What We Do

At Burma Boating, we organise sailing holidays in Burma (Myanmar) and in South East Asia. 

You can do the sailing yourself or we can do it for you. You can go for 5 days or 5 weeks. And you can chill on empty beaches, drink at hand, or go race the dolphins. It’s your choice and it’s easy with Burma Boating.

We are a group of passionate sailors who were spellbound when we first sailed into Myanmar’s waters. We discovered pristine islands, beautiful beaches, and welcoming people. Right there and then, we decided to share these wonders.
