International Award Adventurous Journeys
Adventurous Journeys are our speciality and we have some really exciting expeditions, for school groups. We train students to sail before embarking on expeditions to outlying islands. Pre-visits by Teachers are really ideal, SIA staff to organise and discuss the school trip, in detail.
Outdoor Education in Krabi and Phuket
Ao Yon – Our 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. Our Sea Base is to be 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 and we like students to camp in tents or on yachts where possible to extend their experience.
