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."

It is a great way of seeing some of the coast and islands, caves and enjoying time out on a kayak, Excellent guides, very well organised and really good food. It is a good day out and well worth the money. Would not have missed it for the world!

We booked this day trip through our hotel, but had seen good reviews on trip advisor and in travel books. We were so glad we were able to go! They picked us up from our hotel and returned us home as well. Staff were excellent, we had our own "captain Jack" to paddle us through some very tight spaces to... More

As two students travelling on a budget we were super hesitant to book this tour as it was a little more than we budgeted for. After our experience we would absolutely do it again in a heartbeat. The Hong by starlight your was a refreshing and much needed break from the overwhelming touristy vibe in Patong. Decided to go on... More

Our Phuket trip was Memorable mainly because of our one day 'Hong by Starlight' tour with John Gray! Firstly, unlike all the other day tours during our last Phuket trip which picked us Late from the hotel, John Gray's pick up was Right On Time! So we started the trip happy! We met our tour guide, Alex, when we arrived... More

Another great trip! Yes, a "repeat" because the John Gray's Sea Canoe trip was so much fun for us back in June 2009, that we decided we wanted to go again! And once again, we had a great time! This time our kayak guide was Nick who looks like the actor, Morgan Freeman! Or Denzel Washington! Nick joked and said... More

I won a Hong by Starlight trip for two people but would have happily paid for this experience. We did this tour around 4 years ago and when we arrived at the dock one of the staff there remembered us. Once again we had a fabulous day. The guides are fantastic, the food is amazing, it is a very well... More

The Hong by starlight tour is an exceptionally planned and implemented programme. Its worth every single penny spent. It was a day long tour where not even a single minute is spent in boredom. They keep you engaged all the time. Staff is so nice and humble. They make you feel home. Everyone is personally taken care of. Food is... More

We loved every minute of our day out with this company. There is a 50 minute drive from Patong to the beach. Then a very nice cruise out to the caves. The boat was very comfortable, loads of shade, 2 bathrooms etc Pairs or singles depending on your family group are allocated their own guide for the day. These guys... More

We took the a day tour according to the hotel front desk recommendation. The price we paid included transportation to the port and back to hotel. We got picked up in a very pimp van, interior with blink glitter, red velvet seat with golden curtains. On board in to the sea, we got soft drinks and snack served. Lunch on... More
