Phinisi Liveaboard To Return To Myanmar

Beginning this month, the Phinisi will be cruising to Myanmar again. It’ll be the first time she returns here since her last visit in December 2009.

The vessel’s two itineraries — seven and 10 nights — will cover the Mergui Archipelago, which features rarely dived sites that have stunning hard and soft corals plus an astonishing array of marine life, including sharks, mantas, and massive sea fan forests. Macro photographers will have a whole bunch of stuff to geek out over, including tiger tail seahorses, nudibranchs, and ghost pipefish, just to name a few.

Limited spaces are still available on the four Myanmar cruises this year — with an up to 30% introduction discount.

Regular Myanmar trips will then start in the 2019/2020 season. The Phinisi accommodates 18 divers in seven en-suite cabins with individual air conditioning units.

You’ll be able to choose between flexible double/twin, fixed twins, and quad cabins. Along with her sister vessel The Junk, the Phinisi also visits the Similan and Surin Islands, as well as the south of Thailand on her 10-night “Best of Thailand” itinerary.
