Liveaboard diving trips in Mexico with MV Sea Escape - photo courtesy of divingworld.nl

Accommodating up to 18 guests in 9 double or twin bed cabins, most with ensuite bathrooms, MV Sea Escape is a comfortable and spacious liveaboard. There is a cosy saloon area on the main deck with TV, DVD and music system, as well as a dedicated computer station. There is a library of movies and books to help pass the time on the longer crossings.

Meals are served in the dining area of the saloon on the main deck. This is the main place to socialise and chat with fellow guests, as well on the partially covered sun deck. Here you can sunbathe on the loungers or take in the views of the remote Pacific islands MV Sea Escape visits. Individual lost diver devices and an onboard recompression chamber are proof that you will be in good hands with MV Sea Escape.
