MV Manta Queen 2 Overview
MV Manta Queen 2 offers a unique option for divers who want to get in the water to experience the best diving Thailand has to offer. Her three-day, three-night cruises avoid the large number of boats which sometimes fight over the best Similan Islands dive sites. Instead MQ2 sails north to the slightly more challenging diving destinations of Koh Bon, Koh Tachai, and the world-famous Richelieu Rock. On the way back, she stops off at one or two wreck sites to perfectly finish off the cruise.
These 'northern dive sites' are regarded as a little bit more challenging than those around The Similan Islands, but the rewards are well worth it. The diving conditions and marine life at MQ2's diving destinations are the best in Thailand. Currents can sometimes be an issue at Koh Tachai, but each dive at all locations is planned to be as safe and enjoyable as possible, and they always consider each diver's level, experience, needs & requests.
Manta Queen 2 is a professionally-run boat that offers air-conditioning, excellent food and lots of comfort and safety features. There are three types of cabin available, including 4-bunk shared, twins and doubles. During most seasons, Manta Queen 2 liveaboard trips are among our best sellers. Our guests often get to see Manta Rays and the occasional Whale Shark.
Every trip goes as smooth as silk, with the fun but professional team of western diving staff and local crew taking good care of everyone on board. You don’t need to be a professional or highly-experienced diver to enjoy the more challenging dive sites which the trips visit, but Advanced divers and those with more than 20 logged dives will be able to spend longer underwater than inexperienced divers. However, everyone is more than welcome and able to visit the best diving sites in Thailand.
All meals, tea, coffee, drinking water and snacks are all for free on board, as are pick ups from Khao Lak, and dropping guests off at the end of the cruise.
