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."

Thanks Pete, Your review hit all the high spots we value, especially your customer satisfaction! Next time you come to Phuket you might consider an overnighter trip - camping, bungalows, or overnight resorts.

You can probably book in Phuket, but we are sold out every day. You can book through our office at 076-254-505 but book a few days before your trip. You can also book through our website at 076-254-505 or 076-254-506.
