The nearest and best river kayaking or tubing to Khao Lak is in Khao Sok National Park which is just over an hour north. You can do day trips to there if you are staying in Khao Lak, with several local operators featuring this tour including transfers from and to your accommoadation. Alternatively you can stay overnight in tree houses or bungalows in the National Pak with a variety of tours, including kayaking or tubing, elephant rides, on offer and/or a visit to to Cheow Lan Lake and Reservoir about an hour further east with longtail boat trips across the lake with raft transfer to the Caves or the floating raft houses where you can sleep overnight.

Here are some links to more information:

Some Tour Offices offer a rafting tour at the river in Takua Pa (30 km north of Khao Lak). After the raining season is possible to make another tour at Baan Lamru (3 km south of Baan Khao Lak). At Thap Lamu (5 km south of Baan Khao Lak) you can make a boat trip through mangroves and if you have enough time you can go for a "Honk Trip" to Phang Nga.

And last but not least, Alan is right - the real adventure river tour you find at Khao Sok.

Best regards and sorry for my English

agree with the above, but beware as now the rivers are a bit difficult. when we were there a little over a week ago there was an accident every day during these rafting tours. it is not so bad in Khao Sok where it is more river canoeing then rafting, so you should check out before booking if the conditions are a bit more favorable - observe also if it rains for a couple of days before you take a tour, as this always leads to overflowing of the rivers.
