Blue Manta

DESCRIPTION

The incredible Blue Manta Liveaboard offers a once in a lifetime experience, cruising around the pristine oceans of Indonesia. Blue Manta measures 45 meters in length and 9 meters wide, meaning there is plenty of room to relax.

Blue Manta is unique in the fact it’s a steel hull, which means it offers you more stability when cruising, she can comfortably accommodate 18 – 22 guests. There are 14 immaculate cabins, which are fully furnished with your private bathroom, each cabin is around 20 sqm.

All cabins can be configured with a Double Bed or Twin Share configuration, there is also the option of single occupancy on the lower deck, for those on a budget and traveling alone.

When choosing a liveaboard, we find that the food is an essential factor, and Blue Manta is no exception; you can start your day with freshly baked onboard goods and enjoy no less than five meals a day, making sure you have plenty of energy for your diving activities. Snacks, Tea and Coffee, Water are also available for you all day if you require.

There is a large refrigerator for those hot days, and you want a nice cold drink, Blue Manta can also cater to those special dietary requirements with advance notice.

There are two options for you to enjoy your meals, either in the air-conditioned lounge or al fresco. If you are looking to relax further, then the lounge is a great choice, where you can watch movies, read a book or edit your photos from your day’s diving.

Blue Manta is set up ideally for photographers; she had a fully equipped camera room with plenty of room for even the largest of setups.
