Manta Queen 8 is one of the larger liveaboards in the fleet at 28m in length and taking up to 24 guests around the best dive sites of the Andaman Sea. You can join 5 night trips to the Similans, Koh Bon, Koh Tachai, Richelieu Rock, Surin and Boonsung Wreck.

There is plenty of space on board to relax with a book or socialise with your fellow guests. There is an air-conditioned saloon with high definition TV and entertainment facilities. There is internet on board although the signal varies depending on location. If you prefer the fresh air environment you can hang out in the open-air dining area or soak up the rays on the spacious semi-shaded sundeck.

Take your pick from 12 cabins: 10 double and twin bed cabins with ensuite bathrooms and 2 twin cabins that share a single bathroom.

On the diving side you will appreciate the small dive groups of 5 divers or fewer, and the availability of nitrox on board, as well as a limited number of 15 litre tanks. You will also be served snacks and fruit between dives as well as buffet-style al fresco meals to keep your diving energy tip-top.
