Fantastic Trip

Manta Queen 6 provides a great trip to some very interesting dive sites. The boat itself is a little ratty, but for the price point, it works just fine! The food onboard was some of the best I have experienced on a liveaboard, and Damien (the dive leader) was professional and helpful. A wonderful time was had by all!

Amazing holiday time

« Fred, do you thing we were professional enough? » I was asked that question by Woody (the trip leader of Manta Queen 6) at the end of this dive trip. Well… I am a professional Master Instructor for 17 years now but this question still gives me pause. This team is aware of the bigger picture, they are able to look at a situation objectively, recognize what is going well or wrong and fix it even in the middle of nowhere in the Andaman Sea. They are good at what they do, they have the knowledge that enable them to do the job well, they won’t just show you what you want to see, they will show you how to find it. Guests don’t realize how this job is exhausting and how painful it can be to work on a boat for weeks with a lack of privacy. But this men and women understood the essence of this job: if you build confidence with client, if you do everything to bring the best comfort and promote safe practice then it can be the best job and the finest experience to share in the world. Anyway, as a simple guest, thanks to all the team for this amazing holyday time onboard of Manta Queen 6.

Fun People, Delicious Food, and Easy Dive

They pick you up from airport with min shuttle charges, fun people to be with, easy dives, and food is very delicious. I am a vegetarian and they take care of me. Dive sites are quite good.Though we did not see whalesharks, on average, it is good.
