The Mergui Archipelago (Myanmar/Burma) is unique both above the water as well as below. There are over nine hundred mostly uninhabited islands scattered over an area of some 12000 square miles.
You will never forget the breathtaking scenery with virgin rainforests along diving on uncrowded reefs.
Mergui Archipelago - Burma/Myanmar
The Mergui Archipelago was strictly closed to all foreigners until in 1997. Faraway Yachting was one of the first companies granted permission to undertake adventure diving charters in Burma / Myanmar.
Since then we have built up a wealth of knowledge in the area that we enjoy sharing with our guests Because of The Mergui Archipelago's isolation it is only superficially charted; the interior of many of the islands has never been surveyed at all. Wildlife is abundant, as is the vegetation on the rain forest clad islands. Beaches are clean and stretch for miles. Pure nature!
Our adventure sailing and diving charters in Myanmar take you to remote areas where you will rarely see any other yacht. The only humans you are likely to encounter are the friendly Moken Sea Gypsies who roam the area in their small boats, like their ancestors have done for centuries.
Scuba Diving the pristine reefs of the Mergui Archipelago
Under water there is world class diving to be found with reefs, drop offs, sea mounts, caves and tunnels, which sometimes cut right through islands with exits on both sides.
There is enough to keep every adventure diver very happy. Fish life is abundant.
Scuba diving in the Mergui Archipelago usually means diving with sharks, manta rays and large swarms of eagle rays.
The occasional whale shark can also be encountered. We have five yachts fully equipped for diving charters in Burma .
