Mergui Yachting

Burma Boating through the Myeik Archipelago


Burma Boating offers travellers to the south of Myanmar a serene and seamless exploration into the heart of the Mergui Archipelago.

The Archipelago (also referred to as Myeik Archipelago) is made up of around 800 islands of varying size: some are dramatic rocky outcrops jutting up from the waves, others are larger and flatter, ringed by white sand beaches and peppered with chuckling waterfalls.

The yachts sailing in Burma are large (sleeping between 4 - 10 guests), comfortable and exquisitely designed. When the engine is turned off and the yacht is powered purely by the wind, guests of Burma Boating will be able to enjoy the tranquility of this stretch of the Andaman Sea that is, for now at least, almost entirely uninhabited.

Usually commencing in the ramshackle border town of Kawthaung, guests of Burma Boating tours will be taken to top spots for snorkeling and freediving, and be offered the opportunity to explore the jungle interiors of some of the larger islands.

Mergui Archipelago travellers can also be taken to meet the Moken or Salon people, sometimes referred to as the ‘Sea Gypsies’. The Moken are a nomadic people many of whom live almost entirely on their boats or kabon. Sustaining themselves principally on the sale of sea cucumber and squid, for generations the Moken have lived a life isolated from the rest of Myanmar, continuing to fish with spears and practicing their ancient customs. Some Moken have begun to migrate to live on the islands and these villages can be visited when on a Burma sailing tour.

Photography safaris and biodiversity tours can also be included within a Burma Boating Trip. However the emphasis is more commonly rested upon soaking up the tranquility and peace of Mergui Archipelago travel, sunbathing on the deck with a cocktail in hand, cooled by the spray of the sea and the swelling breeze.
