What John Gray's SeaCanoe stands for - our Policy

John Gray's SeaCanoe has never compromised its approach for the highest ideals and quality of service. Read in nine short points the spirit that stands behind John Gray's SeaCanoe and that dictates the trips we design and offer for you.

1 - Five Awards In Four years

Quite frankly, anybody can fill out an awards application and win a "fluke" award. But when a company is as consistently successful as John Gray SeaCanoe, the awards are the result of substantial concept, policy, practice - and advocacy. John Gray's SeaCanoe is an activist organization Your booking is a stand for honesty, quality, enlightened human resources, environmental conservation and basic human rights. We need your participation if we are to promote these concepts in our host communities.

2 - John Gray's SeaCanoe Staff Is The Key to Our Success

Enlightened human resources is the cornerstone of John Gray's SeaCanoe. We are proud to serve you with an all-local staff, trained to international standard and developed as professionals. If there is Western staff, they only "coach" the local talent. Phuket's staff are so experienced that many now serve as John Gray's SeaCanoe "coaches" in Vietnam, Fiji or the Philippines. And don't be surprised to find international staff training on Thai trips - John Gray SeaCanoe Phuket is the Kayak U for South-East Asia.

3 - John Gray's SeaCanoe runs only great trips in great locations

With the entire Pacific Basin as our "footprint", we only operate in the most stunning spots. These locations must have a need for the development of conservation awareness - and you can help.
By working with Pride and in special locations , we deliver special experiences - many folks say our trips 'changed their lives". That's saying a lot from a travel experience, but that's exactly what we try to do - take you beyond your imagination.

Take a chance, and step into our World.

4 - John Gray's SeaCanoe puts you first

Traditional business operates for itself. Programs and services are designed to accommodate the business with hopes that weary consumers will respond. Our attitude is to provide you with the best possible experience - and constantly work to make it even better. "Take It Easy" is not in our game plan - John Gray's SeaCanoe designs trips that deliver top nature experiences.

5 - John Gray's SeaCanoe trips start where the others stop

Coron in the Philippines, Vanua Mbalavu in Fiji, Tarutao in Thailand - all are easily accessible, all far off the beaten path. Most companies run easy trips. John Gray's SeaCanoe runs trips that are stunning, and we aren't afraid to find the top locations, and then take you there at a price comparable to or below the "convenient" trips.

6 - John Gray's SeaCanoe's Is A Consumer Advocate Organization

We started sixteen years ago as travel industry and consumer activists. Nothing has changed. We are all consumers, and we respect your rights and budget as much as we do our own. You deserve the straightforward best for your money - and we aim to deliver with the up most integrity - from value for money to human rights ethics and environmental integrity.

7 - John Gray's SeaCanoe never compromises quality, no matter the level of service

Certainly, you get what you pay for. A bungalow-based kayak camp can never compare with a fully-guided escort boat trip, but we guarantee top quality bungalows and similar meal plan.

8 - John Gray's SeaCanoe emphasizes nature and culture

John Gray's SeaCanoe exists to provide a meaningful experience that both enlightens and refreshes your life while you also have fun enjoying a remarkable outdoor experience. If we can't do that, we don't do it.

9 - John Gray's SeaCanoe Respects Human Rights

Integrity must be across the board. John Gray's SeaCanoe promotes enlightened concepts including honesty, dependability, environmentalism, respect - and human rights. Human rights issues are always complex in Asia, but we are proud that we only operate in countries that maintain an acceptable respect for their own citizens.
John Gray's SeaCanoe proudly supports the European Union, United States and Nobel Peace Prize Laureates Committee in boycotting Burma (Myanmar)
