Dive And Cruise Thailand Liveaboard - Manta Queen 1 Reviews
Just back from my digital detox aboard of MQ1 where I spent 4 amazing diving days! More than the diving itslef, the experience was Great and can't thank the staff enough for the energy and the great atmosphere they managed to create. I strongly recommend them and will use MQ should I decide to go back to the Similan. Thanks Kris, Aisha, Maher, JT, Mark and Tik
for the good memories!!!
Des règles sont à observer en raison du grand nombre de personnes sur ce bateau, mais l'on s'y fait très bien. Nous avons particulièrement apprécié Lisa, divemaster d'un autre groupe, son sourire et sa gentillesse, sa disponibilité, sa serviabilité, et Tik, notre divemaster local, pour sa connaissance des sites et sa cool attitude. Le responsable Xavier est aussi très compétent dans son domaine, car gérer ce monde avec dose d'humour et d'autorité n'est pas donné à tous ! Merci
Manta Queen 3 (MQ3)
Nice boat, big boat, well maintain boat, equip with all the facilities (O2, first aid, life jacket etc)
1. When i was in MQ3, its stated for 31 guest (diver or non diver excl crew). It was 32 guest in the boat. Its overloaded. Yaa just 1 extra but its effected when to chill at dining area for meals time. 3 times for me to wait someone finish their meal for me to get seat to have my meal.
2. Meals for me and some other guest and crew not really good. 2 times when after the last dive, just 5 minutes late for the dinner time, i only have fruits for my dinner. Maybe because of the overloaded guest in the boat.
3. For me when im in the boat, with that kind of water condition (white cap everywhere and very strong wind), you should change your dive site to the site that covered from wind. So we can go easy dive. As a diver, we understand about changing a divesite in last minutes due to bad weather. We dont mind to have same divesite (like a 1 dive site for 3 dives at Rachellieu Rock). As a cruise director, Mr Joe can say NO GO for the dive site due to bad sea condition coz got a very new diver onboard. Some divers onboard is very experience diver and they just low profile and we talked about this issue. Dont think all diver is already pro level.
Yes you have a good dive crew to take care all the divers. Your plan is seperate all the divers in small group is excellent. But thing can happend easily. Better avoid it before its happend.
All divers go for holiday for fun, not for struggeling with that type of condition. You have a right to say No Go to the very choppy divesite.
Dive crew, dive guide, boat crew, you all did a very good job. Very professional, very friendly and keep try to show us something underwater.
Anyway, i enjoy the trip with evry morning all the crew shout for wakey wakey wakey morning.
Great time, great dives.
First Live aboard of the season and my first ever, boat - Manta Queen one, shared cabin with friends, 4 days 4 nights.
With a fresh team and being first people to visits most of the sites the whole trip was a great experience, friendly team with safety first and cheesy jokes and a lot of fun along the way, great captain made diving seamless and the team had us trained like pros by the second day getting on and off the boat.
Food was plenty, showers worked, and the team helped and were at the ready to help with anything along the way, special mention to trip leader Xavier, Monia, senior team Ann and Nik for the insights and dive site knowledge making the most of every site.
Transfers easy from airport and back to hotel, payments easy and booking straight forward.
Would recommend and would come again.
They have nice boats, but the whole thing is just to get your cash. Once paid it turns into a holiday for the dive crew. They barely did their jobs and went to cabins or sun ducks immediately after dives.
Thank you for a very fun trip! The diving was AWESOME!! Thank you to all the staff-so helpful-especially the deckhands! Not sure if I remember how to put my fins on myself again - ultra lazy! Thank you to DM â€œBoyâ€-excellent guide! Food awesome also!
It has been a great and wonderful experience on Manta Queen 6. Staff and everyone on board are fun-loving, eager to dive, friendly, helpful, nice, cheerful, and funny. He helped me a lot during my dive especially during the safety stop. I love this boat and the staff. Good food, clean environment. Itâ€™s a simple live-aboard with many stars service given. Will miss the time here just to eat, sleep, dive, repeat!
