As the majority of this trip takes place on a sailing boat, you’ll need to feel comfortable with moving about the vessel, including the use of stairs. With that said, sea legs come naturally to some but not so much for others. Your friendly crew will be able to help with the effects of sea sickness if needed.
A zodiac is used to transport passengers from the boat to the mainland, with landings taking place at piers (dry landings) as well as on beaches (wet landings). Zodiacs can sometimes be awkward to climb in and out of, but a sense of humour and can-do attitude is all you need.
This is an adventure on board a real yacht, which means living spaces, cabins, bathrooms and showers need to be shared with other passengers. Sleeping quarters can be quite compact, but you will be spending the majority of your time above board in the open air.
Time on the water also means time in the sun. Remember to pack sun protection, such as sun screen and a hat, and drink plenty of water to keep hydrated. See ‘Essential Trip Information’ below for a full packing list.
Please note that smooth sailing is dependent on the weather, so itinerary changes may occur at the last minute if the weather becomes unfavourable. If any changes are made, you can trust in your knowledgeable skipper to choose an alternative route or activity.
Due to the size of the yachts, sound carries easily from one side to the other and can wake your fellow travellers. Please keep this in mind if you’re planning to have a late night.

Sailing in the Mergui archipelago was one of the most enjoyable experiences I have ever had.The captain,cook and crew went to every length to take care of us and ensure our time was relaxing.The seascapes were magical - deep corn flower blue, turquoise and azure waters to swim in, that were warm and felt like velvet . Snorkeling in gardens of coral among all forms of marine life. The sand on the beaches was soft like talc. Learning about and encountering the Moken people- the gypsy's of the sea was incredible.The bird life was abundant, sea eagles, horn bills, kite. On the last day we saw a pod of dolphins and then to top off an incredible trip we went kayaking just before sunset to look for sea otters- not only did we see them but they came straight up to and into the kayak. I was beside myself with wonder and joy. This trip was everything I wanted and more. Thank you Intrepid for creating this opportunity for me- Margi Gibb
