Sea Gipsy Liveaboard, Myanmar


The purpose-built M/V Sea Gipsy is an ideal vessel for a small ship cruise where you get a glimpse into the traditional sea-faring life of locals combined with modern comfort. There are no cabins as such; instead, the craft has five open-air sleeping areas. Privacy is given by partitioning curtains and mosquito nets that let you drift off to sleep in the fresh air, surrounded by the soft sounds, sea breezes, and salty aromas, without worrying about bugs. Three basic bathrooms are shared between guests, and there are lockers where you can keep your personal items. The M.V. Sea Gipsy offers an immersive experience. There are several intimate nooks where you can relax and enjoy the sights, and the large sundeck is perfect for simply enjoying being in the present moment. A dive platform and a ladder provide convenient access to and from the sea for swimming and snorkelling. At mealtimes, tuck into an assortment of Burmese, Thai, and international cuisine from the buffet.

Enjoy a cruise around the stunning untouched islands of the Mergui Archipelago, Myanmar / Burma, with the MV Sea Gipsy. The vessel is named after a local indigenous group, the Moken, who are commonly referred to as sea gypsies; you will have the chance to meet members of the Moken community on your adventure. Step onto dry land and take walks along pristine sandy beaches and into the wildlife-rich jungles, swim in temptingly warm waters, and marvel at the assortment of marine life that calls the area home. Trips start and end in Kawthaung on the Burmese mainland.

Nothing is too much for the friendly crew members of the M/V Sea Gipsy when it comes to ensuring guest happiness and satisfaction. They are eager to meet you! Book online or call us to arrange your trip.

Outstanding and perfect!

The Boat without Aircon and no Internet was exactly what I was looking for. The Crew under the supervision of JoJo cooked very good meals and the snorkeling and boating was just beautiful. Clear Water and perfect climate.
