Krabi White Water Rafting and ATV

Getting ready to open the water gates at the Krabi White water rafting White Water fun

Krabi Ride and Raft has to be one of the best places for rafting and ATV in Asia

The location in Phang Na is stunningly beautiful, surrounded by mountain scenery it would be fantastic even just as a viewpoint.

White water rafting

The rafting takes place at an old Thai tin mine. The river that was once used to clean the ore has now been given a new lease of life. Using a dam at top of the mountain, the water is held back and released once a day to create some amazing white water rapids.

The advantage of this is that it is very predictable, every day that has the same volume of water will create the same rapids. The staff who ride in the boats use this knowledge to make your ride down the mountain a memorable one while still being incredibly safe. They know exactly when to paddle, when to lean and when to kick off the banks to get maximum thrills.

The inflateable rafts are of the highest quality and have capacity for  4 to 6 guests as well as 1 or 2 guides. The guides are trained in swift water rescue to ensure safety. Depending on the experience, size and fitness of the passengers there will be 1 or 2 guides in each boat, but for more experienced adventure seekers,  the group may be given the option to paddle at the helm! Please, only take this on if you are confident of your abilty.

The ride can be 5km or 9km with the last 4 km being only for serious thrill seekers. During dry season on occasion there is not enough water for the full 9km.

7km rafting trips are also available (but we don't have space on the page to fit all the combinations.) If interested in this option, please just ask.

Please Note that this activity is an adventure sport and please do follow all instructions. With any adventure sport, while you are doing it for the excitement (it wouldn't be an adventure sport without any possibility of danger), you should also be aware of the risks. If you do fall out of the boat, you are likely to get a few cuts and bruises. 

ATV

The ATV machines are all high quality powerful machines and the routes include a variety of terrain. The routes can be adapted to suit beginners or the most experienced ATV riders looking for a challenge.

There are 1 hour and 2 hour options available.

ATV only is also available. If you take this option, there is an additional trip in the afternoon to a lovely waterfall to take swim and relax while the rafters are busy... rafting :)

The route goes through rivers, up mountains and along the way you get to see the most amazing scenery. Riding ATV's is great fun on any day, rain or shine. A little bit of mud can make it even more fun.

Elephant Trek

Elephants are amazing animals. In Phangna, the route for the ride is nearly as spectacular as the animals on which you ride. Its a fantastic experience that everyone should try sometime. Being up on an elephant is a unique feeling, its comfortable, you have a great viewpoint and its peaceful. For passing through this amazing scenery, you can see why elephants have been used for transport in Thailand since time began.

The elephants are well cared for and treated with real respect.

One section of the 5km Krabi White water rafting ATV Riding can get a bit muddy!

** Please Note that white water rafting and ATV riding are sports which by definition have a level of danger. You must follow instructions given by the guide at all times. Krabiitrek cannot be held responsible for any injury. **

In reality, as long as you are sensible, the danger is very small, and its a whole lot of fun.

For rafting, although we have had one or two customers falling out of boats, there has been no serious injury beyond a few scratches and bruises in the ten years that we have been offering this trip. If you are not willing to accept the risk, please do not book this trip. The route through the rapids is controlled by the guides and to make it exhilerating, they will bounce the boat off the rocks, this is intentional and is to make the trip more fun. If there are any younger children in the boat, they will choose a less bouncy route through the rapids. If you are nervous, please mention this to the guide on the minivan journey to the rafting camp and they will ensure you are put in a boat that takes a slightly easier route. The actual rafting guides on the boats do not have a great level of English language. At all times, hold on tight and use the foot straps to keep your legs secoured to the boat.

For ATV, always follow the guides instructions. If you are not sure about anything please ask the guide. When riding, you must make sure that you stay within your own level of control and do not go too fast. Always take the route that the guides take. Its great fun and very safe as long as you behave responsibly. The engines get very hot and you will be given a leg protector to prevent burns. Make sure that you secure this well as the guide will show you and make sure that it stays on.
