“An unbelievable experience… I have seen things your average holidaymaker does not get to see, and some of the islands are really paradise islands.”

“Great paddling with a very professional instructor and guide”

“Fantastic Adventure in Paradise! Thank you for a most amazing trip, two years running!”

“What an absolutely incredible week spent in the beautiful waters off Koh Chang. The course, equipment, people, instruction, location and experience were all absolutely top class.”

Why Koh Chang?

Kayak Chang is situated in Koh Chang Marine National Park at The Emerald Cove Resort, Koh Chang. The park is a protected marine reserve and area of outstanding natural beauty with 52 islands, the largest of which is Koh Chang. Around 70% of the 650Km2 park is ocean and many of the small islands and deserted outcrops are uninhabited so kayaking is one of the best ways to explore the magnificent sea cliffs, secluded beaches, clear waters and stunning reefs.


Committed to the community and the environment

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). We only use local suppliers for all our expedition needs, which results in a wonderful working relationship with the local community and reduced carbon footprint.

Committed to your safety and learning

The minimum standard for our guides is a UKCC BCU Level 2 Coach and 4* Sea Leaders. In addition to this, most of our guides are qualified SPA climbing instructors and MLTB Mountain Leaders with a breadth of outdoor experience. All of our staff are First Aid Qualified and are CRB Cleared (UK Staff). Our team of European and Thai staff reflect our professional approach to our work and this is proven by the quality feedback we receive.

Kayak Equipment

We only use the best quality kayak equipment to ensure your safety and comfort at all times.


Our fleet of new full composite Tiderace Xcape expedition boats come in a range of sizes so we can fit you with the correct size boat that is stable yet easy to manoeuvre, allowing you to develop your skills as a kayaker. Tidrace describe the Xcape series as solid, dependable, highly stable yet very efficient touring kayaks. “Designed to take the hard work out of expeditions, the Xcape glides through the most challenging waters whilst eating away the miles.”


Quality paddles are essential if you want to get the most out of a quality boat and selecting the right paddle is very personal and important for avoiding aches and pains. Our set of Werner paddles come with a variety of blades, including Shuna, Camano, Ikelos, Cyprus, Athena and Corryvrecken. All are carbon fibre throughout and we offer a mixture of straight shafts, bent shafts and several foam filled shafts to suit a range of stroke techniques and sizes.

Buoyancy Aids

Last season we upgraded our Buoyancy Aids and purchased a set of Palm BAs. Palm is one of the UK’s leading watersport manufacturers and their BAs are the ideal choice for a touring adventure, with lots of comfy adjustable features for greater flexibility and fit.


Sea Kayaking Expeditions

Sea Kayaking Expeditions with Kayak Chang

Our sea kayaking expeditions provide you with top-of-the range equipment, highly skilled guides and a chance to reach places not accessible to the vast majority of people who visit Koh Chang and the surrounding National Park.

Choose from single day and shorter 3 day sea kayaking tours ideal for beginners right up to 12 day expeditions that require particular strength, skill and stamina to take you to the furthermost points of the Koh Chang Marine National Park.

When to visit

Our guided kayaking trips take place during the high season (November – March) when the sea for the most part is very accessible, although the sea does change its mood often. If you are looking to progress your kayaking skills in more challenging conditions, then you may be interested in signing up to our annual Sea Kayaking Symposium that takes place in August.
