This trip was the highlight of our stay in Phuket - relaxing, comfortable and highly entertaining - taking you to caves not visited by most tourists. The staff on board are really fabulous - thanks so much Tom and his crew. The food is delicious. The final part of the trip is quite spiritual and moving. We were with our... More

We did the Hong by Starlight trip a few days ago. It was by far our favourite tour. Not only do you get to see Phang Nga Bay from a different perspective in the canoes but the crew are extremely friendly and make the whole day fun. We would definitely do this tour again. The food that was included was... More

Young children and the elderly can do this. You do get wet, but it is relatively calm waters. Our group had 40-50 peole on the large boat, then 2 plus a guide go in each kayak....three plus a guide if there are kids involved. The guide does all the paddling. Our boat had several toddlers on it, and a few... More

Took my husband and grand kids and their parents to see the Hongs a must see for anyone hard to believe until you go in through a secret cave area in the middle of what looks like a massive island.Had one passenger who sustained a nasty slash and lots of coral embedded when he fell on rocks, well looked after...

Had a great day with John Gray's Sea Canoe's Hong By Starlight tour. We were picked up on time from our Patong Hotel & had the next 50 minutes to get to know our fellow travelers as we made our way to the jetty on the east coast of Phuket. A beautiful leisurely trip on the well provisioned boat found... More

We had a truly amazing overnight trip with John Gray's Sea Canoe. The activities were varied and interesting and we got a lot done without feeling rushed at any point. The food was great (including for vegetarians) and the guides were very friendly and clearly wanted us to enjoy ourselves. Particular highlights were swimming in the bioluminescent plankton, the evening... More

The crew members were fun and informative. The food was lovely. The pace of the day and all the activities was leisurely so you never felt rushed. In the group... More

We visited 2 islands, got to self paddle, swim, made a Kratong with our guide I even tried making an orchid bird albeit it looked very wonky. They provide lunch and dinner... More

We did the Hong by starlight tour and it did not disappoint on any level. The car that picked us up at our hotel was prompt, clean and airconditioned. We were greeted warmly by staff upon our arrival. The boat was clean, well maintained and comfortable for the 1 hour ride to the hongs. The briefing about the area was... More
