A New Similan Island Diving Schedule For Manta Queen 5

Manta Queen 5 now visits the top scuba diving sites in the North Andaman. Previously the schedule took in 3 night trip just around the nine Similan Islands. Well you can’t really go all that way without visiting Koh Bon, Koh Tachai and Richelieu Rock. The new 3 day/3 night schedule reflects just that. Manta Queen 5 now covers all the very best dive sites at a great price.

The 26m long, 5m long Manta Queen 5 takes just 22 guests in very comfortable accommodation. There’s no en-suite cabins but there’s plenty of toilets and showers on the boat and all cabins are air conditioned. The common areas have plenty of space, the sundeck, shaded sundeck and open air dining areas are all great places to hang out between dives.

The plentiful and delicious food is served buffet style as standard for most Similan Island liveaboards. Snacks and fresh fruit are available between dives, making sure you’re fuelled up for some exhilarating North Andaman diving.
