Transfers from Phuket: In regards to transfer pick-up times in Phuket on trip departure days, may we ask guests to please be patient as there is usually road construction in different areas of Phuket which can sometimes cause delays. For airport pick-ups, guests should make their way to the designated meeting area outside the arrivals terminal and keep an eye out for the Manta Queen driver holding an A4 “Khao Lak Scuba Adventures” sign. Transfers from Phuket run from 11:00 am to 3:30 pm on departure day. The boat departs from a pier near Khao Lak just north of Phuket. Guests will sleep on the boat for three nights and have a total of eleven dives at Koh Bon, Koh Tachai and Richelieu Rock. The boat returns to the pier on arrival day at around 5:00 pm and guests are transferred back to their Phuket or Khao Lak hotels. Phuket transfers are charged at 300 THB per person each way, while Khao Lak transfers are free of charge.
Proof of Diving Certification: Upon arrival at Manta Queen office on departure day, guests must show proof of their scuba diving certification with either their certification card, an online dive check, or another satisfactory way. If no dive certification can be proven, a guest may have to join as a snorkeler.
Equipment Rental: We can supply a full set of rental dive equipment for 400 THB per day. If someone only needs a set or regs, or a BCD, we charge 200 THB per item. If someone is renting a BCD or reg from us, we throw in the mask, fins and wetsuit for free if required.
Dive Computers: All divers must have a dive computer for safety. If guests don’t have their own dive computer, they are available to rent on departure from Manta Queen for 250 THB per day.
Scuba Diving Insurance: Personal scuba diving accident and evacuation insurance coverage is mandatory. If Scuba diving accident coverage is included in guests own travel insurance, they must show specific details in the policy confirming it’s covered. A policy card or number is not enough. If guests can’t show specific coverage in scuba diving insurance, guests must purchase diving insurance coverage from Manta Queen before departure, at 250 THB per day plus 7% VAT. We recommend Divers Alert Network (D.A.N.), a non-profit scuba diving organization which offers various levels of scuba diving insurance for both recreational divers as well as professional divers. We also suggest guests have trip cancelation coverage included with their travel insurance. Although rare during the liveaboard season, weather and sea conditions can at times be unpredictable and trips may need be postponed, adjusted or cancelled. Ourselves, nor Manta Queen cannot be held responsible with last minute trip changes or cancelations due to weather conditions.
