Overview

We are Koh Tao's dedicated watersports specialists, from Wakeboarding lessons, to Big Game Fishing and snorkeling excursions. We pride ourselves in excellent service and attention to detail. From a private island cruise, taking in the stunning bays and beaches, away from the crowded tour boats. To powering offshore in our American built Sportsfishing boat, to battle against the biggest fish in the sea. Or strap yourself in, for an adrenalin fuelled Wakeboarding or tubing session, the choice is yours at Extreme Academy Koh Tao. If you'd like to try a full day of adventures, just drop us a line, and we can organise that for you too.
