Manta Queen I and II are our two main live aboard boats for the 4 Days 4 Nights independent dive safaris from the Similan islands to Koh Bon, Koh Tachai and Richelieu Rock. You can make up to 14 Dives include sunset and night dives. On the way back to the harbor on day 4 we stop at either Koh Bon or Koh Tachai. 

Please check in (in person) on the day of departure between 10 am and 7 pm (latest). At the main dive center you can make your deposit, balance payment either by cash or credit card (3% is added for credit card sales and only visa and master card can be accepted). After the check in is done you are welcome to use our social networking area to do some internetwork or if you wish you can spend your Time at our Pool in the Trainingsacademy. Please ask our check in Staff. 

When you have seen your cabins and had dinner, there will be time to set up equipment and make a thorough check before leaving. The boat departs with a nice firework and then you will get a short but important boat briefing. 

You will wake up in the Similan islands with a nice cup of coffee and a light first breakfast while your trip leader gives a dive safety briefing and dive site briefing. After the first dive in paradise you will smile the whole day and the schedule is simple: eat-sleep-dive-repeat ;) We have a slightly flexible schedule for the dive sites so we can choose the best for you. 

We will pick you up at the pier at 2:30 pm to return to the main dive center. Arriving at 3 pm you have time to sort out your luggage and comment on Tripadvisor or facbook about your trip if you want. If you have rented a dive computer or camera please bring them back personally to the check out counter. Do not forget ANYTHING on the boat, as we have no chance to get back on until the next trip starts because the Boat is out in the Harbor for a allover cleanup. At 4pm we will transfer you to your hotel or resort - either in khao Lak area or Phuket. 

We would greatly appreciate you feed back either in person or at any of the popular “recommendations” web sites. For example: www.tripadvisor.com or www.taucher.net etc. A short comment on our facebook, twitter or blog site would also be very welcome.

  • Your certification card and log book (if you have one)
  • Swim wear Sun protection
  • Small amount of money for extras and tip.
