Seacanoe Vietnam Annual Training Trip - October 24-27 2011

John Gray's Sea Canoe constantly adds new trips, Readings, Slide Shows, Guest Comments, Products and Wallpapers.

Slide shows include natural history, unusual culture (including Royal Barges) and dramatic nature. Readings include Caveman's academic and published articles, keynotes & clippings. Links page includes environmental issues and Insider recommendations for quality and ethical Phuket contacts.

We founded "Natural History By Sea Kayak Since 1983" in Hawai'i to deliver top-quality Ecotourism expanding your awareness. Thailand's Timeline credits Caveman with founding Thailand's sea kayaking industry in 1989. Thailand includes world-famous Hong By Starlight and Day In The Islands, an Eco-alternative to highly polluting 2-cycle speedboats.

Lifelong Environmental activist John "Caveman" Gray became an Ecotourism pioneer by blending "Keep The Country COUNTRY!", "We Put You In Your Own Documentary", "Clean Air, Clean Water", and "See You On The Water" to create "Tropical Kayaking".

In 1985, Gray conceived, field produced and starred in Emmy Award "Moloka'i's Forgotten Frontier", and "Teddy" (Best Environmental Education Production) for producers Gary Sprinkle and Mike May. Caveman's 1989 Travel Channel "Inside Hawai'i" series was triple encore. In Asia, Gray appeared in over 250 videos on most nature channels. Caveman's Tsunami Media Kit provided accurate Tsunami coverage for numerous high profile media.

Phuket travel forums applaud our creativity, professionalism, guides, service, food and international standards as "best ever". SeaCanoe Vietnam is National Geographic World Top 25 and Puerto Princesa Mayor Edward Hagedorn has non-stop environmental awards - and Environmental festivals perfect for NGO and international school groups.

Why we're What We are WHY WE’RE WHAT WE ARE …and do what we do

We’re uncomfortable about blowing our own horn so, instead of telling you what great trips we run, let me explain why our trips are so good.

Since we started ‘Natural History by Sea Kayak Since 1983’, we’ve stuck o some basic concepts that keep us going through thick and thin. They may seem conservative, but our guests constantly say, “Best experience of our entire vacation” Read more.

Free RideWant To Know Why Caveman is a crazy "Go For It" lunatic?

Labor Day in Southern California means sunny skies, crowded beaches and a gentle 2-3 foot swell the kids can play in, so we visited family friends at their Huntington Beach house. In 1963, I was 18 and still hadn't seen the already legendary Hawai'i, but I literally crawled into the Laguna Beach surf when I was six months old. I kept right on going, spending my time outside school bodysurfing and SCUBA diving. Read Free Ride
