MV Manta Queen 1 Overview

Manta Queen 1 Similan islands liveaboard
Boat rating: 9/10 Based on 10 diver reviews
Type: Liveaboard
Departs from: Khao Lak.
No. of guests: 22
Prices from: 20,900 THB per diver

MV Manta Queen 1 offers some of the best-value Similan Island diving safaris available. There are three different cabin options, all of which are air-conditioned. The 4-bed shared cabin is the cheapest and most sociable, while there are also twin bunk cabins for more privacy and double bed cabins for couples. The boat is nearly 30 metres long, making her longer than most at this price, and safe and stable on the water. She takes a maximum of 22 guests on each trip, and these divers are separated into groups of no more than five per Divemaster. Usually this is done to group together divers of similar levels and experience, but can often end up being groups of friends or couples. Budget travellers and backpackers find diving on Manta Queen 1 ideal, especially considering that pick up from hotels and guest houses in the local area is included in the price. She is a comfortable vessel and offers very sociable trips at almost unbeatable prices. There are large sundeck and saloon areas for relaxing between dives and in the evenings. Group-on-manta-queen-1But due to the boat’s size, there’s always somewhere to find some privacy, although most guests enjoy each others’ company until it’s time for bed. She has a dinghy to retrieve divers who have surfaced too near the reef or to transport any passengers to beaches or snorkelling areas.

Although not the newest boat in the Manta Queen fleet, MQ1 is still very much a favourite among the staff and most guests. This is mainly down to the large size of the boat, designed more for comfort than to cram in as many as possible. Also, the experienced crew and captain ensure that every trip runs smoothly, safely and with lots of fun.

Many divers choose to take part in a PADI diving course aboard Manta Queen 1, and these are extremely-good value. PADI Advanced Open Water Diver and Nitrox (Enriched Air) are the most popular. Of course, there are Nitrox filling facilities aboard Manta Queen 1, as well as other amenities to maximize guests’ safety, comfort and convenience. All meals, tea & coffee, snacks and drinking water are all free, as well as pick up and drop off in Khao Lak areas on the days of departure and return. Phuket transfers are now charged at 250 THB / day, but are availabel at convenient times and on any day.

Very easy and very helpful service from No troubles Just Bobbles, with evrething from boooing the liveaboard to cheep hotel and taxi service. MQ1 has great staff especially dive guide TIK who didn´t say much but was super helpful under water. The boat cabins are bit small and smell of diesel when the boat is "parked" thats the only negativ thing about the trip. more

As first time ‘liveaboards’ we couldn’t recommend this experience higher. Jamie at was amazing, from our first tentative enquiry to booking our homeward bound taxi his friendly service was second to none. He helped guide us through the choice o f boats available (ours was a late booking), was patient with us while we dithered over our decision and and was there to answer a whole host of ‘other’ questions we had along the way, if you are looking for help in this area please contact them, you won’t regret it! more

We had a great tour with Manta Queen 1 in beginning of April, with four fantastic days of diving and superb food and quarters, where everything was well working, especially a very professional and helpful crew, good and well organized dive masters, t he ship clean and spacious and food in ample supply. Booking through Similan Diving Tours – all via e-mails from Denmark to Jamie – really worked well and all was in order as agreed. – And the diving really, really great: good corals and plenty of fish, even if the whale shark had business elsewhere.
