Burma Dive Sites
The Mergui Archipelago is a group of islands in the far south of Myanmar (Burma). This archipelago consists of over eight hundred islands, all of which vary in size, from little pinnacles breaking the surface to large areas of land mass of over hundreds of square kilometres.
Diving Myanmar / Burma, which is really now known mainly as Myanmar, is becoming more and more popular with each season. The Mergui Archipelago is visited by liveaboards based in or around or Tablamu – Khao Lak or Ranong.
The dive sites cover a massive area of the Andaman Sea, and invariably these Burma liveaboard trips are of a duration of between six and ten days in length.
The islands of Mergui are stunning and pristine, populated by a small indigenous group of people called the Moken sea gypsies. These gypsies have been here for hundreds of years and make their living from the seas.
One of the biggest attractions for Scuba divers is the opportunity to spot large pelagic fish such as the many different species of Sharks and Rays which are found here.
Most if not all of the dive spots you will visit, we can pretty much guarantee that your boat will be the only one in the area, ensuring no crowded dive sites, and it is even possible to dive on virgin reefs which have been unseen anyone form the outside world before.
