The Motoryacht(M/Y) MANTA is owned by a marine science non-profit organization of the same name, MANTA, which stands for the Marine Science And Nautical Training Academy (www.manta-online.org). We acquired this yacht as a donation, and now offer this classic yacht for charter for custom and diverse high-end yacht experiences. These charters help fund the organization, and helps allows us to make this vessel available to educators and researchers in marine biology or geology to use as our floating teaching and research platform.  Since our crew has a professional marine biologist, passengers will receive environmental, conservation, and biology education while they cruise. Please explore our website to learn about the experiences available on M/Y MANTA for your custom event on a cruise around the harbor, multi-day excursion, or a dockside event, all with your choice of a number of elite caterers or chefs that can provide an unforgettable dining experience to pair with the beautiful and unique venue and cruise scenery.

Proceeds from charters and events go to support MANTA’s marine science mission, to provide high school and college students a unique opportunity to learn about the marine environment, and to participate in marine science research and conservation projects. Our Caribbean study abroad programs provide an intensive, experienced-based field study program in fundamental and applied marine science and the principles and practices of the nautical sciences.
