Sleek and comfortable, the SMY Seahorse has been exploring some of Indonesia's lesser known waters for years. Under new ownership, divers can expect the same high service standards as those provided on her sister liveaboard, MV Ambai, as they cruise around Raja Ampat and elsewhere.

On board this 33 metre long Raja Ampat liveaboard there are 8 spacious cabins all with en-suite bathrooms with portholes or windows, a huge sundeck with plenty of lounging space and an air-conditioned lounge with a full entertainment system. The interior of the boat is mainly timber and is very well maintained. You can expect plenty of personal service from the 14 crew who attend to only 16 guests.

The dive deck has a 'wet room' where you can rinse and prepare your camera gear on the dedicated camera table. Nitrox is complimentary for certified divers during your Seahorse diving cruises. Since the boat caters for both diving and non-diving charters it is designed so life at sea on board is as comfortable as it can be. Why not indulge with Indonesian massages onboard the Seahorse for a completely relaxing diving holiday experience?

Between October and April, your West Papua liveaboard scuba adventure can be enjoyed in comfort and style on the Seahorse. Alor, Banda and particularly Komodo are visited during the period of May to October.
