After 12 years designing and developing one of the World's most highly awarded Ecotourism companies, John "Caveman" Gray goes his own way by forming "John Gray's SeaCanoe" with 18 of his most loyal and experienced guides. "After 12 years in Phuket, the experiment ran its course and I was packing for Polynesia," says Gray, "but when all these guides showed up, I had no choice but to stay and do another start-up."

Not a moment of wasted time, hihghly informative, educational and not crowded. One of the best tours I took on my Thailand holiday. Scenery is breathtaking, a chance to see animals, explore, look and learn. Didn't feel touristy.

I wish I could go again! We went on the Hong by Moonlight day trip, and it was the highlight of our vacation. It might seem like there are a lot of people on your boat out to the islands, but when you're in your canoe it really doesn't. The food was fantastic, and our canoe-er, Bus, was the best!... More

Very nice van picked me up at 11:30. We had a less than an hour drive to a pier. We got on the boat and on our way. The lunch was great and the company eco minded. The first island had a few other boats and kayaks but the second 2 didnt! Another solo woman and I had the main... More

This is a great trip to show you many beautiful locations in the Andaman sea. The caves you go into are awesome and the cliffs and islands you see are really great. We found all of the staff to be really helpful and friendly. The food on the trip was really good and the big boat was in good shape.... More

I wish I could give more than 5 stars. This is an absolute must if you go to Phuket. Entire trip was planned and communicated well. Right from pick up, appointing a guide for day, food, canoe, explanation of what and where. Towards the end of trip, they gave us time to either swim or canoe ourselves. Experience of making...

We arranged our trip for Valentine's Day - didn't fancy a posh dinner with lots of other couples getting the same rose and musical serenades! So picked this excursion and are we glad we did! We were picked up from our hotel (Cape Panwa) at 11.30am and taken to Ao Po Mariner where we waited for our boats departure. A... More

This was a birthday gift for me, and it was absolutely fantastic. You visit a number of breathtaking caves and lagoons. The food served onboard was great, the hospitality was phenomenal, and the guides were tremendous. It is a very long day (about 9 hours) and so be prepared with a change of clothes, lots of sunscreen, towel(s), batteries for... More

Pick up was prompt despite a small hiccup with the driver who was apparently not in a good mood, but once we reach Aonang Jetty, everything went well. The crew were friendly and detailed, our guide was an intern with the company but was very patience to explain the sites we visit although his english was not very fluent. The... More

Everything about this tour is fantastic. The boat ride was great, the lunch was delicious with a lot of options, and the guides were really nice and very entertaining! You can tell they all love what they do and are very knowledgeable about the area. This is a must do for your trip!!

I was very impressed with John Gray's Sea Canoe adventures. The Marriott highly recommended it since I wanted to do photography. They were right. The evening lighting was the best. But what really impressed me about this tour is how the staff talked so well of their "Boss - John Gray" and his vision for cleaning up the caves. We... More
