Discover the beauty of the Mergui Archipelago

aboard MV Dolphin Queen ( Charter available)

Not many places offer such a true feeling of adventure. Days of diving on sites with no other divers or boats to be seen.

Incredible amounts of colourful soft corals, amazing lagoons and caves and swim-throughs that are home to sharks and giant rays, incredible macro life unlike anywhere west of Indonesia.

Untouched islands with equally untouched beaches and the opportunity to explore and find new dive sites that no one has ever dived. This is why we go to Myanmar (Burma).

Coral in Myanmar
Crayfish cave - Myanmar

Numerous species of soft corals thrive on the limestone rock in a dazzling array of colours, huge gorgonian sea fans form forests underwater all teeming with colourful reef fish. Large numbers of crustaceans along with moray eels hide in cracks and overhangs, while scorpion fish and octopus sit camouflaged on the purple and violet algae covered rocks.

For those with a keen eye, seahorses, ornate ghost pipefish, frogfish and stonefish are common on many sites. Schooling fish dart here and there, harried by patrolling barracudas, rainbow runners, tuna, trevallies and Spanish mackerels, while large stingrays and occasionally sharks can be seen cruising the deeper waters.

Enjoy your Myanmar liveaboard in the Mergui Archipelago

Although the Mergui Archipelago is gaining in popularity, because of the large, remote area covered by the MV Dolphin Queen it is highly likely we will be the only divers on a particular dive site. Thus avoiding the crowds and allowing you to dive at your own pace and spend as much time as you like enjoying the underwater life that interests you the most. This is a huge advantage to underwater photographers and those wishing to spot shy underwater creatures.

To maintain this natural beauty, we provide bio-degradable soap and shampoo for our guests.

Due to regulations of the Myanmar authorities, all bookings for Myanmar have to be made 20 days before the departure date.
