If you've managed to travel all the way to Phuket, don't miss this excursion. It is phenomenal, exactly as advertised. It takes all day, and be sure to bring sunscreen. In mid-March it was a hot day even by our Atlanta standards. the scenery, food, and guides were excellent. Can't say enough about the guides and staff, they were knowledgeable... More

With 2 adults and 4 girls aged 10,11,11 & 12 this was a perfect trip. The islands are spectacular, truly amazing. The whole setup from hotel pickup to drop off was smooth and easy. But it was the quality of the guides that truly made the trip great. Our 3 guides in our 3 canoes were friendly, funny, kind, knowledgable... More

We ventured out for our day towards kong island, we stopped off at another boat and... More

This company tour comes highly recommended - there are many companies that offer this tour, as we saw from the many different boats - but where the other boats seemed to be stuffed to overflowing with people, John Gray ran two boats to accommodate the 40 or so people that were booked. This mean we had a really relaxing and... More

Outstanding from the quality of the experience to the knowledgeable and friendly staff. I really appreciated their respect for the environment and the animals we encountered which added to this magical experience. Delicious food, great explanation of everything and probably the best day I had on my 3 week holiday. A five star experience - thank you!

There are so many tour companies that visit Phang Nga Bay and prices vary greatly. We went with our hotel's recommendation of John Gray Sea Canoe. I cannot imagine another tour company could do a better job. This is a first class tour company. John Gray Sea Canoe is different because they leave around 11:00 am and return around 8:00... More

Having been with one of the opposition companies earlier in the week we can honestly say that this is a very professional company. Every aspect of the days activities is covered, from booking to transport from and to the hotel, the presentation of the food, the information about the islands and caves. If a change is made to the itinerary... More

My friend and I went on the John Gray canoe adventure in Phuket, Thailand June 24, 2014. They picked us up from the JW hotel around noon and we met other passengers at the pier.; they split us into 2 groups so it was not crowded. John gray adventure was well worth the money, we were on out in sea... More

Chose this tour over some of the cheaper ones and so glad we did. The whole day from start to finish was amazing. One of the best experiences in Thailand so far.

This was the first time we found ourselves in the middle of sea in a canoe. We (self, wife and son) were a bit scared and it increased when we our canoe driver rowed us into a pitch dark cave filled with bats. But once he switched in his torch light, we were amazed to see the lights reflecting of... More
