Manta Queen 2

Manta Queen 2

3 days/3 Nights From THB 20,000

Straight To The Very Best Scuba Diving Sites In Thailand

Manta Queen 2 runs a great little 3 day/3 Night trip that takes you to the very best dive sites that Thailand has to offer. The liveaboard will head straight up to Koh Bon and complete the rest of your diving around Koh Tachai and Richelieu Rock, giving you the best chance of an encounter with a giant manta or if you’re really lucky a whale shark…

This comfortable boat offers no thrills but the fun and professional crew offer a great value for money experience. The 4 bed cabins are great for families and groups. The remaining cabins are twin or double share and all cabins are air-conditioned.

The sundeck is a good size and a popular place to hang out. The air-conditioned saloon is somewhat smaller but cushion’s cover the floor so just flop down to cool off in Thailand’s tropical climate.

A great option if you want to get the most out of a short trip without breaking the bank.

simple tips to reduce scuba diving air consumption Scuba Diving For Beginners

Improving My Scuba Diving Air Consumption

Let's first start by saying that it's not a competition. Having good scuba air consumption doesn't necessarily make you a better diver. If you're ending the dive 20 or 30 bar behind your buddy but still reaching your planned bottom time then it's nothing to worry about and could simply be physiological differences that are extremely difficult to overcome. Having said that we do have numerous instructors around Phuket that can only be describe [...]

In a healthy ecosystem they would be just another li [...]
