Booking / Enquiry

Manta Queen 8 is a newly-renovated scuba diving liveaboard boat offering affordable-luxury Similan scuba diving liveaboard trips. There are 3 cabin types, which are twin and double cabins on the upper decks. These have private bathrooms and lots of space inside. There are also two twin cabins on the lower deck which share a cabin.

The boat is already well established in the Similan Islands, and a favourite among the dive staff. Its size, design, facilities and cabins enable everyone to feel comfortable. Added to that is great food, service and value, and this boat is an instant success.

This Similan diving boat sails from Khao Lak’s Tab Lamu Pier in the evening of departure day, and divers wake up the following morning already at the Similan Islands. Manta Queen 8 trips are 4D/4N in length with 15 wonderful dives. The trips start at an easy dive site in the central Similan Islands, then the boat works its way north to Koh Bon, Koh Tachai and Richelieu Rock. On the final day of the trip, it usually visits Koh bon again and then a couple of local shipwrecks.

The dive platform is easily large enough for every diver to store equipment and to take the ‘giant stride’ from.
This new boat will start its trips in November 2017.
