Your Adventure Starts
Day One – Thursday
Heading to remote areas like the Mergui Archipelago in Myanmar requires an early start. We will meet at the Andaman Snorkel Discovery office at 06:00 to begin our transfers to Ranong, which will take around 3.5 hours before we embark on the MV Reggae Queen.
Whilst welcoming you aboard, staff will complete formalities with Thai Immigration, checking you out of Thailand. During the short cruise to Kaw Thaung, Myanmar we will serve lunch.
Once we are cleared by Myanmar Immigration we will weight anchor and cruise to St. Matthews Island, the largest island in the southern reaches of the Mergui Archipelago. There is a Myanmar Naval Base on the island, but snorkelling the outer reefs of the island is permitted.
We will hold a short introduction about the Mergui Archipelago and some of the special areas we will be snorkelling during the trip. After a briefing and instructions on how to use the snorkel equipment it is time to hit the water and get our first impressions of the fantastic underwater world of the Mergui Archipelago in a small bay to the east of St. Matthews Island. Back on board you can enjoy all the comforts of the boat and end the day enjoying a cool beer or cocktail on the sun deck.
Dinner is served at 19:00, the Reggae Queen will remain anchored in the bay overnight.
