Dive center to be opened in Thahtay Island in Kawthaung

May 21, 2017
A DIVE Center is planned to be opened in Thahtay Island situated within Myeik Archipelago in the Andaman Sea, according to a spokesperson of Myanmar Dive Center.

Situated in Kawthaung Township of Taninthayi Region, the small island which is directly adjacent to Ranong in southern Thailand, is suitable to establish a dive center as part of marine-based tourism development plan.

With the purpose of providing scuba diving experience for international travellers who tour to Myeik Archipelago, the Myanmar Dive Center has decided to establish a new dive center in Thahtay Island.

The decision is based on the development of a dive center in Ngwehsaung Beach, a popular beach resort in Ayeyawady Region, opened last year, with the organizer hoping to achieve a successful outcome from the new project.

The new center will be opened in the designated area before high season this year, said an official of the Myanmar Dive Center, adding that negotiations for the project have already been made and the body is planning to give special trainings to dive guides.

A traveller wishing to get underwater diving experience has to pay between US$120 and $150 charges based on service plans.

There are so many untouched islands with beautiful sandbanks, clean water and sea creatures in Myeik Archipelago.
