At Burma Boating, we organize sailing holidays in Burma (Myanmar) and beyond.

Passengers can charter private yachts or join one of our cabin cruises, be pampered by our experienced crew and at the same time take part in the sailing aboard our yacht or just relax on deck. Our adventures start from four days up to four weeks or more. It’s your choice and it’s easy with Burma Boating.

Burma Boating was founded in 2013 by a group of passionate sailors who were spellbound when they first sailed into Myanmar’s waters. They discovered pristine islands, beautiful beaches, welcoming people and decided to share these wonders.

Over the years, Burma Boating has expanded and more boats have joined our fleet to navigate in the amazing Mergui Archipelago.

Early 2018, Memories Group, the first Myanmar tourism company to be listed on the Singapore Exchange took over Burma Boating to expand its presence in the Thanintharyi Region.

Since then, Burma Boating & Memories Group dynamic teams are working together to provide & improve the best services and relations with our customers, partners and local populations.
