Boat Description

Aboard the Blue Manta liveaboard, 22 guests will stay in 14 en suite cabins - 6 doubles and 8 twins. The interior saloon has comfortable sofas and a large TV for watching the days' footage. There is both internal and external dining areas where you will enjoy 5 meals a day, freshly prepared by the 3 chefs. There is a sundeck to enjoy between dives too with plenty of loungers. The dive deck is spacious and has blow dry facilities and a dry camera area. There is even a masseuse on board! Travelling on several itineraries, the Blue Manta visits Komodo, Raja Ampat, the Forgotten Islands and Alor in the Banda Sea. This is some of the most untouched diving in the world and marine encounters include manta rays, large pelagics, dolphins, whale sharks, mola mola and fish in abundance - you will be unable to choose what to look at first! Enjoy the stunning above water scenery from the luxury decks of the Blue Manta, before plunging into paradise beneath.
