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."

Hi! I actually booked on your website and chose to pay offline on the spot of the tour. However I received an email telling me to pay online instead. Could I just ask if the trip has been registered? For 9 June 2017, Hong by starlight for 2! I also emailed you guys as well! But there was no response! How to hear from you soon!
