Manta Expeditions in Khao Lak, Thailand
Manta Point Khao Lak is the first dive center in Thailand to specialize in Manta Expeditions. We offer Similan day trips and live-aboards
to Similan Islands, Koh Bon, Koh Tachai and Richelieu Rock
, - some
of the best dive sites in Thailand.

Since 1999
 we effectively undertook Manta Expeditions to Koh Bon as day trips and liveaboards with a very high success rate of Manta sightings.

Because of the prevailing sea currents which carry plankton rich water, the Mantas have chosen the southern tip of this island, the 'Manta Point' , also known as 'West Ridge' as a feeding place,

- thats what the experts say here in Khao Lak.
But why we never see Manta Rays swimming with open mouth ?
There is for sure another good reason for Mantas to show up frequently at
Koh Bon and why they meet up more often with us than with other divers.

A dream of a picture of a Manta Ray swimming with open mouth
Its not taken from here and not from me.  - Unfortunately


The biggest chance
   to encounter Manta Rays is at Koh Bon and Koh Tachai from October to May.  Even some whale sharks are sighted
in this period.
The statistic gives the lowest rate for manta seightings in October and April.. This is probably due to the much lower amount of divers we bring out in this month compared with December for example.

The good visibility   also allows for snorklers to share in this spectacular experience. Many times Mantas have been sighted in shallow waters or directly under the surface, upstaging our cook on board during surface intervals.

Our program   includes a minimum of 3 Manta Expeditions per week as a day trip. Koh Bon and Koh Tachai are also an integral part of almost all our liveaboard cruises to Similan Islands and Richelieu Rock.

Read the next comment of the Founder of Manta Point:
"The best dive of my life was at Koh Bon at the "Manta Point" with 3 Mantas on close interval for a whole 65 minutes and a cameraman who delivered evidence for my concerted loops with one of the three friends."
(Mike, Founder / Manager of Manta Point Khao Lak)
