Burma liveaboard, the MV Sea World

A maximum of 20 guests can be accommodated on board, although with 4 dive guides among the multi-lingual crew you can expect small dive groups of up to 5 per guide.

On the upper deck is the quite basic air-conditioned saloon and dining area where most guests choose to hang out. Here you can watch DVDs on the TV or enjoy the music system and library of books and magazines. There is also a small sundeck with sun chairs and loungers where you can soak up the sun's rays. Accommodation consists of 10 simple twin or double air-conditioned cabins spread across the lower, middle and upper decks. Standard cabins share bathrooms while the 2 VIP cabins are ensuite.

Diving is either done from a tender or from the dive deck which features a nitrox system, fresh water showers, toilets and rinse tanks. Your safety whilst diving is increased by the provision of diver positioning devices - 1 per buddy team. You should not expect the MV Sea World to be a deluxe experience, but for those who are on a tight budget or time-conscious and still want to experience some of the best diving Burma has to offer, MV Sea World is a popular choice.

Customer reviews: 

"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." - Pavel Motheji, Czech Republic ...
