We booked this trip on recommendation from friends who had previously done it as there are many Sea Canoe trips in Thailand but this is quite different as you do . The tour includes lunch and dinner and your own guide per two people. We had a fantastic day/night, the food was outstanding and the crew were very entertaining. Our... More

We booked this trip via the Marriott at Mai Khao Beach in Phuket. It was a well organised and very enjoyable trip. I shared a canoe with my eleven year old daughter and my partner was in a separate canoe but we all travelled through the caves as a group. Our guide was knowledgable and gave us lots of information... More

We decided to go with the John Grey island canoeing tour. Best decision we ever made. It was a bit more expensive but the tour was just so unbelievable it was... More

We are a family of four with two girls aged 5 and 9. We booked this tour on the recommendation of our hotel. We were picked up from our hotel in a nice minivan and brought to the docks where the main big boat was. We got on the boat and started the journey. The main guide was very professional... More

My family joined the trip looking for some family fun and boy did we enjoyed the day. The trip is about seeing some natural wonder of Thailand, they have local fishermen/profession tour guide to paddle you around, taking you inside tiny sea tunnel and into lagoon with breath taking scene. The paddler who taken care of us was called 'Champ'... More

I'm not sure what I was more blown away by after this day, the scenery (most incredible scenery I have seen in my life by a long mile), the hospitality (all the guides are so fun, friendly, and speak english), or the delicious homecooked food (both lunch and dinner cooked and served on the boat, and ten times better than...

The tour was well organised from the friendly pick up at our resort, the boat trip and the canoes. The staff on board were well informed and the whole tour had a strong environmental focus. Do not miss this experience when you visit Phuket .
