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."

We were told about this trip by family members who did it in 2015, and it totally lived up to the expectation that was created. The tour was very well organized, from start to finish. Easy online booking, timely hotel pick-up and drop-off in nice...More

What a great review! You covered all the highlights - and more! Next time you come to Phuket you might plan ahead and consider an overnighter. We have both camping and lodging options from bungalows to luxury hotels - and trips from two days to...More

We were a little dubious about this tour, whether it would be worth the not insignificant cost. 2 words: DO IT. It’s an all day tour. The guides spoke English well and went through all the safety procedures. Life jackets were provided and in good...More

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
