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."

The highlight of our holiday in Phuket. Congratulations to John Gray for exploring these caves and providing an amazing experience for others. Everything was great - the caves, the boat, guides, Thai feast and offering to the Goddess of water. Great day. If you only have time for one thing then do this !!!

We loved our day out on the water with the John Gray staff. Pickup was very well coordinated. We then went onto the boat and had a light lunch, which was absolutely delicious. The staff was funny and seemed very sincere! We went out kayaking 3 times and even was able to kayak by ourselves for an hour or so.... More

I heard rave reviews of this tour before my hubby and i went to Thailand. So I pre-booked it before we arrived. It was by far the best experience we had on our honeymoon in Phuket. Everyone must do this. It is everything it claims to be and more. The guides, scenery and food was outstanding! I took so many... More

Our trip guide Nick and canoe guide Noi were excellent and made the cave exploration fun and engaging for us and our child. This trip is a must do for those looking at a quality... More

2 day overnight kayaking adventure: The first day you are combined with all the one day only group from John Gray's as well as merged with another outfit on large twin motor double decker boat. They ferry us out and around several islands, Monoliths and Hongs. Basically, islands are big enough that people live there, Monoliths are just a rock... More

Loved this! This is the best tour to do while in Phuket. See amazing scenery and eat great food. So worth it, an absolute highlight of our trip with fantastic photo memories. Guides will take you into caves and Hong lagoons, where we saw monkeys and fluorescent plankton

This was one of the highlights of our trip to Phuket. The tour gives you a beautiful view of the many islands near Phuket. We also two great meals on board. Tour guides were informative, funny, and very friendly. Our guide, Alex, paddled my wife and I through the caves and lagoons where we saw some breathtaking sights. We were... More

Try and I'm sure You'll love it too! I'm not a big fan of big tour groups so this is perfect for me. Canoed to caves and get to see beautiful lagoons and pretty planktons. Staff are great with equally good food. 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼
