Owner description: 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."

A great day - but not really by starlight. It started by travelling on a comfy but basic large boat (where we were served a tasty fresh and light lunch) to the first 'hong'. We were guided into the Hongs by our brilliant guide...this was followed by tea & cake (delicious!) then another Hong followed by free time to paddle... More

We spend 8 days for our honeymoon in Thailand doing a lot of excursions in different places. John grays sea canoe was by far the best. I definitely recommended to everyone who want to see the beauty of Thailand.

John: Your commitment to excellence in respecting the serenity of the environment and helping others enjoy an all too brief experience that will last a lifetime is the very reason why we made our seventh adventure with you and yours. Each time, going back to 2003, has been a different kind of event to be remembered. Might have been the... More

This was recommended to us, so we pre-booked as we were limited on which days we had available. The transfers were punctual, (the only problem was other clients from hotels further afield were caught in traffic so we had to wait about an hour for everyone to arrive at the joining point). My two sons (aged 8 and 11) loved... More
