MV Black Manta Liveaboard - Indonesia

Black Manta Liveaboard Features and Benefits


Go to Flickr Slide Show of Black Manta

The Clean, Clean, Diving Machine

The vessel is 32m or 105ft in length, and built of steel making her one of the largest liveaboards plying the Indonesia Archipelago. Look at the chart below for a full range of features and drawings of the boat. She takes a total of 16 divers in 8 air conditioned cabins on regular departures, but some of her cabins are large enough to accommodate more than this on special request. She has four types of cabins altogether: Her one master cabin has a large king-sized bed, two bunk beds, and a sofa making here one of the largest cabins available anywhere here. This cabin can accommodate a family of four upon request. Four of the cabins have one large queen-sized bed and with a twin bunk above, so we can take couples or singles in these cabins. Two of the cabins have double beds only for couples and two cabins have twin beds only. All of these cabins have private, en suite bathrooms or heads, with shower and toilet facilities. Finally, there is one standard cabin with twin beds for those budget-minded divers. This cabin has shared bathroom facilities, but does have a sink and vanity in the cabin for convenience. All the cabins have hot and cold showers, and are fully air conditioned.

The boat has a huge, well appointed indoor fully air conditioned saloon equipped with a large, flat screen TV and entertainment system, and tables and chairs for everyone on board. She also has a large outdoor al fresco saloon and dining area for when the weather is perfect (almost always here). Up on the top deck there is a partially-shaded sundeck for you worshipers who can take the heat. Forward of the wheelhouse are comfortable benches where you can hang out and look for the next beautiful island on the itinerary.

A steel boat has a huge advantage over wooden boats as there is simply more room inside so the boat just feels nice and big. She is very well kept, clean and pretty. The food as on most Thai liveaboards, is fabulous and plentiful. She even offers a traditional massage service on the boat to ease those aches and pains from all that intensive diving you'll be doing.

All The Gas a Growing Diver Needs

Her diving deck is clean, and spacious. She has individual tank racks, gear storage beneath the racks and tanks are filled from whips from the on board compressors. The boat can mix Nitrox and even Trimix if you are so qualified or motivated. She's a good boat for you techies looking to do some special kinds of diving.

The crew is well trained both in diving and customer service. The boat crew is Thai and the dive masters are a mix of foreigners and Thais, and we can cater to just about any language you speak if we know in advance. Special requests are our specialty.
