Deluxe cabins and standards can suit either for double occupancy or for twin share. The boat can offer great relaxation zones on the top deck with shaded area and hammocks and outdoor salon with a big sofa.

Itinerary features 
The thing that makes Smiling Seahorse special is diving routs. She is one of the few liveaboards that offer diving in Myanmar. Divers can choose from itineraries with different durations. The destination was closed for diving until mid ’90s and is still under quite a strict regulation. Now Myanmar offers untouched coral reefs and abundance of fish. Whale sharks sometimes can be seen, seahorses and blacktip reef sharks and groups of nurse sharks.

When to Go 
Myanmar has two main seasons. The dry season is from November to March, has slightly cooler temperatures. Rain is common between June and October. Sea can be rough. Water temperatures range from 26-27C (78.8F) to 30C (86F)
