Description

Dive Palau with the MV Solitude One in arguably one of the world's best diving spots in the World

You will dive the amazing sites of Palau or the beautiful crystal clear waters of the Philippines in comfort and with ease. Groups are kept small and the experienced and professional Dive Guides are always on hand to assist with any issues. Hospitality and professionalism, with our clients in mind, the vessel was purpose-built to incorporate smart design, functionality and comforts close to home.

What you can Expect

MV Solitude One (52m long) once again redefines quality service and professionalism in diving hospitality, and incorporates the latest on‐board technologies for safety and diving. The liveaboard is a beautiful Yacht, a platform for the restless modern-day Adventurers who want to get a glimpse of the underwater beauty of Palau and the Phillipines. 

The huge dimensions of this Palau liveaboard mean that you will never feel cramped and everything has a bright and roomy feeling. The Cabins and en-suite bathrooms are larger than most liveaboards and the Saloon, outdoor shaded areas and Sun Deck also enjoy an impressive amount of space. If you want to be sociable you can, but equally if you want to find a quiet spot for a bit of solitude, then that is always possible too.

Solitude One has a number of excellent features that very few other liveaboards can boast.

The cabins all have a flat screen TV with USB media support (so you can enjoy your own entertainment) and a networked system so you can access the library of movies and TV shows. The electrical sockets are universal and have USB charging ports. Taller guests, for whom liveaboard boats can sometimes be (quite literally) a headache, literally, will appreciate the added headroom throughout and the extra long mattresses. Features that Photographers will love include 2 camera rinse tanks, air gun and special towels for cameras, plus of course the complete Digital Studio with computer stations and power surge protection. 

Food on board MV Solitude One is for divers who like to enjoy great dishes

There’s an outdoor Dining Area where carefully planned meals are designed to enhance your experience during the voyage. There is something for everyone on offer, but the Chef is also able to cater for any special dietary requirements if given sufficient notice.

On the very top of this Palau Liveaboard is a comfortable Sun-deck for those needing a dose of vitamin D and a breath of sea air. At the end of the day there is also a jacuzzi to relax in with a drink of your choice.

To ensure your Dive Safari Adventure becomes a memorable experience, every aspect of MV Solitude One's design, itinerary and menu have received detailed attention. The diving, the leisure activities and the luxury and comfort found aboard the MV Solitude One easily compare to those of any hotel on land.

The MV Solitude One's itineraries were arranged so the dive sites can be visited at the perfect time. Moreover, it differentiates itself from other liveaboards by providing the best in personalized accommodation, services and facilities.
