THE SOLITUDE ONE

MV Solitude One (52m long) once again redefines quality service and professionalism in diving hospitality, and incorporates the latest on‐board technology 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 Philippines.

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.

Hospitality and professionalism, with our clients in mind, the vessel was purpose-built to incorporate smart design, functionality and comforts close to home.

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.

OUR CABINS

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.

AMENITIES

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.

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.

FOOD ON BOARD

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.

DIVING WITH US

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.

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.

Diving in Palau

  • Palau is recognised by divers-in-the-know as being among the best in the world. Unusually, there is not one main attraction in Palau - it has everything: big schools of fish, lots of sharks, healthy reefs, World War II wrecks and history, and the world-famous Jellyfish Lake and Blue Corner. 
  • The reefs of Palau are at a unique crossroads where 3 of the planet's major currents meet. It is home to over 1,500 fish species and 700 species of coral and sea anemone. 
  • Picture the marine life scuttling around in every crevice and hole while clouds of small vibrant reef fish cascade down the steep reef. See yourself there turning around from the wall to look out at the blue where sharks galore patrol back and forth, followed by rays and large pelagics.
  • There are also many opportunities for divers to drop into the water and latch on with a reef hook to then simply observe the big fish action in the channels at places like Blue Corner and Peleliu Wall. Vast schools of fish, feeding sharks, eagle rays, turtles and meaty predators all cruise past your field of vision, as you hang in mid-water, awestruck.
  • Innumerable wrecks litter the sea floor around Palau which saw so much of the Pacific fighting during WWII. Ships and aircraft, lost in battle, are now part of the underwater world encrusted with sponges and bejewelled with corals, the horror of war has become a diver's delight.
  • You can swim in Jellyfish Lake with thousands of jellyfish
