Manta Queen 3

Manta Queen 3

5 Days/5 Nights From THB 31,000

A Big Similan Island Liveaboard At a Small price

Manta Queen 3 cuts an imposing figure on the Similan Island liveaboard scene. This very large vessel was launched in 2011 and comfortably accommodates 31 divers. Her generous proportions offer a very stable cruise and plenty of space to relax between dives.

The unusually high number of air-conditioned cabin configurations ensures everyone can find something to suit their needs: Master 2 person en-suite cabin, Family Master en-suite 4 person cabin Twin bed en-suite cabins, Double bed en-suite cabins, Twin bed non en-suite cabins, 3 bed shared cabins and 4 bed shared cabins.

The 5 Day/5 Night trip will take in the very best diving in Thailand including Richelieu Rock and Koh Tachai Pinnacle. It’s also a rare opportunity to spend a decent amount of time around the Similan Islands themselves.

The common areas are spacious and have some nice touches, the hammocks on the sundeck are a favourite with sun worshipers and the large wood paneled saloon is a great place to chill out away from the heat.
