Myanmar Yacht Tours in Mergui Archipelago

A luxury sailing experience in the Mergui Archipelago is the best way to discover the true beauty of Myanmar. Join our yacht tours now!

Prepare yourself for long and wide beaches edged by palm trees and a green and a moist jungle. Be ready for a snorkeling adventure in Myanmar’s splendid waters amid colourful fishes and imagine days spent collecting seashells on the shore. Relax on the sand while the crew prepares a special lunch just for you or if yuo are feeling adventurous go explore the island and its animal inhabitants. Best of all: you have this entire experience to yourself, as most of the islands are still quite untouched by commercial tourism.

 

You can enjoy your snorkeling yacht cruise and not see a soul except the odd fisherman, most probably one of the traditional inhabitants of the Mergui Archipelago: the Moken, a people who live off, and on the sea.

 

Are you ready to start your sailing adventure in the most untouched and wild part of the world?

Yacht

Sailing Ketch

Our flagship is called Meta IV. Designed by the naval architect Thomas E. Colvin, the vessel has a graceful shape and a robust hull. She is constituted entirely of Thai teak, one of the most used woods for building classic boats.

This Sailing Ketch was constructed in 1998 as a private yacht for a Swiss businessman who made his fortune in hotels. In 2010, the Austrian skipper Herbert Mayrhauser found her at a pier in Phuket and immediately fell in love. After two years of intensive restoration work and refitting, Meta IV started her new life as a luxury charter vessel in the fall of 2012.

 

She measures 85 feet in length or 25 metres. That's longer than the Santa Maria, the boat that Columbus sailed into history when he discovered the Americas. In fact, with all her space, you could almost forget you were holidaying on a yacht. The sheer size, and the facilities on board, make for a holiday getaway that your family or friends won't forget.

Travel organizer tips

Flying to Kawthaung
If you are arriving from within Myanmar, you can book online and fly directly to Kawthaung Airport. We’d be more than happy to help you organise transportation and meet you at the airport.
Flying to Ranong 

Another option is to fly to Ranong Airport. There are daily flights from Bangkok by Nok Air. The airport is well served by local taxi drivers but we can also pick you up from Ranong Airport, of course. Once you are in Ranong, you will take a longtail boat across the Pakchan River to Kawthaung on the Myanmar side, which takes about 30 minutes. We will help you with the immigration procedures before boarding the yacht.
Arriving via Phuket
Phuket International Airport is a convenient and well-connected place to fly to. From there, it’s a scenic 3 - 4-hour car ride to Ranong, the Thai border town. Here, too, we are happy to assist you.
Do I need to know how to sail?
No. Our experienced crew can do all the sailing and leave you free to enjoy the wiev. But should you like to get involved or learn how to sail during your trip.
Will I need a visa for Myanmar?
Yes. You will get a visa- on-arrival in Myanmar, but we will take care of the procedure when you enter the country while you relax or explore.
Is it safe to travel in Myanmar’s Mergui Archipelago?
Yes, it is! There are no conflicts in our sailing area, nor are there any pirates. There is a mid- level malaria risk in southern Myanmar and you should take precautions by using mosquito-repellent and wearing long sleeves and trousers if onshore at night (which you are unlikely to be much).
Is it ethically OK to travel to Myanmar?
We think so. A few years things ago,things have started to fundamentally change in Myanmar and Aung San Suu Kyi has been released. She and her party now embrace individual and ethical tourism by travellers whose money does not go straight into the pockets of the generals. We are here to support just that.
What else should I bring?
You don’t need much. Bring your bathers, sunscreen, a hat, sunglasses, your camera and you’re pretty much set! It's best to also bring mosquito repellent and you may want to consider bringing anti-malaria tablets. Do remember to get a travel insurance before joining our cruise. On board, you won't need shoes but you can bring flip-flops or reef shoes for beach outings if you want. We provide full lodging, including
bedding, towels, all meals, water and soft drinks. We also provide fishing and snorkelling equipment and first-aid, if necessary.
What's the best season to go?
season to go? The best time for sailing is between late October and end of April. The rainy season starts in May.
What temperature to expect?
During daytime about 28-32°C. The water temperature will be about 26-29°C.
What kind of food do you serve?
Our chefs specialise in Asian cuisine but also serve Western dishes. Six weeks prior to departure we ask all our guests about their preferences.
