Similan Islands liveaboard diving boats come in different sizes, and with various levels of comfort at a range of prices. Manta Queen 6 ticks nearly all the right boxes for those who want Similan & Richelieu Rock diving safaris. The trips are competitively priced, the cabins are ideal for solo travelers, friends and even couples, and all are air-conditioned and have en suite* bathroom facilities. With no more than 14 guests on each trip, this 25-metre boat has space for all on board. There is also free Wi-Fi at the start and end of the cruise (due to it relying on the cellular signal).

Manta Queen 6 is of average size of Similan diving boats, but taking just 14 guests in 7 cabins means that there is more space for each person to socialize in groups or find somewhere to chill alone. The boat has a wooden monohull, and all the safety and diving features necessary for all levels of scuba diver. This includes Nitrox.

MV-Manta-Queen-6-Dive-deckOn top great-value, luxury diving cruises to Thailand’s best dive sites, Manta Queen 6 also offers free pick up and drop off from local hotels and resorts. Like all our other Similan liveaboard dive boats, Divemaster guides, weights & belts, and 12 litre air tanks are included in the prices, as are all meals, snacks, fruits, tea & coffee, and drinking water. In contrast to most other 4D/4N diving cruises, those aboard Manta Queen 6 can enjoy an extra dive on the final day. Most of the 4D/4N cruises have 14 dives, but on Manta Queen 6, there are 15. Please be aware that you may see Manta Queen 6's trips elsewhere on the internet to be 5D/4N (five days & four nights). This is untrue and misleading. Although the trips do span five calendar dates, your first day is an evening departure with no diving and just a light meal. We prefer to only count/show diving days, and so do all honest agents.

All in all, this is a wonderful boat that offers excellent-value trips. The small group of divers on board enjoy sociable surface intervals and evenings under starlit nights, as well as 15 dives at the best diving sites in Thailand.

*Please note that Manta Queen 6's cabins are technically 'en suite' because there is just one door between bedroom and bathroom, but in fact two cabins share each bathroom, which is located in between the cabins.

At the end of the trip, everyone is brought back to the dive centre, then taken to hotels in the area.

Do not believe other websites that show the trips to be 5D/4N, because they are not. With an evening departure and the return less than 96 hours later, these trips are 4D/4N.

The rooms and bathroom are a bit smaller than I expected. Other than that, it’s perfect live aboard experience. Very nice and helpful boat crews. Dive instructors are very professional and informative.
