Adventure

Falling under the protection of India, this remote island group offers some of the region’s most peaceful cruising. From pristine reefs to primeval rainforest, to active volcanoes, the Andaman Islands always astound. There are literally hundreds of deserted islands to explore, each one seemingly more spectacular than the last. The beaches are magnificently pristine. The snorkeling and scuba diving is amongst the best in the world with an almost untouched marine eco-system and the fishing is excellent. There is a live volcano, thousands of square miles of untouched jungle, exotic and thriving wildlife and primitive hunter-gatherer tribes.

ANDAMAN ISLANDS


The Andaman Sea: one of the world's most beautiful and varied cruising grounds. Thousands of islands, bays and lagoons, with crystal clear water, fabulous coral and white sandy beaches, framed with tall coconut palms, within a few hours cruise from our home port, Phuket. Cruising on CALISTO to the beautiful Andaman Islands is an experience you will never forget. Or you can choose to discover the remote Mergui Archipelago in Burma. Closer to Phuket, you have the opportunity to cruise the Islands to the South until the Malaysian Island of Langkawi.

THAILAND


The attractions of the northern Andaman coast includes many quiet gems, beginning with the low-key little sister islands of Ko Chang and Ko Phayam, where the hammocks and paraffin lamps offer an old-style travellers’ vibe that’s harder to find further south. Divers are drawn in to the reefs of the remote National Park island chains of Ko Surin and Ko Similan.

MYANMAR


The shining jewel in the Burma coastline is the Mergui Archipelago. Closed to foreigners for decades, the area has now been opened up. These stunning islands offer a true “Robinson Crusoe” experience. Hundreds of small islands, each offering crystal clear water and pure white sandy beaches stretch as far as the eye can see.

Inhabited only by the reclusive sea gypsies, this outstanding cruising ground offers the perfect chance to get away from it all and converse with nature. The abundance of birds is notable with over 800 species, including parrots, peafowl, pheasants, crows, herons, and paddy birds. Among reptile species there are geckos, turtles and hundreds of species of freshwater fish. Because of the Mergui Archipelago's remoteness, a charter aboard CALISTO is the only way for visitors to experience world class dives in areas with names such as Big Bank, Rainbow Reef or Silvertip Bank. Some islands have huge boulders, soft corals and sea fans. Others offer wall diving, caverns, tunnels and drop offs. A sensory and truly exquisite experience, a Burmese charter is one not soon to be forgotten.
