Manta Queen 8 is the newest addition to the Manta Queen diving liveaboard fleet. There are three types of cabin to choose from, most have a private bathroom and all are air-conditioned. The best-value cabins have 2 bunk beds, but still offer storage space &  privacy. These are ideal for divers on a budget. For more privacy but still at an affordable price, Manta Queen 8 has twin & double cabins that have private en-suite bathrooms. 

There are several communal areas where guests can relax in groups, pairs or alone. These include the sundeck and the large dining area. There is plenty of space even when the boat is full. The delicious food is plentiful, and soft drinks/sodas are for free. If you want to drink beer, the team allow you to bring your own on board.

Each trip departs in the evening and the diving starts early the following morning. In past seasons, MQ8 sailed to the Similan Islands, but from 2022 it's offering South Andaman routes, including Koh Haa, Hin Daeng & Koh Lipe. Please note that a few other websites might not be updated about the length of the trips or the itineraries. The boat sails from Krabi for 5D/5N to dive areas known as South Andaman. These include Koh Haa, Hin Daeng/Muang, Koh Phi Phi, Phuket and Koh Lipe.

The trips are unbeatable value for divers who want to enjoy the maximum dives & luxury for the minimum money spent. 10 of the 12 cabins have en suite bathrooms & windows, and the boat has an air-conditioned lounge/saloon. The dining areas and dive platform are spacious & well designed, meaning that everyone feels safe & comfortable at all times. There is also free Wi-Fi, when in range.

The newest & most-luxurious addition to the Manta Queen liveaboard fleet, MQ8 is often fully booked. This is mainly due to the great value. In addition to good-value PADI courses, Nitrox, and delicious food, the whole vibe on board is relaxing & fun. Trips depart from Krabi Marina in the evening after you have been picked up from your hotel or Phuket airport.
