Overview

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."

Not sure about that. Maybe too early for booking. Rain season is September so you should be ok. Suggest to book locally - or take a tour of the Marriott Vacation Club and get the tour for free. Hope that helps
