    Itinerary

    Day 1 - Phuket

    Arrive in Phuket and do as much or as little as you like.

    Please check the notice board at the hotel's reception area for details of your transfer pick-up time for day 2 as this can change at late notice.

    Get out and explore the city

    Day 2 - Ranong - Thae Yae Island

    We meet our transfer guide in the hotel lobby at 7am for the transfer north from Phuket to Ranong [near to the border with Burma]. The drive is approx 5 hours. On arrival in Ranong we transfer to Sapanpla Immigration Pier where we exit Thailand and travel by long boat to board our yacht which will be moored offshore. Your Burmese visas will be processed on board the yacht by our Burmese Custom’s agent.
    The beauty of sailing is that each day is unique and, while we have a destination to reach, if the weather changes or something takes the group’s fancy, we can be flexible on the day's itinerary.
    Once our processing has taken place we’ll set sail for Thae Yae Island. The isolated Myeik(Mergui) Archipelago embraces at least 800 islands, many deserted, making this a region for true explorers. The islands' limestone cliffs and dense rainforest interiors meet with vast mangrove stretches and truly untouched white sand beaches.
    Underwater, the scenes are just as refreshing with a diversity of marine life and stunning coral reefs.
    Explore the southern beach of Thae Yae Island and maybe try sea kayaking, snorkelling or just marvel at the natural beauty of this incredibly remote part of the world.

    Breakfast | Lunch

    Day 3 - 7 - Sailing Myeik (Mergui) Archipelago

    Head north towards Palu Bada, a group of islands with great snorkelling.  Drop anchor for the night in a protected bay and take a short jungle walk to the other side of the island.

    Sailing a few hours north to Bo Cho island and get a taste of village life.  Ma Kyone Galet is the largest island village in the southern Mergui archipelago and a local community of Moken or 'sea gypsies'.  Once a permanent nomadic, seafaring people, the Moken spent almost all their time floating on small wooden boats and diving for shellfish.  Like many ethnic minorities in Burma, most Moken were forced to relocate to onshore sites during the 1990s.
    We then set sail for Lampi Island a beautiful long white sand beach where we can kayak up a river through mangroves.

    Set sail today to Swinton Island, arguably one of the most beautiful beaches in the archipelago.    This is a top spot for snorkelling and tonight we can relax,  swap travel tales and enjoy the days catch around a campfire on the beach.

    Sail today to Kho Yinn Khwa Island (Maclead Island) and be dazzled again by its picture perfect beach.  One of the larger islands and home to a small resort we can take a guided hike for a fabulous view across the islands (1.5 hours),  The climb is steep and challenging so  please bring suitable footwear for this hike (no sandals or flip flops).  

    Sail east to Myuak Ni Island  island, and it's picture perfect, long and isolated beach.  Why not kayak or snorkel in the surrounding turquoise waters?  We then continue on to Lighthouse Island, where we anchor and settle in for one more incredible sunset and a relaxing final night aboard.

    Breakfast | Lunch | Dinner

    Day 8 - Ranong - Phuket

    Leaving very early we sail back to Ranong.
    We say goodbye to your skipper and cook and travel with our guide by long tail boat and reenter Thailand at Ranong. From here transfer by vehicle back to Phuket. Travellers will be unaccompanied for this leg of the journey. We hope to be back in Phuket by 6pm.

    Safety Information

    Petty Theft & Personal safety:
    While travelling there is always the risk of pick-pocketing and petty theft, particularly in the more touristy cities. We recommend that you exercise caution when walking alone at night and encourage you to walk together and only on main, well-lit thoroughfares. Be particularly vigilant on public transport. Simple measures like carrying your day pack on your front, not hanging your bag over the back of your chair and wearing a money belt will reduce any chance that your valuables should go missing.
    Water safety at sea:
    Travellers that are able and confident swimmers will be able to enjoy swimming & snorkelling off the boat, but please always note the skipper's advice and instructions on when and where to swim and what precautions to consider. Travellers who are not able to swim are certainly welcome on this trip, but you will be required to wear a life jacket when we are sailing.
