Description

Palau Siren sailing yacht treats divers to an incredible variety of dive sites whilst transporting them to Pacific island charm in grace and elegance

Dive Safari Adventurers aboard Palau Siren will experience Palau diving at its finest while being pampered in luxury and comfort. Located just southeast of the Philippines, Palau is known for healthy and vibrant Reefs and Walls flourishing with current-rich upwellings. Palau is where 3 of the World's major currents meet, creating a giant influx of menu items for hungry marine creatures. With an amazing abundance of Coral and Sea Anemone species and 1,500 species of fish, Divers will be astounded at the diversity of the Palau waters.

WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT

The magnificent, wooden Palau Siren sailing vessel is 131 feet (40m) long and 32 feet (9.7m) wide. Built on the Indonesian Island of Sulawesi, she is a traditional "gaft rigged Phinisi" handcrafted from ironwood and teak. In order to ensure that the guests have the experience of a lifetime, absolute love for detail was the Palau Siren's goal during construction. The 12 crew members strive to offer the best in terms of underwater experience and leisure-time activities, without compromising any comforts.

There are 3 roomy, air conditioned and exquisite wood-trimmed cabin types aboard the Palau Siren: Twin cabin, Double cabin and Twin or Double cabin. The individually climate controlled heated and cooled cabins include: a personal entertainment audio/visual system, private bathrooms with hot water showers, reading lights, space for clothing, safe, hairdryer, towels, as well as cotton bathrobe.

For activities and entertainment besides the ubiquitous underwater activities, the Palau Siren provides many options. Divers can relax on the shaded Sun Deck or sun bathe on the cushioned lounge chairs. Divers can hang out in the air-conditioned lounge complete with well-stocked Bar and talk about the day’s diving over a Cocktail.

Relax on the comfy sofas while picking a favorite flick from the movie network and watch it on the 42 inch flat screen. Enjoy a book from the library or play game. For more active between-dive experiences, go for a Kayak ride or maybe do some Snorkeling. Visit the onboard Dive Shop or Boutique.

The idea behind the Palau Siren was to have a liveaboard that offers great service and diving

The ship’s concept is holistic in that it wants to ensure that both the underwater and above water experiences are fantastic. Part of this is offering a great selection of Local and nternational foods. The menu was designed by Divers, because they know best which food at what time will provide the best basis for enjoyable and energy-charged diving. Rather than the standard liveaboard food, you will be offered a choice from a buffet served in the elegant covered outdoor dining and refreshment area. Snacks and drinks are offered all day to ensure Divers are well-fueled for their action packed days.
