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.

Had a great time on the water. The fish didn't cooperate, but Torbin worked hard to put me on fish. The boat was clean and the equipment was top notch. Highly recommended!
