The Manta Queen 3 was custom built in 2011 specifically as a day trip and liveaboard boat to serve the Similan Islands and Koh Bon.
She accommodates 31 guests in three different styles of cabins having one master en-suite cabin, 2 deluxe en-suite cabins and six standard cabins that can sleep either two or three guests. The Manta Queen 3 will spend the whole season in the Similan Islands and had daily transfers by her transfer speed boat the Flying Manta.
With daily transfers and no fixed schedule she is a great boat to plan your Similan Island scuba diving trip around.
She prides herself on her bigger cabins, large sundeck and huge saloon which is ideal for relaxing and watching a movie in between dives.

This is a question that I often get asked, and really it is not as simple as YES or NO.
If you want to become a certified scuba diver by doing the PADI Open Water Diver Course then the answer is yes. In the PADI Open Water Diver Course it is specified that you have to be able to swim 200 metres with any stroke and also have to be able to tread water or float for at least 10 minutes.
The reason for this is not for the fact that scuba diving requires you to swim, but rather it is for yours and your groups safety. In the unlikely event that your BCD (Buoyancy Control Device) was to falter then there would be no device to keep you afloa [...]
