Mergui Archipelago

The Mergui Archipelago lies in the Andaman Sea along the South Taninthary Coast and includes over 800 islands and reefs.

The gateway to the archipelago is Kaw Thaung (Victoria Point) on the southern tip of Myanmar (Burma) a 25 minute boat trip from the Thai fishing port of Ranong. The Salones also called Moken inhabite the Archipelageo. They are sea gypsies and live in their small boats as well as in houses built on stilts located along the coast.

Different species of sharks and stingrays as well as an assortment of small and semi-rare creatures such as Ghost Pipefish and Razorfish have been spotted here. The reefs are mainly rocky with hard corals although some areas have sponges, fans and soft corals as well.

KAW THAUNG
the southernmost town, is where the border checkpoint with Thailand is. It's the starting point for your island hopping!



Kawthaung


MYEIK (MERGUI)

THE WESTERN ROCKY
There is no dive site quite like Western Rocky in either Thailand or Myanmar. Situated in open sea, the island has a long sloping reef on the northeast side while the other sides offer wall diving. The sand bottom starts at 30 to 35 metres and is dotted with boulders and coral heads that are covered with large fans and colorful soft corals.

THE BLACK ROCK
The bare rocky outcrop of Black Rock may not be so spectacular above the surface but is underwater truly a divers paradise with marine life studded from just below the waterline to way down deep. It is another superb site with a tremendous amount of macro life including a large variety of nudibranchs, crabs and shrimps, spindle cowries, filament wrasse and moray eels.

THE BURMA BANKS
The Burma Banks are a series of completely submerged sea mounts The shallowest bank tops out at 15 metres from the surface and the surrounding ocean floor is over 400 metres deep. The Banks offer one of the world’s best shark dives, with a thriving population of Silvertip Sharks. Diving here is exciting to say the least.
