Your trip

The Quick Island Escape in Myanmar’s Mergui Archipelago

Enjoy a sailing cruise in Mergui Archipelago, let the crew pamper you and relax in the sun or be part of a snorkeling session in the most azure and life rich waters Myanmar has to offer.

Start dreaming of candid beaches adorned by palm trees and a lively jungle behind. Imagine snorkeling in Myanmar’s azure waters in the company of a colourful variety of fish and collecting seashells on the shore with eagles flying above, gibbons watching from the thickets and monitor lizards sunbathing on the rocks, while a cocktail is being mixed for you aboard the yacht. Best of all: you have this entire experience to yourself.

You can sail for days on end, enjoy your snorkeling 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.


All this could become reality in a few simple clicks, are you ready to start your sailing adventure in the most pristine and sauvage part of the world?

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 
 You can also 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. We have a crew on board that will take care of sailing. But, you are free to participate and learn how to sail a bit.

Will I need a visa for Myanmar? Yes. Yo need to 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. The political climate has 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 swimsuit, 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? The 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.
