John Gray's Sea Canoe

National Geographic Adventure - 2003 "World's Top 50 Adventures"

Enjoy an afternoon of sea cave exploring literally inside Phang Nga Bay’s marine geology, - including the caves and hidden lagoons John Gray found in 1989. Great nature and wildlife surrounds you.

Our World Famous Entry Trip starts mid-day to avoid the crowds, customized transfers included. Don’t eat lunch – we serve you on board of our comfortable support boat. After lunch, briefing and a raptor show, a professional guide paddles you through Phang Nga Bay’s “Tidal Nape Sea Caves” in our custom designed kayaks hand-made in Oregon by SOTAR, the World’s premier white water raft manufacturer. The unique experience is dramatic, but Caveman’s SOTAR custom kayaks are specially designed for your trip. We’ve never capsized, punctured or had an accident.

After a detailed briefing, your professional guide paddles you and your partner through “Tidal Nape” Sea Caves literally inside Phang Nga Bay’s marine limestone karstic islands into “Hongs“(Thai for “Room”)

The hidden cliff-lined lagoons are populated with macaques, water monitors, kingfishers, mudskippers, egrets, Sea Eagles and Brahminy Kites.

We finish after dark by floating your own self-made flower “Kratong” in a spiritual and spectacular Natural light show. Eating our delicious seafood-vegan buffet on the trip back, you return to the pier two hours after sunset.

Guests say our evening Loi Kratong ceremony complete with fireflies and dinoflagellates (bioluminescent plankton) is a "Spiritual Experience", "Best Trip of our lives-anywhere", and "Best Thai Food We've ever had – and on a boat".

We shop daily for the highest quality healthy ingredients. Seafood is net caught and chicken are free range. Brown, red, and black rice is served with “Broke ‘da Mouth” homemade Masaman curry.

And this is just the intro trip.

Now open every Wednesday, Friday, Saturday. From 1st November 2022 open everyday.

We had a lovely, relaxing day with plenty of highlights - great and plentiful food (with attention to allergies and food intolerances for other people); time to enjoy the different sea cave and hong sites as well as making and floating kratongs for good luck and seeing the bioluminescence in the water after dark. Really quite “touristy” type program but felt relatively authentic. The sea kayak guides were very competent and safe and made special efforts to pick up any floating rubbish, adding to the green credentials of the company. We would thoroughly recommend the experience.

What an amazing, magical day! Superbly organised - faultless. The food was fantastic, the paddlers very skilful and friendly and the itinerary was supremely well thought through. The islands were like entering a strange new world and the caves and lagoons were a unique experience. This trip alone made travelling to Thailand worthwhile.Cannot recommend it highly enough.
Delphine Chan Yin Ah Vane 2 Years ago (2020-02-19 07:51:33)
Amazing tour! Not only were the sights spectacular but the staff seemed genuinely happy to be working. Each pair had their own guide. Both lunch and dinner were superb and importantly, they use glass bottles. Well worth the money! Definitely recommend!

Absolutely amazing canoeing adventure. This was the highlight of our 8 days in Thailand.
