Outdoor Education in Asia
Ao Yon Outdoor Education Base Phuket
The Sail in Asia Sea Base in Phuket is a purpose-designed outdoor education centre for international schools.
We have changing rooms for male and female students and our fleet comfortably allows for 50 students with instructor to students ratios of 5:1 per boat.
The Sea Base is found at Ao Yon Bay, Phuket Island which is effectively a private beach. This is a great location to be able to learn to sail and explore nature.
Ao Yon bay is just around the corner from the mouth of a mangrove estuary, tropical forests and sandy or rocky intertidal ecosystems. In addition to the many local areas of interest, there are several small islands and national marine parks nearby that are delights to sail to, for day or overnight trips.
Krabi Outdoor Education Site
We are now developing our Krabi Outdoor Education base which is ideal for trips by canoe, dragon boats and keelboats.
The camping sites are located in the beautiful new Krabi Boat Lagoon Marina and its nearby, KBL Resort beach location, (also owned by the marina). The sites have Capsule accommodation, as an alternative to Camping, should school groups prefer this option.
The two sites are ecologically spectacular. They are part of Krabi districts huge network of mangrove rivers and estuaries. The nearby offshore islands, easily lend themselves to day trips or overnight trips on sailing craft. This site is being promoted by the KBL marina for schools Outdoor Education Adventure trips because of the owners commitment to developing ecological awareness of this as yet unspoilt wilderness.
The Adventurous Journeys available in this location can also be bespoke. We welcome discussions with School Group Leaders about their thoughts and requirements for their trips and we do as much as possible to offer interesting river trips in this area of outstanding natural beauty.
Outdoor Education at Ocean Marina
We also have a facility at Ocean Marina near Pattaya. This facility allows us to use the sea and nearby lakes within the marina grounds.
The camping site is close by the two lakes and we have access to a huge field nearby for sports activities. There are a fleet of 12 Platus keelboats and so can offer large numbers of students (60) training or adventure training courses. The lakes allow us to offer Dragon Boating, Camping, Canoeing and Team Building.
An adventure playground facility is a 15 minute bus ride from the Ocean Marina and this facility has a range of climbing and challenging activities with good safety equipment and well qualified instructors to organise groups.
The Pattaya site at Ocean Marina includes a hotel provision rather than camping and may be worth considering for International School Groups that are flying in from overseas and want to rest the students on arrival and departure.

Sail in Asia understands that to get the most from a school journey or trip it is best practice for the trip leaders to have completed a pre-visit to familiarise themselves with both the activities and environment. We are happy to invite teachers to come and have a 2-day taster session at our watersports centre prior to visiting with their students.
