Small Teak Boat Canal Adventure

Go Explore Canals of Thailand!

Who We Are

"A Unique Canal Tour" is our concept.

We believe what makes Thailand so unique is the mixture of eclectic things, the great smiles, and the abundant waterways.  

We are a small tour operator who specializes in canals in Bangkok and surrounding area. We would like to share our unique canal experience with you.  Here are few words from the owners,

Welcome on board!

We are Sacha and Tom, Japanese and Thai- American couple who love to travel waterways.  In early 2009, we were searching for a canal-side house in Bangkok and Southwest of Bangkok, Floating Market area.  We hired many boats to explore the canals during 2009 to 2011 and found the boat ride to be fun and relaxing. We met canal-side residents and heard their interesting stories. 

Seeing the scenery from the boat was always fascinating, from tilting shacks to traditional Thai houses in tropical green lush garden and lotus pond; quiet reflexive temples with simmering reflecting colored ceramic roofs, to local boisterous kids, laughing and splashing into the canal water.

We decided to share this little adventurous boat rides with travelers from travelers from around the world.

We hope you will enjoy our boat tour as much as we do!

Our Team

As our company has now grown to be a little bigger than mom and pap operation as we started many years ago, we carefully selected our team members to the few guides who are passionate about boat tours and what h/she does.  

All of our guides speak English fluently and some speak good French, Spanish and Chinese.  They are knowledgeable in Thai culture, some into Thai food and cooking, and history of Thailand.  They love nothing more than sharing their knowledge with travelers who like to learn about the local ways of Thai life.  

Our boat drivers are enthusiastic about driving their boats and have experiences in driving a boat in and around the canals since they were young.  They are used to boating everywhere, everyday grocery shopping, visiting friends and even take a long ride to the ocean for fishing! 

From our back office, Sacha, Fuji and Sheenah answer all of your booking requests and inquiries.  They are flexible and always try their best to accommodate the guests’ needs and requests.  In the past, we had guests who are as young as a few months old to who are over 80 years old.  We also had a few  guests on wheel chairs and a group of mute travelers who use sign language.  We love challenges and will try our best to put everyone on our boat safely.
