Crystal clear water
Abundant marine life
Dive breath-taking drop-offs
Stunning reef systems
Blue Corner consistently ranks among the best dive sites in the world and so is known by divers far and wide. But this is just your gateway to diving in Palau. Fundamentally a huge shallow turquoise lagoon surrounded by huge drop offs into the Pacific Ocean, Palau has a plethora of world class sites. Ocean currents feeding into the shallow waters mean corals and schooling fish are fighting for space everywhere. Couple this with the channels that feed into the lagoons and you now have mantas and sharks by the dozen! A true divers paradise
Maps & Itinerary
This 10 night Palau Islands liveaboard adventure allows up to 32 dives, including up to 5 night dives and provides a mix of wreck diving, drift diving and night dives. 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.
Departing from Koror, the S/Y Palau Siren will dive the wrecks around Koror harbour before cruising to Ulong Channel and the Rock Islands and Ngerchu – for some speedy drift dives and Peleliu Island. During our 10 night itineraries we also visit the further most island of Angaur and dive sites to the north at 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 day dives; 3 day dives and a fourth 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, where possible

Launched in April 2011, the 40m S/Y 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 Palau 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 per week ensures that there is ample space to relax. The 8 cabins are doubles or twins and 2 cabins are flexible double/twin and offer individually controlled air conditioning and ensuite bathrooms with hot water.
