How much fun you will have depends on how long you can stay, whether you have one week or one month we have plenty to keep you entertained with an action packed itinerary.
The Koh Tao adventure includes the following:
Pick up from the pier
Welcome dinner to meet the rest of the group with our rep

One activity option per week
Stand Up Paddle session
Discover Scuba Dive
Longtail boat tour around the island

You probably don’t want to go all the way to Asia to miss out on the gorgeous beaches, Koh Tao has plenty. However, if you are like us, beaches are never enough, and you also want some serious fun and adventure. With The Koh Tao Adventure, you can pick your own itinerary by choosing from some of the incredible included adventures. You can even sneak in a cheeky Full Moon Party and let the good times roll with an awesome adventure day in the first week.
THE XTREME ACTIVITIES
If you want to stay longer than 1 week, and chill out on one of Thailand’s most incredible paradise islands, you can book extra weeks, to complete the other Koh Tao Adventure options (one per week).
The longer you stay the better value the trip is. If you want to spend 2 months in Thailand, you can combine the Thailand Adventure and the Koh Tao Adventure giving you 2 months in Thailand. Or combine the Koh Tao Adventure with any other trip we run in Thailand or anywhere else in Asia! We have some amazing suggestions, so tell us about your plans and we can see what would suit you best. That is what we are here for.

Please note this programme does not include meals, we are often asked why and the answer is simple. You can eat out in Thailand for as little as £2. 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 to 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.
