The Palau Siren, and your home during your Palau dive trip, was originally built by Worldwide Dive and Sail on the island of Sulawesi and is now managed by Master Liveaboards. Designed to take into account everything that a diver and underwater photographer could wish for, she offers flexible cabin arrangements, a generous outdoor diving area, and one of the most spacious dive decks around. The vessel is beautifully crafted from ironwood and teak and certainly one of the more visually stunning liveaboards in the area. Safety is a preeminent issue onboard, and the vessel is equipped with all necessary safety features. Personal GPS devices for divers are available, and the crew is regularly updated with the latest emergency procedures. There are workstations inside and out for your equipment, and the diving is done from one of two comfortable tenders.
Welcoming a maximum of 16 guests per cruise ensures that there is ample space to relax. The 8 comfortable, double occupancy cabins offer a choice of double or twin beds. The Palau Siren has four fixed twin cabins and two flexible twins which can be converted to double beds. All cabins are equipped with individually controlled air-conditioning units and offer plenty of storage space as well as en-suite bathrooms with hot water. For added luxury, bathrobes and towels are provided. The Palau Siren has two fixed double-bed cabins located at the bow which are both similarly well-appointed.
Food onboard the Palau Siren is exemplary. Usually served buffet style on deck with a panoramic view of the surroundings, meals can also be catered for in the luxurious saloon and ala carte for those on adapted diets. The chef’s talents in baking and desserts may have you going home a few kilos heavier. Infinite Blue works with the Palau Siren to make sure your plant-based meals are completely catered for, just let us know if you have and extra special dietary requirements.
Departing from Koror, Palau Siren will usually visit some of the wrecks around Malakal Harbour before cruising to Ulong Channel and the Rock Islands for some speedy drift dives and stunning underwater topography. You will then head South via Ngemelis Island and the German Channel to Peleliu Island for some more exhilarating dives with lots of pelagic action.
During some itineraries, you may also visit Angaur (Ngeaur Island) to the south of Peleliu and dive sites to the north of Koror around Badeldaob Island. Many of the channels have strong currents and reef hooks are an essential piece of diving equipment, however, diving here is suitable for all levels of experience.
