tour details

Explore the southernmost part of Myanmar, Mergui Archipelago. It is one of Asia’s last island worlds which remain virtually untouched. Here you will find 800 remote islands, a national park, white beaches and indigenous people who roam the archipelago in dugout canoes. Join a cruise on a classic sailing yacht and enjoy this unspoiled paradise. You will swim, snorkel, laze at empty beaches and discover the islands sailing aboard SY Meta IV OR SY Meltemi.

Join-in tour with departure on Saturday.

After the welcome aboard your yacht, we set sail to Barwell Island where we spend the evening on the beach. We'll go for a swim before dinner and drinks.
Breakfast on board. After a refreshing swim we start our passage to Island No.115, a place often frequented by Moken sea gypsies. In the afternoon we will reach the group of small islands called Mid Group. If time permits, we go for a dinghy excursion into a nearby mangrove forest on Island No. 88. After the evening swim we have dinner in this beautiful covered area.
In the morning we slowly sail towards the little village on Nyaung Wee Island and visit the local sea gypsy settlement. After lunch we sail west to Great Swinton Island. Jungle walk along the creek and collecting seashells on the huge beach. For those interested in Buddhism, a short visit in a local monastery. Snorkelling, then sundowners on deck. Watching the bioluminescent plankton at night.
Early-morning sail to tiny Ohway Island for the best snorkelling (and great fishing) in the region. Observe the colourful life of the reef, full of soft and hard corals and plentiful of tropical fish. After lunch we set sails for Jar Lann Kyun and anchor in its large fjord, one of the most spectacular bays in the archipelago. In the mangrove forest we watch the hornbills at dusk.
Fine dining on board. Relaxation time under the starry sky.
Long, leisurely sail towards Za Det Nge Island with its beautiful bays and beaches. Visit Rhino Island on the way. Its stunning turquoise waters are perfect for enjoying the sun. Later we move towards Za Det Nge's for a last dinner party on the beach.
