincide with the full moon party dates you can easily head over to the neighbouring island to hit the full moon party as well.
Koh Tao Adventure Day Itinerary
THE ADVENTURE DAY
The adventure day is just that an adventure, so sometimes we mix it up. But below is a summary of what you can expect.
Jeep safari around the island
Everyone meets at the Xtreme Academy for a breakdown of the days activities, fresh coffee and drinks available to purchase. Here we will find out the group’s personal preferences as to what you will enjoy the most. With three speedboats, a selection of jeeps and loads of toys available (think tubes, wake boards and all kinds of fun stuff) we are going to make this day amazing for you.
First up it’s time to go on a jeep safari across the island. Expect to be taken to some pretty amazing viewpoints the spectacular Viewpoint “John-Suwan” is probably our favourite. Even the ride itself is a lot of fun, open air bouncing around in a 4WD. We stop at Freedom beach, one of the most chilled and awesome beaches on the island, and walk up to the viewpoint and take a look of the stunning surroundings of this paradise island, with views of both the East and West sides of the island, plenty of photo opportunities for you.
Lunch at Viewpoint restaurant
Trek back down to the beach and back into the Jeeps and head to Serenity. A new restaurant/viewpoint overlooking Sairee Beach, here we will take lunch lunch and a drink, time to revitalise and get ready for the afternoon sports.
Head down to the boats. All kinds of fun stuff awaits like, Tubing on the way to our Cliff jumping/snorkeling spot. We have a two person ‘Badger Claw’ for some off the hook adrenaline fun. Then we arrive at our Cliff jumping and snorkeling spot. Not only do we have a massive sound system onboard, but also a huge esky to supply drinks on demand (these are not included but they are very cheap and fuels the fun). We will however include a free beer on the boat either way.

Our adventure guides are fully qualified free dive instructors, which means they are experts underwater and will take you to some amazing underwater sites in Koh Tao. Not a strong swimmer? Don’t worry. Sit back and enjoy the boat ride, or get your adrenaline buzzing with some cliff jumping. Then, back to the boat for an awesome cruise back round to Sairee beach, music pumping, drinks flowing and getting everyone ready for the beach session.
Beach For Sunset
On arrival at Sairee beach, we will pull up to Sunset Pool Bar, one of the biggest and best beach venues in Koh Tao. Here we have a deal with the owner to provide Beach Volleyball and Pool games. Expect an epic sunset, the perfect way to round off a full on adventure day.

If we included all of your food, you would have to eat in the same place all the time. We feel that there is so much amazing food to discover in Thailand, that you should be able choose where to eat and when to eat. Going out for dinner is also a social event, you will discover that during the day everyone is training, and you meet in the evening for a nice Thai Curry somewhere. Our rep can tell you all about the nice places to eat.
