Manta Queen 6 Trip Number 229, Similan Island 4 days and 4 nights liveaboard.

The first day of the trip on board Manta Queen 6 began at Anita's Reef where we had sightings of Parrot Fish, Trumpet Fish and hiding on the bottom, Garden Eels. Then we did the second dive at West of Eden where we found the resident of this dive site – Spearing Manta Shrimp. The third dive was in Deep Six where we saw a shine White tip reef shark. To end off what had been a great day, we had a night dive at Honeymoon Bay with many Moray Eels, Shrimps and banded sea snake.

On the second day we did the first dive at Elephant Head Rock enjoying swim throughs and view of incredible massive rock formation. Also we were glad to see pretty Ribbon Eels again at the same place. Then we left Similan Islands behind and traveled to Koh Bon where we did the second and third dives- The first one in North Ridge and the second one in West and saw Maldivian Sponge Snail, Octopus, many awesome bright Slugs and were followed by a pretty big Napoleon Wrasse, but the main protagonists were thr big Mantas. We left Koh Bon absolutely excited and went to Koh Tachai Island to do the fourth dive of the day with, Jackfish and many others. Not great visibility but no current.
After the dive we move to Richelieu Rock where we pass the night.

On the third day we did 3 dives in Richelieu Rock…. Amazing. Everyone has to see this wonderful world full of marine life: Frogfish, Seahorse, Ghost Pipefish, Jan's Pipefish, Cuttlefish… After the third dive there we came back to Koh Tachai Island to do one more sunset dive at The Dome.

On the last day of the trip we woke up in our favorite place – Koh Bon Island. We did two dives. The first one was Hin Luang, really beautiful with its yellow soft coral, we saw a Marble Ray and a Massive Frog fish. Second dive was in West Ridge and of course, we had a Manta´s festival. Awesome…. So excited after we moved for the final dive to Boonsung Wreck with extremely friendly Puffer fish, babies Boxfish and Angelfish, Honeycomb Moray Eels, tiny and cute White-eye Moray Eels and huge amount of Yellow-tale Barracuda
