Always wanted to dive Myanmar? Beginning in November 2018, the Phinisi, officially called Cheng I Sao, began sailing the waters of the Andaman Sea with four different itineraries including 4-, 6-, 7- and 10-night dive cruises in Myanmar and Thailand. And, as of February 4th 2019, the Phinisi will return to the pristine waters of Myanmar. It will be the first time it returns here since its last visit in December 2009. Two fantastic itineraries of 7 & 10 nights cover the Mergui Archipelago and take divers to the best parts of these scenic islands.

Pristine, rarely dived sites promise stunning hard and soft corals, plus an astonishing array of marine life: sharks, mantas, and massive sea-fan forests. There is plenty to enjoy for the macro lover as well: tiger-tail seahorses, nudibranchs, ghost pipefish, just to name a few.

Limited spaces are still available on the Phinisi‘s four Myanmar cruises this year – with up to 30% introduction discount!

Regular Myanmar trips will start in the 2019/2020 season. The Phinisi accommodates 18 divers in seven en-suite cabins with individual air-conditioning units. Guests can choose between flexible double/twin, fixed twins, and quad cabins. Full of charming character and with an amazing crew, the Phinisi is your finest option to dive in Myanmar. Along with its sister boat The Junk; it also visits the Similan and Surin Islands, as well as the south of Thailand on a 10-night “Best of Thailand” itinerary.
