Manta Queen 3 Liveaboard
4 Days of great liveaboard diving at the Andaman Sea in Thailand. . . What more you could you ask for?
Join the Manta Queen 3 Similan islands diving liveaboard to the best dive sites.
On this Similan Island liveaboard trip you do 15 dives at the best dive sites: Similan Islands, Richelieu Rock, Surin Islands, Koh Bon, and Koh Tachai, finishing off with a dive at the local Boonsung wreck. These dive sites offer a wide variation from huge granite boulders and rock walls to search for critters like shrimps, nudibranchs or tiny crabs, hard corals, rocks covered in soft coral, to caves and tunnels to swim through. . . an exciting experience time and time again!
Awesome marine life
The marine life is just as awesome as the dive site formations. You will see schooling trevallies, batfish, snappers, fusiliers, butterflyfish, damselfish, sweetlips surgeonfish, barracudas, emperors, and rabbitfish but also the ‘biggies’ like the triggerfish, bump head parrotfish, giant groupers and Napoleon wrasse is around…
and there are pretty good chances to meet the majestic manta rays, turtles, sharks, stingrays or even whale sharks! You need good eyes to find the beautiful tiny critters (pipefishes, seahorses, anglerfishes, ribbon eels, boxfishes)… and much, much more!
On this Thailand liveaboard, you are diving in small groups of 5 divers per dive guide and for approximately 50 minutes. The dive groups on this liveaboard trip are based on certification level and experience.
And between the dives, there is plenty of time to enjoy the great scenery and to relax. . . on the liveaboard’s large sundeck, where you can get tanned (don’t forget plenty of sun protection!) or snooze away in a hammock, on the captains ‘balcony’ or the shaded deck, the nice salon with big sofas and HD-TV to watch the videos which were made during the dives and the open dining area to enjoy the space in the shadows, maybe searching in a fish guidebook for the new and unknown friends you made during your last dive while sipping some coffee or tea. . .
Beach excursion Similan islands
Want to be a bit more active between your underwater adventures? Hop on the dingy and have an excursion to one of the beautiful islands with their tropical turquoise water, white beaches, big boulders, and thick jungle.

And by the way, now only Similan Island beaches are open for visiting!
