Maps & Itinerary

Blue Corner consistently ranks among the best scuba diving locations in the world and so is known by divers far and wide; However, Palau has a plethora of other exciting, world class dive sites to explore. As there entire country’s waters are a designated shark sanctuary, reef sharks and manta rays can be seen in abundance and there are also many smaller creatures that warrant attention; stunning hard coral reefs and the famous Blue Holes are just a few of the highlights that make Palau such a great diving destination.

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. We then head South via Ngemelis Island and the German Channel to Peleliu Island for some more exhilarating dives with lots of pelagic action.

On some itineraries we 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.

On a typical day we offer up to 4 dives; 3 day dives and, where possible, either a sunset or night dive. The diving day is scheduled as follows:

  • Light Breakfast followed by a briefing and Dive 1
  • Full Breakfast, relaxation period, briefing and Dive 2
  • Lunch, relaxation period, briefing and Dive 3
  • Snack relaxation period, briefing and Dive 4*
  • Dinner

*Where land tours are offered, only 3 dives will be possible

Launched in April 2011, the 40m Palau Siren was built on the Indonesian island of Sulawesi and is handcrafted from ironwood and teak (traditional to the area). You will find no other diving liveaboard as beautiful in Palauan waters and, being built by divers for divers, you can be rest assured that every need has been thought of and addressed.

Welcoming a maximum of 16 guests on each trip ensures that there is ample space to relax before, during and after diving. The 8 stylish cabins provide a choice of double or twin bed configurations; 2 cabins are flexible twins which can be converted to doubles.  All cabins offer individually controlled air- conditioning and ensuite bathrooms with hot water .

Perfect diving within Palau. Unfortunately only less diving in the Peleliu area. would be nice if diving would have been extended there. Also it would be good to make a standard of minimum 100 dives experience prior to the trip.

Blown away by our experience on this liveaboard. The diving has been incredible but the way the Palau Siren is run and the staff on board has taken out trip to another level. If you want a trip in the hands of a professionally run liveaboard with first class customer service and incredible food this is the one. Thank you
