Canoeing or Kayaking in Krabi

Canoeing is the activity of paddling a canoe for the purpose of recreation, sport, or transportation. It usually refers exclusively to using a paddle to propel a canoe with only human muscle power. A kayak is propelled using a paddle with two blades where the paddler sits with their legs in front of them, whereas canoes are propelled using single- or double-bladed paddles where the paddler is kneeling or sitting on a raised seat. Kayaks are usually closed-decked boats with a spraydeck, while canoes are usually open boats. There are also open kayaks and closed canoes. Internationally, the term canoeing is used as a generic term for both forms though the terms "paddle sports" or "canoe/kayak" are also used. In North America, however, 'canoeing' usually refers only to canoes, as opposed to both canoes and kayaks. Paddling a kayak is also referred to as kayaking.

In modern canoe sport, both canoes and kayaks may be closed-decked. Other than by the minimum competition specifications (typically length and width (beam)) and seating arrangement it is difficult to differentiate most competition canoes from the equivalent competition kayaks. The most common difference is that competition kayaks are always seated, and competition canoes are generally kneeling. Exceptions include Canoe Marathon (in both European and American competitive forms) and sprint (high kneeling position). The most traditional and early canoes did not have seats, the paddlers merely kneeled on the bottom of the boat. Recreational or 'Canadian' canoes employ seats and whitewater rodeo and surf variants increasingly employ the use of 'saddles' to give greater boat control under extreme conditions.


Tahm Pee Hua Toe or Tahm Hua Galok is a large cave with many grottos. It is situated on a hill in the middle of the water surrounded by mangroves. A long time ago, a human skull that was larger than ordinary size was found in the cave. From then on , the cave became known as 'Pee Hua Toe', or 'Big-headed ghost'. In addition to this, there are prehistoric drawings on the cave walls with a large number of people, animals, and various organs. There are also vast numbers of shells in the sedimentary rock. To get there, we kayak from Bor Tor Pier, the same place from where you would leave to get to Tahm Lod Nua Tai.
