New Year diving tripVerified review

The dive sites in Similan Islands are great and the lead divemaster planned the dives for the groups, so that everyone on the boat could enjoy them as much as possible. We were however very surprised as we used nitrox (all dives and it is not free on this boat) and were recommended to make 5 minute safety stops. Usually we make just 3 minute stops which is recommened (PADI) but not mandatory, just for safety. Many dives end up in 5 meters (elsewhere) anyway so it is not annoying - unless there is nothing to see (deep, like Similans). But… price and quality do not meet on Manta Queen 3. The toilet in the cabin was tiny, so ’larger people’ don’t fit in there very well. The ”beds” are just hard sunbed mattress so it is hard to get sleep during your diving holiday. On MQ3 boat it is important to be in the first group to jump and get back, otherwise there are no food or snacks left if you come back last after the dive. We discussed this issue after few dives this happened to us and they moved us to the first group and they also made some more food towards the end of the trip too. Last year we did same route on Manta Queen 7 which was much better choice as there was also night life - parties every night, DJ playing music etc which we missed on this holiday trip that happened to be during new year this time. They don't sell any beer so remember to bring your own drinks. They promised to bring us KSA-T--shirts to the boat so we could buy those, but never did.
