The 14 double and twin cabins each have beautifully furnished en suite cabins, averaging at 20 sqm in size. White Manta also has a number of family-friendly cabins with combined double/twin share options available. An open outdoor al fresco dining area and an indoor air conditioned room for fine dining, speaks of the perfect onboard ambiance of a luxury dive vacation.

With maximum comfort and safety in mind, the White Manta is well equipped with safety facilities, cruises at 10 knots, and the steel hull makes her an ideal vessel for long haul cruises as she is able to reach the most remote & exotic diving destinations. Built for sea worthiness, the New White Manta operates on twin engines and is dependable for comfort, convenience and a stress-free dive trip.

The Thai chef is regarded as one of the best in the region, preparing delicious meals, sumptuous snacks & treats throughout the day, you will never go hungry onboard White Manta!
