Similan Island liveaboard diving with Manta Queen 5

22 guests can be accommodated on board in a range of 11 twin share cabins all above deck with seaview windows. This 26m steel-hulled motor boat operates in and out of Khao Lak and promises a fun atmosphere on their short Similans cruises.

From the diving perspective you can look forward to small dive groups of 5 or less. Nitrox is available for certified divers. Both DIN and International tank fittings are available and you can enjoy a hot water dive deck shower after each dive. Photographers will appreciate the separate rinse tank for cameras.

Socialising takes place in the open air saloon/dining area or on the sun deck where you can soak up the rays, reclining on a sun mat. There are games, books and magazines on board for you to while away the time between awesome dives.
