Liveaboards remain at sea for the entire cruising period, allowing them to discover more secluded areas. These types of dives offer a whole range of first-class dives that would not be available on a normal day-trip sail.

In order to make the most of your Burma scuba safari experience, you need the PADI Advanced Open Water Diver licence. Courses can also be arranged with PADI qualified scuba divers.

That means you have to go down to a max. 40 meters with a friend and keep to the safest times. This is no issue if you choose to go without a leader, provided you have the necessary gear to do your scuba without assistance, i.e. computer or chronometer, balloon, handheld, and scuba-blade.

Anyone know if it is possible to explore this area, Isle of Hops, with the fishing canoe? This is the most costly area in Myanmar. There' s only one privately owned Myanmar based tour operator, but they do Discovery Cruise - not scuba-dipping. The other option is a scuba on board Phuket, Thailand - but be careful, it is incredibly costly, as they require about $3000 boating licence to get the licence to do so.
Very few resorts, hotels, guesthouses on the island and the entrance from the Burma land (with fishermen' s vessels or similar) is strongly supervised by the state. It' s also possible to organize a multi-day trip from Myanmar, with rented skipper and skipper, there was a station here too, they left Myeik, but again not inexpensive and must be arranged in advanced to get the necessary permissions.
But no scuba dipping on this ship. You can see the surrounding area in Dawei, in Kawthoung you can take a long cock to some near isles. But I saw the price of Phuket's livecam and it' s fucking silly!
You must make arrangements with the Burmese authorities to build a tourist destination there....everyone in Burma's tourist industry must..... Rates for 5 nights / 4 nights in doubleroom: - Scuba dive, kayaking, snorkelling and sight seeing are not contained in the above tariff.
I have seen some submarine companies that offer 7-day excursions for about $1200, is there anything less cost? Yes, the licences are 2000 US$ this year, which makes scuba dives there very costly. How strict are the safety and governance rules when there are over 800 isles? When I' m on some stupid canoe, over 800 isles, how many agencies are there anyway?!
but I mean, more than 800 isles. I' m wondering if there's any way you could be living or traveling with the Martians. There is nowhere to go without a license and a licensed tour guides, off the beaten track and if or when you do, they will see you assorted in no amount of at all.
When you are transported or left in your home by an indigenous Myanmar resident, you put them in a very serious state. Much in my mind, you can just go far away with a canoe, raft or whatever....it's all under control, and especially liveboarding through Phuket.
Look, it comes down to just about the rules about foreign nationals who stay in state-approved inns..... and not stray outside the licensed areas> Myanmar Travel and Tourism say that it is for the safety of the visitor..... Excursions by night on the island...... not really... only one I know.....
They then set off with a Myanmar leader after their trip was over. You canoeled the island and didn't get grabbed. Thing is, they were seen by many folks, and there was no further information about their leader (who was also seen in several places AND who was known to the soldier who organized the visit).
Firstly, it is very hard to move around the island without help (fresh sea, meals, guidance, accommodation, if necessary, etc.) or without contacting the people. Someone I think I found out somewhere that it is possible for a foreigner to travel from Myanmar to Thailand, near a place named Kawthuang, in the very southern part of Myanmar.
However, I believe I have also been reading that it is not possible to get to this city by land, but it is or was possible to get to it by sea. Anyone have up-to-date information? In this way most humans take a plane to Dawei or Myeik and then take the express shuttle to Kawthoung, these day one needs the permission to arrive and leave also at this limit, if one comes from Yangon/Oberburma.
As foreigners, you will be limited where you can go, some areas are militarily vulnerable, some the authorities cannot allow you (a foreigner) in areas with which the authorities have no contact/relationship (ethnic tribal drug lord factions that fight each other), so they will not allow anyone, at some point they will allow you there, with a license and a leader, this can also be changed every day and month.
I' m a much new divers who was certificated last year in Cozumel and I used to love it. I' d like to go on another dive holiday, but this year on board a dive safari. I' m living in CA, so much nearer than Thailand would be great..... like the Roaton Islands, but it looks like it wouldn't be so perfect in December?
Hello there, welcome to the beautiful aquatic environment of dive! A live-aboard safari is not recommended for a newcomer. The Cozumel is the best dive in the Caribbean (in my opinion.....). The Roatan is good - solid rock formation, but you won't see anything like the amount or magnitude of sea creatures you do in Coz - because the Bay Islands have been over-fished.
Suggest that you contact a good scuba diving store in your area. While the Coco Island off Costa Rica is one such place, an OW certificate is not enough as its over 100 foot perilous streams that has even struck Divemaster. When you are PADI OW certified, you will always be diving with a divemaster, whether single or with a Buddy, and usually a beginner is mated with an older Diver for a buddy.
Visit PADI.com for diving stores, divemasters and diving sites around the world, they have the information for everyone, telephone e-mail etc.
