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."

Booked before leaving UK, was a little bit sceptical on previous reviews and thought maybe too costly / overpriced. Completed my trip totally converted and share comment of another review . Were I to go back to Phuket - would book John Gray again. J G - very helpful organisation but the Star is the trip - for me, not... More

What a fantastic day out this is. If you get the chance to go then do so - you will not be disappointed. Suitable for couples, families, solos, groups - we had a 9 month old baby on our cruise who joined in all of the activities quite safely and the crew couldn't do enough to ensure that he and...

The hong by starlight tour was definitely the high point of our trip. I'd like to start off that I'm not the adventurous type when it comes to water activities and can often times become seasick but this trip looked amazing and I wanted to take the chance and I'm so happy I did. No seasick and absolutely nothing to... More

Every aspect of this tour is so well done! I've been on this trip twice now and if I go back to Phuket, I'll do it again in a heartbeat! From start to finish, this tour was top notch in every way! The employees were incredibly professional, courteous, attentive and focused on providing a world class experience for all of... More

After taking friends advice, we reserved one night in Phuket just to do the Hong by starlight tour. It was an amazing experience. The staff are the friendliest, warmest people we met on our entire 2.5 week trip in Thailand. We even had the pleasure of having John gray on the tour with us that day, and we got to... More

We were lucky and had incredible weather, picture perfect day - they hire very nice helpful people who guide you throughout the tour - you have your very own personal guide!! The caves were amazing, we got to see bats, monkeys, giant lizards and while laying down in the canoe, you can touch the caves as they are so close... More

What a great excursion & we would do it again in a heartbeat! This is a larger group tour but once you get out to the islands you leave the boat to hop into a 2 person kayak with your guide. The beauty we saw on this trip is almost indescribable. We kayaked into lagoons, saw breathtaking stalagtites, caves, gorgeous... More

We did the John Grey Phanga Na trip yesterday and we had a great time. Nice clean boats, good transport to thePier and the staff could not have been more helpful and kind. Real surprise was the excellent food and seafood buffet. Great value for money . Punctual as well. Good job and well done.

This was one of our favorite trips! Aew was our guide and he was so intelligent and loved teaching us about Thailand!! It was so wonderful to be immersed in the culture through him! We did the afternoon and evening tour. It was a little freaky to go through the smaller caves (you have to lay down to fit) but... More
