West Coast, the only people you may see during your trip. A few dive
shops only have been allowed to operate the Burmese waters. So just
imagine : underwater, untouched reefs, no boat engine to tear your ears apart, no curtains of bubbles to obstruct your vision; at the surface, deserted beaches, fishing villages, amazing rock formations… Do not miss this unique opportunity to explore truly non-crowded sites. You'll be cruising a long lost archipelago, one of the lasts.

Keep an eye out too for stocky bull sharks emerging out of gloom an impressive sight indeed.
The Burma Banks are series of seamounts that rise up from over 300 meters to just below the surface lying the Andaman sea, some 200 km west of mainland. Depths average 15-22 meters on the flat areas on top. Some banks have a more dramatic drop off than others. Guided drift divers are the norm, usually starting on the edge of the bank in 35 meters of water where divers stare out in the blue looking for large silvertip, nurse or grey reef sharks. The "Silvertip" Burma Bank is a flat plateau at a depth of 15 m, covering about 1 square km. "Brutus" the giant barracuda and "Freddy" the inquisitive photo cod are also resident at the "Silvertip" Burma Banks. The "Nurse" Burma Banks is further out and a little deeper.
