    Incredible Diving Trip Koh Similan - Koh Bon - Koh Tachai - Richelieu Rock - Boon Sung Wreck: 4 Nights, Thailand in February

    My boyfriend and I had an incredible dive trip. This was our first liveaboard trip and we are only open water certified. We took the deep adventure course during this trip, which I would highly recommend to those who are not advanced open water certified. Our dive guide Colin was awesome. He made us feel safe and comfortable and brought us to see the most interesting things at each dive site. After each dive he did a quick debrief with us about which fish we had seen and helped us identify the fish we didn't know. The dives themselves were incredible, with vibrantly colored coral and tons of fish. We enjoyed clownfish, butterfly fish, morrish idols, triggerfish, an octopus, barracuda, puffer fish, nudibranch, moray eels, a sea turtle, a fleeting manta ray and so much more. Although we did not see a whale shark, we were not at all disappointed with the dives on this trip. I would recommend it to anyone.

    Superb way to dive the Similans Koh Similan - Koh Bon - Koh Tachai - Richelieu Rock - Boon Sung Wreck: 4 Nights, Thailand in October

    The boat captain, dive masters and Thai crew were all fantastic. Everyone did their best to accommodate us. The diving is hard to beat. We were amazingly lucky to have a whale shark circling us for over 20 minutes, close enough to touch. Some of the dive sites are breathtaking. We even saw a rare harlequin shrimp. Tik, our Thai dive guide knows the ocean better than i know my hometown. We were truly privileged.

    Dive-Eat-Sleep-Repeat - We loved it! Koh Similan - Koh Bon - Koh Tachai - Richelieu Rock - Boon Sung Wreck: 4 Nights, Thailand in February

    Das Team von Manta Queen 1 ist mit ganzem Herzen dabei und hat uns einen unvergesslichen Trip bereitet. Die Similian Islands, das Meer und das Boot sind traumhaft schön. Die Tauchspots liegen alle sehr tief (30-20 Meter), Nitrox-Tauchen bietet sich also an. Wir haben auf dem Trip unseren Kurs gemacht. Getaucht wird in kleinen Gruppen (max. 5 Personen). Unser Tauchguide (Tik) kannte sich perfekt aus und hat uns selbst die verstecktesten Lebewesen gezeigt. Wir wollten gar nicht mehr runter vom Boot!

    Excellent Trip Koh Similan - Koh Bon - Koh Tachai - Richelieu Rock - Boon Sung Wreck: 4 Nights, Thailand in April

    The cabins were very small and basic but my needs are few and the price low so I’d have to say they were adequate. With three shared bathrooms for a full boat there was often a wait but again I wasn’t paying for an en-suite so can’t really complain. The food was excellent and varied. The group I dived with was small and the guide, Tic, very good at directing our attention to creatures of interest without seeming to be too prescriptive. The diving was incredible with many whale sharks at different sites and even a chance to swim with an inquisitive one which visited the boat between dives. Another highlight was seeing mating Zebra sharks. Richelieu Rock in particular was stunning with so much marine life it was hard to know where to look.

    Easy and nice diving Koh Similan - Koh Bon - Koh Tachai - Richelieu Rock - Boon Sung Wreck: 4 Nights, Thailand in May

    We were only 14 divers on a boat for 22 divers which was great! Less people in the water and since there’s is only three toilets on board it was perfect we were this few customers. Good dive guides, good food and staff.
