Description for the dive shop The Smilling Seahorse - Burma

Operating out of Ranong, The Smiling Seahorse offers dive cruises to Thailand and Myanmar (Burma). Liveaboard diving tours to Mergui Archipelago, Surin and Similan Islands.
If you want to go diving in Burma or explore the best diving sites in Thailand, The Smiling Seahorse has just what you need: a friendly staff, comfortable boat, exceptional service and breathtaking diving. Our destinations are exclusives, we don't like to dive on busy dive sites we know you don't either.
On our Burma trips, you will find it hard to spot another dive boat. You will come back from each one of your dives with stories to tell and new species to search in our fish encyclopedias from the small frog fish, ghost pipe fishes, seahorses to the large whalesharks and mantas, our water got it all! We like to spoil our guests with yummy food and personalized services, which is why we only take up to 12 passengers on our spacious vessel.
Beside the amazing diving, we can also organize many extra activities, why don't you take our canoe to the close by mangrove forest or hop on one of the many white sanded beaches and take a swim in the pristine water? PADI and Nitrox available, 1 guide for 4 divers max. double cabins only.

thank you so much to the whole staff for making our trip a great experience.
Perfect boat, food, service, everything has been so much fun and the people are just great!
Thanks you so much for being such a great guide underwater and showing us sharks, seahorses and harlequin shrimps. We just had the best time.
See you next year!

Thank you for fantastic Bubbling. Never seen so many seahorses in my life. Frank- great job by searching all of these small creatures: frog fish, different shrimps and crabs. I wont be able to forget the cirling mantas and the visibility when coming out of caves and arches.
Great place to Dive.
Lisa
