MV White Manta

tab bg image

A mid range liveaboard, with various different cabins and well maintained communal areas, the MV White Manta is a fantastic vessel for visiting the Similans on.

For divers visiting the Simians, one of the main criteria will often be “what are the diving facilities like?”. The White Manta has an organised and large diving platform and a very spacious diving deck. The boat was designed from the very beginning with divers in mind and this comes across from the details in the boat and quality of the diving facilities. Between dives this boat is kitted out for comfort and relaxation. There is a big indoor lounge with excellent entertainment facilities and there is a huge sundeck at the top with sun loungers. The White Manta is a mid-range option that also has the option of massages on board, if you so wish.
