Burma Boating: Famous Mergui Islands (Prices & Booking 2021)

The traditional inhabitants of the Mergui Archipelago are the Moken, a people who live off, and on, the sea.

Sometimes called “sea- gypsies”, this ethnic minority group leads a traditional, semi-nomadic lifestyle, dominated by diving for sea cucumbers, fishing and bartering.

Over the generations, they have adapted to their environment and developed incredible skills useful for a life lived partly underwater. Moken divers often descend to depths of more than 20 meters without oxygen tanks. Studies of Moken children have shown that they have incredible underwater vision—twice as good as that of European children of the same age.

The Moken used to roam the archipelago in their traditional sailing boats, called Kabangs. In recent years, some families have settled on the islands and fish the surrounding waters from their dugout canoes.

This itinerary will allow you to discover the most famous Burmeses islands of the southern part of the Mergui Archipelago.

Meta IV


Meta IV was designed by the naval architect Thomas E. Colvin, who gave the vessel her beautiful shape and robust hull. She is made entirely of Thai teak, one of the best woods for building classic boats.

Meta IV was constructed in 1998 as a private yacht for a Swiss businessman who made his fortune in hotels. In 2010, the Austrian skipper Herbert Mayrhauser found her at a pier in Phuket and immediately fell in love. After two years of intensive restoration work and refitting, Meta IV started her new life as a luxury charter vessel in the fall of 2012.

Meta IV measures 85 feet in length or 25 metres. That’s longer than the Santa Maria, the boat that Columbus sailed into history when he discovered the Americas. In fact, with all her space, you could almost forget you were holidaying on a yacht. The sheer size, and the facilities on board, make for a holiday getaway that your family or friends won’t forget.

Cabins & Quarters

Meta IV has four guest cabins, each fully air conditioned with ensuite bathrooms and electric toilets. Two of the cabins boast queen-size beds, while the other two feature twin beds. Behind the cockpit is the triple stateroom. The entire aft of the boat is shaded and fitted with multiple dining spaces and sunbathing areas.

The boat’s centre is dominated by the generous galley and saloon dining area. But chances are that you’ll be enjoying most of your meals outside in the sun or in Myanmar’s mild evenings.
