Covid-19 advice / boarding (updated 17-Apr-23): All crew members are checked at the start / end of each trip with an Antigen Test Kit (ATK). Prior to and during the early stages of your trip, we recommend all guests wear a mask, wash hands regularly, try to avoid too much contact with others, and practice sensible social distancing where possible. We strongly recommend that a suitable face mask is worn while inside airports & on the aircraft on your way to join our vessels. Please test yourself with an Antigen Test Kit (ATK) before leaving home. If feeling unwell & testing positive then we strongly advise against travel. We therefore recommend that you check your travel insurance will cover for positive COVID-19 interrupting your travel plans. We ask that all guests bring at least 1x home Antigen Test Kit (ATK) & test themselves upon arrival to Indonesia prior to boarding. International guests boarding our vessels will be assumed vaccinated after checks carried out at departure & arrival airports. Domestic guests will be asked to show proof of vaccination upon arrival. In the event of positive cases onboard individuals who are symptomatic, or asymptomatic but tested positive for COVID-19 will be kindly requested to exercise safe social distancing by minimising social interactions and avoiding crowded spaces onboard. When possible, we will provide a dedicated quarantine cabin for self-isolation. In the event of severe, prolonged, worsening symptoms or emergencies our cruise leader & captain will be in charge. If evacuation to a local medical facility is required, any costs will be borne by the guest/ travel insurance.

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! Start your day with freshly-baked bread. With 5 meals a day you will be filled and satisfied with an extensive range of treats. Further snacks, tea and coffee, hot chocolate and drinking water are also available all day long. The large refrigerator is fully stocked with chilled drinks and special dietary requests can be catered for with prior notice. Guests can choose to dine in air conditioned comfort in the indoor dining area which can accommodate up to 24 guests, or you can enjoy the magnificent meals al fresco. The air-conditioned saloon is a perfect place to chill out and watch a movie, read a book or a magazine, or sit with your computer and edit treasured moments of the dives.

White Manta is a true photographer's dream. A dedicated indoor camera room with plenty of room to set up your DSLR cameras, strobes, lenses, extra battery packs, a charging area and storage space is available for laptop, cameras, torches or DPVs.
