Phuket Water Sports and Activities

Seakayak, Surfing, Snorkelling, Wakeboard and Sailing

Phuket Island - surrounded by warm tropical waters - is a paradise for water sports lovers. The area is well known to scuba enthusiasts but lesser-recognised water activities such a sea kayaking and kite surfing are growing in popularity.

Of course, the gentle tides and calm waters from November to April are perfect for snorkeling while the wild and rough waves from May to October are great for surfers. It's your call: either gently ride the waves on a cruise or get to your destination ultra quick on a speedboat. Enjoy watersports and activities around Phuket.
