Commitment

Our Philosophy is to contribute to the community and the environment.

Kayak Chang is committed to a sustainable approach to our work. We consider the Marine National Park to be an environment that we can explore but must not exploit. We are proud of the fact that we leave only footprints and take only photographs (and other peoples rubbish). Kayak Chang uses only local suppliers for all our expedition needs which results in a wonderful working relationship with the local community and reduced carbon foot print.

Kayak Chang is committed to our customers safety and learning.  The minimum standard for our guides is UKCC BCU Level 2 Coach and 4* leaders Sea. In addition to this most of the guides are SPA climbing instructors, MLTB Mountain Leaders etc. All our staff are First Aid Qualified and are CRB Cleared (UK Staff). The team is made up of European and Thai staff, which reflects the professional approach to our work and is proven by the quality feedback we receive.

Equipment

Boats

End of  2013, Kayak Chang have invested in a fleet of new full composite Tiderace Xcape expedition boats. We feel strongly, that the quality of our kayaks reflects our commitment to sea kayaking in this region. Within the fleet we have both small, medium and large boats enableing us to fit our customers out with the right size boat, giving you the opportunity to express yourself and as a result develop your skills as a kayaker.

Paddles

In order to enjoy the boats to the full, you need to have quality paddles. So with this in mind we have invested in set of Werner paddles. The set includes Shuna, Camano, Ikelos, Cyprus, Athena and Corryvrecken blades. All are carbon fibre throughout, some with straight shafts, some with bent shafts and several foam filled.

Sea Kayaking Expeditions

We are sea kayakers, offering quality expeditions with top of the range equipment and highly skilled and experienced guides.  Sea kayaking affords us the opportunity to reach places not accessible to the vast majority of people who visit Koh Chang and its National Park, however getting to these places requires strength, skill and stamina.  During the high season (November – March), the sea for the most part is very accessible, however it is the sea and as such, does change its mood often.

three-day

3 Day Sea Kayaking Expedition

This is our introductory level multi day expedition and as such requires good physical fitness as up to 20 km a day is often covered. During the journey we visit beautiful beaches and islands, stop in good quality accommodation, swim and snorkel over colourful reefs and finish with a paddle up the South West coast of Koh Chang, which is a sea kayakers heaven.
