Diving Palau by liveaboard brings you to the far flung dive sites along with some of the most renowned sites of this tiny island chain. The S/Y Palau Siren was constructed, like her sister ships, by the Worldwide Dive and Sail’s team of master yacht builders in Sulawesi, Indonesia. All the small touches and comfort of our Siren Fleet liveaboard yachts have been included, coupled with new design features and interior decoration to reflect the style of the Palauans.
The 40 metre S/Y Palau Siren luxury liveaboard launched in July 2012 to offer year-round diving trips in Palau.Built with the same specifications as her sister yachts, the S/Y Philippine Siren and the S/Y Indo Siren,the cabins are either fixed double or twin bed, however we offer flexibility with 2 cabins which can be converted from twin to double to suit the needs of our guests. The dining area is very spacious offering a great setting for all your meals. The dive deck is perhaps the most spacious and comfortable you would have experienced. Designated areas for charging and preparation of your camera and video equipment, the S/Y Palau Siren, as all Siren Fleet liveaboard yachts, truly sets out to be the pros choice for underwater photography and videography.
Built on the Indonesian Island of Sulawesi, she is a traditional “gaft rigged Phinisi” handcrafted from ironwood and teak. You will find no other dive liveaboard as beautiful in the waters of Micronesia, and being that she was built by divers for divers you can rest assured every need has been thought of for the modern diver.
Aboard the S/Y Palau Siren we welcome up to 16 guests ensuring abundant space for all divers. Our crew of 12 is on hand throughout the trip to ensure you are well looked after.

Year Round – 6, 7 & 10 nights
Join S/Y Palau Siren as she cruises between wrecks and caves in Malakal Harbour, Ulong Island, German Channel, Ngemelis Island and Peleliu Island before returning to Koror. Our itineraries provide a mix of wreck diving, drift diving and night dives. Reef sharks can be seen in abundance, along with manta rays, stunning coral reefs and huge sea fans. A variety of smaller creatures can also be seen during our liveaboard diving trips.
Departing from Koror, the S/Y Palau Siren will spend 6 to 10 days diving a selection of sites including German Channel, New Drop Off, Ulong Channel and Blue Corner. The order in which we dive is based upon the currents, weather conditions and moon phase as we wish to bring you to the best sites at the optimum time to dive them. In Malakal Harbour we dive the Iro Maruwreck and Chandelier Cave. Whilst at Ulong divers can expect a speedy drift along the reefs with schools of snappers and trevally at dive sites such as Ulong Channel and Siaes Corner. Divers can enjoy the spectacle of spawning bumphead parrotfish and grey reef sharks are known to breed here with many juveniles often be spotted amongst the groups.
Schools of grey reef and white tip sharks congregate atBlue Holes / Blue Corner. German Channel is the place for manta ray action at the cleaning stations. Several mantas may be seen here as divers rest on the bottom to watch the display or swim in the shallows as the mantas approach. At Peleliu Island schools of snapper congregate to spawn near “the Cut” meanwhile lucky divers may meet bull sharks, silver tips and black tip reef sharks. During our 10-night liveaboard trips we also offer the opportunity to visit the furthermost island dive sites to the north at Badeldaob Island, however this will be based on conditions at the time of trip departure.
Aboard the Palau Siren we have 2 dive tenders and can split groups depending on experience level and site preference. Dives are led by our 3 western instructors and groups are typically no more than 6:1, though you may prefer to dive just with your buddy – the choice is yours! Many of the channels have strong currents and reef hooks are an essential piece of diving equipment, however diving in Palau is suitable for all levels of experience.
