Day 1. Yangon - Kawthaung - The Three Islets (115 Islands) (-/L/D)
Your guide will meet you at the airport/pier in Kawthaung and transfer you to your boat for check in. Along the way, observe the bustling border town. If you are interested and if time permits, you may take part in a short sightseeing tour (optional). Stroll through the lively market near the jetty, visit the famous Victoria Point, the southernmost tip of Myanmar’s mainland, photo stop at the King Bayint Naung statue. Visit the Pyi Daw Aye Pagoda with scenic views across the river to Ranong and finish the tour with a short drive through the fishermen settlements on the outskirts of the town. Overnight cruise to The Three Islets (115 Island).
Day 2. The Three Islets - Nyaung Wee Island - Bo Cho Island (B/L/D)
Wake up with a stunning view at The Three Islets (115 Islands). After breakfast, swim and snorkel with tons of fishes through the crystal-clear water. Later follow your guide through the lush tropical jungle to a small beach, where you can find a lot of beautiful shells swapped in from the ocean. Before lunch cruise to Nyaung Wee Island and visit the Moken village. During lunch on the boat we will cruise to the largest sea-gypsy settlement in the area on Bo Cho Island. Be prepared to get surrounded by curious kids. Bring some small gifts and be overwhelmed by their warm welcome. Walk through the village and take scenic pictures from the Pagoda located on the hill overlooking the entire village. Chill-out on-board and observe the daily life of the almost extinct sea-gypsies. Cruising to Lampi Island (if time and tide permits visit the mangrove forest). Do some night fishing. Overnight on-board nearby Bo Cho Island.
Day 3. Bo Cho Island - Lampi Island - Tar Yar Island - Ko Phawt Island (B/L/D)
Early morning cruise to Lampi Island, this huge island, which is one of Myanmar’s National Parks, gives us more than just one stop. Our first stop will be on the southern tip, right in front of a mangrove lagoon. Learn how to use a kayak and take the chance to explore the ancient mangrove forest. Take a short rest, while we cruise to Tar Yar Island. Here we will take kayaks for an extended tour through the 4 km long tidal river. Follow the stream, which is leading us right into the heart of the island. Immerse yourself in this fragile eco-system, while passing noisy monkeys looking for food on large sand bars. The views and the sounds of the ancient rain forest reminds one of scenes seen in the movie Jurassic Park. By sunset we will cruise along the shore and stop at another island called Ko Phawt Island. Overnight on-board nearby Ko Phawt Island.
Day 4. Ko Phawt Island - Sa Let Ga Let Island (B/L/D)
After early breakfast get yourself ready to swim and snorkel at Ko Phawt Island. Learn more about the trees, herbs and wildlife. Be amazed by the beautiful view of this island and question yourself how the people here still live in perfect harmony with nature. Return back to the boat and get rewarded with our delicious lunch. After lunch go back and join up with the island inhabitants. Maybe try out some ancient spear fishing techniques or paddle in one of their traditional canoes which is hand-carved out of one single tree trunk. After that we will cruise to our next island, Sa Let Ga Let Island. Overnight on-board nearby Sa Let Ga Let Island.
Day 5. Sa Let Ga Let Island - Wa Ale Island - Pilar Island (B/L/D)
Today will be an easy going day. Here we will try to fish some fresh food for dinner before we continue our trip to the beautiful Wa Ale Island. The rest of the day is all yours: take the sea kayak and cross the bay to a small islet or trek through the mangroves to the other side of the island. Enjoy the magnificent views or discover what kinds of corals and fishes you can find underwater. We will continue the cruise to Pilar Island. Overnight on-board nearby Pilar Island.
Day 6. Pilar Island - High Rock (Hlaing Gu Island) - Zar Det Nge Island - Salon Island (B/L/D)
After breakfast we will continue further south to reach High Rock (Hlaing Gu Island). Find some ideal backdrops for your photo album. Explore the various secluded beaches and sunbath on one of them. Return to the boat and eat as much as you like from the absolutely delicious food. Afternoon relax on our sundeck or in your gazebo and enjoy the fresh sea breeze, while we are cruising to Zar Det Nge Island. Tonight we will have a BBQ dinner on-board and continue the cruise to Salon Island. Overnight onboard nearby Salon Island.
