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."

My parents, my husband and I had wonderful experience in the tour of Hong by starlight provided by this company. The staff are great and professional, helping me take care of my parents, introducing the beautiful nature, as well as geological heritage to us. We truly appreciate what they had prepared for us in the tour, which is definitely one... More

This is such an amazing experience, I highly recommend it to anyone that goes to Phuket. John Gray is the original hong explorer, and had put together an eco-friendly tour with small numbers/personalized service, better timing (afternoon/evening tour rather than morning means you skip the crowds, AND get to see bioluminescent plankton at night - which are just SO freaking...

This is the best day trip I've been on. The guides were so friendly & welcoming. They were great fun & spoke great English. Our Guide Tiger gave us a great tour, and really made the effort to socialize with us on the boat when we weren't kayaking. The sights are amazing and was broken up really well, so you... More

We went as a group of 4 with John Gray's Sea Canoe for the Hong by Starlight tour in Feb 2015. And up until now, I still have really fond memories of that tour. I had Cham for our guide and my boyfriend and I had a really wonderful time with him! The tour is really special, leaving slightly before... More

Overall, I couldn't have asked for a more comprehensive and pleasant experience for the following reasons: 1) STRONG COMMUNICATION: Very clear, timely responses, and well-managed expectations. 2) HIGH QUALITY: Safe and punctual transportation to and from the dock, the huge boat we used to get out, the life jackets we were given, the kayaks, the 2:1 ratio of tourists:guides for...

This is the most enjoyable day trip I've experienced in a very long time. Good for singles, couples, and families with kids old enough to swim. Travel on 1 of 3 well equipped boats - we had 32 people on board with 1 guide for every 2 people and were well looked after as they do the paddling, leaving us... More
