Booking / Enquiry

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 16 guests on each trip, this 25-metre boat has space for all on board.

Manta Queen 6 is of average size of Similan diving boats, but taking just 16 guests in 8 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 facilities.

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.

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 one bathroom, which is located in between the cabins.
