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."

Food was outstanding, people (guides) were very friendly, the points of interest were amazing. We started out not exactly knowing how many people would be on this tour. Once we arrived at the gift shop, we were a little overwhelmed by the all of the people, thinking there's no way all of these people were going to fit on one... More

The "Hongs by Twilight" tour was fantastic from start to finish. Very professional with a keen eye on safety. The lunch and dinner were terrific with dishes explained and very tasty. The sea canoeing was great as was the commentary from our guide for the day "Tiger". His English was good and his knowledge made the experience great. We tipped... More

The guides take you to the most amazing places, through caves so low you have to lay down in the canoe! Our guide was well versed on all the natural history of the area and was able to answer all our questions. Lunch and dinner were safe, tasty and ample. The whole team were professional with a sense of fun... More

It was a really good experience for my and my partner. We enjoyed everything, food was awesome and fresh, the staff were friendly and our guide was a fisherman from the zone who really showed us many parts. We also had a free time to do swimming and paddling. It really was the best experience in Phuket and Thailand. Will... More

Awesome day. Lunch on the boat was excellent and the afternoon and evening tour time reduces exposure to direct sun, especially that the canoeing and swimming was mainly in the shades of the Hungs. OTTO my guide was full of information about wildlife, plants and fish. It has to be experienced to appreciate the lagoons, caves and 200 metre high... More
