10 Days Cruise to Mergui Archipelago & Similan Islands

Mergui Archipelago Cruise for DivingThe Mergui Archipelago with over 800 islands, some of them the size of Phuket and most of them uninhabited with countless unexplored and pristine dive sites, was opened to foreign visitors in 1997. The Mergui Archipelago is truly one of the last remaining diving frontiers on the planet and is just reachable by live-aboard dive boat or sailing yacht.

A visit to the Mergui Archipelago remains a true sailing/diving expedition. The uninhabited islands bordered by white sand beaches and dense mangrove swamps are surrounded by sea with excellent visibility, sharks and manta rays, and colorful hard and soft coral gardens at shallower depths with a huge variety of marine life.

Here you have the rare privilege of experiencing the beauty and natural wilderness of one of Southeast Asia's last unexplored archipelagos on a luxury 35 meter long schooner "Diva Andaman" with the comfort of a 5 star hotel. With max. 14 other guests you will explore the Mergui Archipelago and the Similan islands.

Cruising under sail is the perfect way to appreciate the slow pace and natural beauty of the Andaman sea. During this cruise you will have different activities to choose from, you can learn to dive and get your PADI Diving Certifications or if you're not a diver,  you can explore the islands in a kayak or grab your snorkel, mask, and fins and get a dazzling look at the colorful fish and reefs.

Price: 123,050 Baht / person
