Amazing First live aboard experience on the Manta Queen 2

Diving every day, sharing the experience with like minded people and of course the diving itself. Unfortunately we didn't get to see any big fish or marine mammals, but that was due to other reasons.

Awesome liveaboard

The crew made the trip what it was! Despite weather conditions that rendered the dives less than ideal, they made up for it with their positivity and found alternatives! Kudos to the boat crew for being the most amazing bunch of people, from the chef who always ensured we were well fed, to the boat boys who always appeared when you didn't even know you needed them!

Great experience with excellent staff

The diving spot is amazing, beautiful views with different marine species. The staffs are professional and the staffs are friendly. This is the first liveaboard trip but I think this would be the best trip I ever had.
