Manta Queen 6 Similans Liveaboard

Manta Queen 6 operates a favoured four day & four night Similans scuba diving itinerary which includes scuba diving in the Similan Islands & also Surin Islands scuba diving areas including Koh Bon, Koh Tachai & the famous Richelieu Rock. Manta Queen 6 is a smaller Similans liveaboard compared to her sister liveaboards like Manta Queen 3, but she also takes fewer guests on her Thailand diving safaris. The Manta Queen 6 itinerary allows guests to complete a total of fifteen excellent dives in the turquoise blue waters in & around the Similan Islands & Surin Islands where they can experience contrasting underwater seascapes of spectacular granite boulders & white sandy ocean floors. Koh Bon is a Similans scuba diving site where manta rays are regular visitors, while Koh Tachai & Richelieu Rock offer scuba divers an exciting possibility to dive with whale sharks as well as manta rays. The Similan Islands season runs from October to May, & is off limits to all tourism including scuba diving from mid-May to mid-October.
