  • This has to be one of the best things we decided to do in Phucket. When deciding on an excursion to pick we didn’t just want to island hop but we wanted to be able to explore and this tour offers exac...  more »

  • We learned about this excursion from a couple friends that had experienced it during their trips to Phuket. We had a total of 10 people (5 couples) and we all felt this may have been the best thing we did during our week long trip. John Gray himself was on our boat and it was great to get to know him and learn about him putting this experience together years ago. He said he goes out almost everyday as he loves to interact with his customers. Everything was extremely organized and well run. The boat ride out to go canoeing was awesome. Smooth water and amazing scenery. Then we got in canoes and a guide paddled each group so we could just sit and relax. Going into these caves and then into the middle of these islands was incredible. The whole experience was awesome! The food they provided was very good and the crew gave great customer service. I would highly recommend this activity to anyone, regardless of age. I would also recommend using John Gray as they have been doing this for years and know how to create a great experience.
  • We did the tour in December - it was amazing! If you go to Phuket, do this excursion! Perfect for couples or families - activities, scenery and food was SUPERB! Excellent value for money, the staff is very friendly, informative and has a great sense of humor. Everything is as promised and beyond - 10/10 would recommend!
  • Friendly guides. Lots of extra info. Delicious And plentiful local food on the boats. Waterproof bags for valuables provided. Seating on the large boats is not comfortable for long trips. Take towels. Remember to tip the canoe guys and the kitchen help (this is Thailand, and every penny counts!). We’ve done these tours over the years (the scenery and experiences remain fascinating) and they’re always worthwhile.
  • We went in December and did the Hong by Starlight excursion- AMAZING! The crew is fun and experienced and they make you feel very comfortable. The food is superb (probably some of the best we had while abroad)! And, of course, the views were something from a postcard. We HIGHLY recommend this tour!
  • My experience with the John Gray Sea Canoe tour was awesome! I went on an all day tour 1/6/2019. The locations we visited were some of the most beautiful places I've ever seen. The crew was innovative, attentive and incredibly friendly. The crew all loved their jobs, and it shows. Our guide, Tu, got super excited to share things with us, and that made the experience even better. I don't swim and life jackets were provided and I never felt unsafe. And I must comment on the food. Usually on tours you hope to get a decent meal. There's nothing to worry about on this tour! Not only was the food good, but I'd chose to eat there if it were a restaurant! We had the opportunity for John Gray to be on our boat (he had at least 3 out that day, maybe more, so most people didn't have him on the boat). The way hos crew treated him showed real admiration and respect. They appeared to really care for him. What's more, John shared quite a bit of knowledge with us throughout the tour. He has a passion for sharing these beautiful experiences with others. I can't imagine any trip to Phuket would be complete without going on this tour. I'd go again in a heartbeat.
