Manta Queen 1

Manta Queen 1

4 Days/4 Nights From THB 28,000

Similan Islands Diving at a Great Price

Manta Queen 1 operates 4 Day/4 Night trips to Similan Islands, Koh Bon, Koh Tachai and Richelieu Rock. The large common areas make this one of the most sociable and fun liveaboards in Thailand.
The 22 guests are accommodated in compact but comfortable air-conditioned cabins which come in twin, double and quad share configurations, something for everyone.

The plentiful and tasty food is cooked fresh in the onboard kitchen and served buffet style on the outside shaded dining area, fresh fruit and snacks are available after every dive. If you’ve eaten too much (a common occurrence) then the dinghy can take you over to one of the many beautiful beaches for a quick stroll.

Another efficient and exceptionally good value trip from the Manta Queen fleet.

Scuba Diving New Normal For Phuket

Hopefully scuba diving will return to Phuket around the 18th June but a new normal will have to be observed. Thailand seems to be doing exceptionally well combating the spread of COVID-19. A plan to slowly start up the economy from the 03rd May has been put into place. All being well on the 18th June, the final group of businesses which include scuba diving can restart. It's absolutely not a guaranteed date. Every stage of the plan has to wor [...]

Ornate Ghost Pipefish

They spend the first part of their life as plankton, drifting along in ocean currents until the time is right to settle on one of our many reefs. How long they travel the ocean currents is not known but unlikely to be long. They disappear just as quickly as the ap [...]

Well just about everything, the entire boat will be inspected for any problems and new features added. There's generally quite a few bodies clambering around bot [...]
