Awesome and diversified dive sites: diving in Mergui Archipelago, off the West coast of Myanmar (also known as Burma) is an amazing experience especially for experienced divers.

The sites are very diverse with caves, plateaux, soft and hard corals very divers macro life (Harlequin Shrimps, lobsters, nudis, ghost pipe fish, seahorses, Frog fish are found on every trip!
Swim-through, pinnacles, islands, soft coral, hard coral make dramatic setting .

Small stuff: harlequin shrimps, spanish dancers, ghost pipe fish, frog fish etc.. make lovely pictures
Big stuff: whale sharks, mantas, eagle rays... the wow factor bonus.

Western Rocky, Shark Cave, Black Rock, Seafan forest, North Twin are some of the best dive sites I have ever dove.
