Itineraries

Mergui Archipelago

9 Days - 8 Nights

Much of this remote archipelago remains unexplored by anyone apart from the nomadic Moken, the local sea gypsies

THE BEAUTIFUL ISLANDS OF MYANMAR’S MERGUI ARCHIPELAGO ARE ONE OF THE WORLD’S LAST REMAINING UNTOUCHED PARADISES

Phuket, Thailand

Day 1

Arrive at Phuket International airport in Thailand where after a 20 minute transfer by private vehicle you will be taken by tender to board Lamima. Once onboard, settle into your cabin, relax on the sundeck or enjoy some of the watersports available before we set sail for an overnight cruise to Myanmar. 

Mergui Archipelago, Myanmar

Day 2

Enjoy your first morning aboard Lamima with a leisurely breakfast whilst we clear immigration. Once formalities have been completed, continue to our first destination in the Mergui Archipelago. Drop anchor for the night and take the tender to a nearby deserted island where the crew have set up camp on the beach and are ready to serve dinner and drinks under the stars.

Lambi Kyun

Day 3

Raise anchor and set sail for Lambi Kyun looking out for Moken Sea Gypsies along the way. These local inhabitants of the
 Mergui Archipelago live a very simple way of life in small floating communities and are renowned for their friendliness. Head ashore Lambi Kyun, a densely forested island which offers excellent opportunities to observe local flora and fauna and the great chance to see Barking Deer!  

Kyun Pila

Day 4

The next day we sail to Kyun Pila, an island paradise covered with

thick rainforest and home to noisy hornbills. Explore some of the many secluded bays on a paddleboard or simply relax on your

very own private beach while the crew prepare a barbeque lunch. Afterwards, laze in the shade of the rainforest canopy or take to the crystal clear waters on Lamima’s jetskis.

Lord Louchborough

Day 5

In the morning cruise to the jungle covered island of Lord Loughborough where there are some great sites to catch a glimpse of manta rays while diving or snorkeling. In the afternoon, there will be an opportunity to visit a nearby fishing village to enjoy a friendly introduction to the locals and to learn about the traditional boat building techniques that are still practiced today.

Macleod Island

Day 6

Sail to MacLeod Island and head ashore to explore some of the rainforest trails laid down across the island. Macleod is renowned for its excellent birdwatching and abundance of tropical plants and a climb to the island’s highest peak offers spectacular panoramic views. Explore the coastal caves and mangroves by sea kayak or dive among barracuda and trevally while the crew set up camp on the beach.

Zadetkalay Islands, Myanmar

Day 7

After an early morning cruise to Kawthaung to clear immigration in preparation for our departure from Myanmar’s waters, we continue to the Zadetkalay Islands where you can spend the day swimming in the crystal clear waters and relaxing on deserted white sand beaches. For something a bit more energetic, you can explore the area by paddleboard or even a jukung, one of Lamima’s traditional dugout canoes. 

Surin Islands, Thailand

Day 8

This area offers a huge diversity of marine life that can be 

observed by diving or snorkeling. Interesting hike’s are possible as well in this protected area.

Phuket

Day 9

After an overnight sailing back to Thailand, enjoy your final breakfast on board of Lamima before transferring back to Phuket  and onward by private vehicle to Phuket International Airport to check in for your flight back.
