MV Sea World I is a Burma liveaboard operating Mergui Archipelago diving cruises from the port of Ranong, as well as some Similan island trips.

Up to 18 divers can be accommodated in a range of cabins all with sea view windows so you can enjoy views over the remote waters and islands of Myanmar.

Although a compact liveaboard of 22m in length, Sea World I still features an upper deck with both and air-conditioned saloon and a separate open air dining area, plus a large sun decks. The saloon has TV, DVD, music and a library of reading material. If you prefer a fresh air environment you can choose between the tables and chairs of the open air dining area or the sundeck, where you can work on your tan. There are also 2 Bunk bed rooms on the upper deck, with all others, including the 3 VIP rooms with ensuite bathrooms, situated on the main deck.

You will dive either from the dive deck or from a tender. The dive deck has access to a toilet and shower for your post-dive comfort. Nitrox is available so you can maximise your time on Burma’s reefs. MV Sea World I is by no means a luxury option but is an affordable, no frills option and works well as a divers’ liveaboard.

    Customer reviews:

    Customer rating - Very good
    "The service was just unbeliviable. The staff went way out of their way to help. I have more than 5000 dives and this was the best staff on the boat i came across. Actualy, it would not be fair to say which part of the service was the best. Everybody did maximum they could - the cooking lady, the captain, the divemasters and the crew. One boat boy was actualy risking his life to get us back to the boat during a night dive in rough seas." - , Czech Republic, 27 January 2014 ...

    Customer rating - Good
    "Staff excellent. Ship under average. Food. Monotonous but fine. Only one deck to stay. Not even soft backs for relax. Due to lack of space the crew had to eat at the dive deck. Place is beautiful and the people too." - , Spain, 15 May 2017 ...
