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."

What an amazing experience. Almost indescribable beauty. If you’re in Phuket you should do yourself a favor and go out with John Gray’s Sea Canoe. This is an adventure you should take. Friendly guides, great food, and amazing unique scenery.

From pick up to onboard treatment to lunch to tea and to the canoeing, there is nothing to complain! It was super worth every penny to go with John Gray. Will definitely go with John Gray again.
