MV Manta Queen 2 offers a unique option for divers who want to get in the water to experience the best diving Thailand has to offer. The three-day, three-night cruises avoid the large number of boats which sometimes compete over the best Similan Islands dive sites. Instead, MQ2 sails north to the slightly more challenging diving destinations of Koh Bon, Koh Tachai, and the world-famous Richelieu Rock. On the way back, she stops off at one or two wreck sites to finish off the cruise. 

These 'northern dive sites' are regarded as a little bit more challenging than those around The Similan Islands, but the rewards are well worth it. The diving conditions and marine life at MQ2's diving destinations are the best in Thailand. Currents can sometimes be an issue at Koh Tachai, but each dive at all locations is planned to be as safe and enjoyable as possible, and they always consider each diver's level, experience, & needs.

Manta Queen 2 is a professionally-run boat that offers air-conditioning, excellent food and lots of comfort and safety features. There are three types of cabin available, including 4-bunk shared, twins and doubles. During most seasons, Manta Queen 2 liveaboard trips are among our best sellers.

Divers-on-MV-Manta-Queen-2Every trip goes as smooth as silk, with the fun but professional team of western diving staff and local crew taking good care of everyone on board. You don’t need to be a professional or highly-experienced diver to enjoy the more-challenging dive sites, but Advanced divers and those with more than 20 logged dives will be able to spend longer underwater than inexperienced divers. However, everyone is very welcome and able to visit these best diving sites in Thailand.

All meals, tea, coffee, drinking water, sodas and snacks are all for free on board, as are pick ups from Khao Lak & Phuket, and dropping guests off at the end of the cruise. 

Some other websites show that MQ2 has free Wi-Fi, which it does, but please note that for most of the cruise the boat will be out of range anyway. Also, other websites may advertise MQ2's trips as 4D/3N, but they are not. They are 3D/3N, departing in the evening and returning in the afternoon. Therefore, any website that shows 4D/3N and a 'per day price' is likely to mislead you because the total trip price should be divided by three, not by four.

많은 사람들과 다이빙을 하 수 있다는 것이 너무나 즐거웠다. 3일이면 질리지 않고 딱 적당한 리브어보드 일정이라 생각한다. 날씨가 살짝 좋지 않았지만, 마지막날 되게 좋아서 인상 깊었 . 시밀란 리브어보드는 또 올 생각이 있다. 만타퀸2 리브어보드도 되게 만족했다. more

My first Liveaboard trip on Manta Queen 2 is great! 3D3N was just good for me. My double room was in good size and clean. Every room has air-conditioner. Food and snacks were good. You would never feel hungry. Thanks Chef P’Tip! The boat crews were friendly and helpful and the dive team was professional. Thanks “No Troubles, Just Bubbles” Jamie for the booking arrangement. The beach towel was really useful throughout the whole trip. more

MQ II was a great choice as a first Liveaboard! 3D3N was just nice, not too short, not too long. KSA was professional and well organized. Food was fantastic. Cabin was small but acceptable, clean and functional. Dive crew was friendly and helpful, Thai boat crew was helpful and accommodating. Dive sites. Richelieu Rock is world class. Other sites like Koh Bon and Koh Tachair were good... in terms of sites, we dove the same spot at Koh Tachai 3x. Phratong wreck and BoonSung wreck couldnt comment more, visibility was just 1-3m which was beyond anyone's control. No mantas and whalesharks unfortunately. Most dives averaged 30-40mins, quite short I would say, but we were deep and fighting currents. Booking with NTJB was simply the best move. Jamie was responsive. He got in touched with me one month, one week, one day, one hour prior to the trip and that was really reassuring. The huge towel was really useful throughout the whole trip and were used for all 11 dives we made! Highly recommend NTJB ;) more

The boat is awesome. All thai crews are very fantastic. Food is healthy and tastes good. I enjoy the most with the Richelieu Rock, which is undeniable of one of the best dive site in the world.

Dive sites were amazing and your service and communication was prompt and courteous. You did a great job getting us there. MQ2 didn't really meet our expectations - it's basically a backpackers/budget experience. Maybe we didn't ask enough que stions, but NTJB left money on the table by not recommending us the MQ3 trip that left at the same time for one extra night. more

Crew were very friendly and helpful especially on the dive deck (you rarely have to prepare things yourself). The boat is very clean, food is good and snacks are available between dives. The check in was a bit inefficient but it didn't affect the tri p so not too big of a deal. One thing to note is the smoking; they don't have a designated smoking area so some people will just smoke in the dining area, so just take note of that. Otherwise everything is great, just would be nice to have some connectivity. more
