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."

Everyone in the crew was friendly and accommodating and experienced in taking care of tourists. It was impossible not to enjoy every moment, as they made it so easy. We visited wonderful caves and saw wondrous sights.... More

Our tour guide was amazing, she was so knowledgeable and friendly. But the tour itself was a little disappointing, all the places we visited was packed with other tour groups. Most of the caves are no more than mud holes and little dirty. Our tour guide was picking up trash along the way and put them into our canoe until... More

Well worth doing in Phuket. One of the better excursions. The guides are helpful & provide a great experience. They do all the hard paddling so everyone can relax & enjoy the day.

The boat is too old with lots of rust and dirt 3. First I saw the cocroach on the table (they serve food on it),... More

This was possibly one of our favorite tours in Thailand. It was top notch. Other companies do similar tours for cheaper but this tour is worth the money! The staff were kind and helpful. The food was delicious and plentiful. We were the only company in the bay at the time. John gray hires fisherman from local villages to help... More

There are not words to describe how incredible this trip is! We had the best guide ever and he talked to us a lot about the history of the islands and he had a great sense of humor as well! The day starts as everyone gathers together in this little store by the pier. We didn't bother taking hats but... More
