On Board A Classic 1960's Motor Yacht

This season’s cruising in the Mergui Archipelago on our classic 1960s motor yacht has been a terrific success with many a first and some quite extraordinary discoveries in this rarely visited coast, with its thousand islands and diverse marine life.

In view of this success we have decided to extend the duration and distance of selected future voyages to cover the entire distance between Rangoon and Kawthaung. These voyages will include exciting stops at the old coastal ports of Moulmein, Mergui and Tavoy. In addition, we will explore several little known islands with opportunities to snorkel or kayak up rivers into the mangrove forests.

We have now fully receded these lively coastal ports, so evocative of Kipling, Maugham and Collis, and find them full of architectural interest, whether colonial or Buddhist.

Likewise we have identified key islands, some with communities of Baptist Karens loyal to the KNU, others with the Mokkein sea gypsies who speak a strange sort of Malay. But the majority are totally deserted with pristine white beaches, coral and diverse bird and sea life, not to mention the odd reptile like giant monitor lizards.

We are offering just four Burma Coastal Voyages of ten nights. Two in late 2018 and two in early 2019.

Cruise Highlights

    – Sail the Loughborough Passage where dolphin sightings are common.
    – A day cruising through the Archipelago.
    – Visit Tann Shey Island, forming the main part of Lampi Marine National Park.
    – Sail on the morning tide for Coxcombe Island to explore the secret lagoon.
    – Sail to Bailey Island for spectacular snorkelling or swimming in this most lovely of bays.
    – Moor downstream from Moulmein in the estuary at Kaikkame and transfer ashore to travel by car to Thanbyuzayat to visit the war graves there.

Things To Remember

Please note:

    -This expedition requires a sufficient level of fitness and agility to climb in and out of tenders from the ship and at shore. Launching and boarding inflatable and rigid tenders can be challenging.
    – Please be aware that the Andaman Explorer has a steep gangway and a good level of fitness is essential to ensure guest safety. There may be rough water which can challenge those with limited mobility.
    – Launching and excursions are dependent on safe weather conditions as deemed by the Master of the Andaman Explorer and sea conditions.
