Fantastic accommodations with very good diving

As for the diving, two dives each at Blue Corner, Ulong Channel, German Channel. One morning (two dives) at Peleliu (including Peleliu Express--single best dive of trip). Siaes Corner also counts as a highlight. The first day and last afternoon were in/around Malakal Harbor, so essentially it was 4.5 days of prime diving out of 6 dive days. The Siren itself didn't move much once outside the harbor, so 10- to 15-min skiff rides each way from the Siren to dive sites. Much shorter trips than diving from Sam's, but still a significant part of each day on small boats. Dives were always at least 45 minutes and occasionally closer to an hour. Great dive briefings.

(1) The boat itself (cabins, living room and dining room areas, dive deck, sundeck). (2) The crew (so friendly and accommodating). (3) The food.

Great Experience in the Remote Islands of Palau

The Palau Siren and her crew did an excellent job ensuring that the experience they offered was both genuine, unique, and amazing. The dive guides did an excellent job selecting the dive sites based on the conditions and ensuring that everyone was comfortable in the water. The dive sites around the islands of Palau are very pristine and the reefs are spectacular. The crew on board the Palau Siren is clearly a very tightly knit group which I think really helped them deliver an experience for the guests which was truly unique and special.

A week of diving I will never forget

I expect to keep the memory of my week diving Palau aboard the Siren in as one of, if not thee, my most memorable diving experiences ever. The Palau Siren is at once well-appointed while also being casually comfortable in a way that all liveaboards should strive to be. I liked the feel of a well-kept wooden boat like her much more than the metal efficiency we more often see. The shaded outside dining area at the stern was the nexus of activity onboard while not diving or sleeping. It's here that our pre-dive briefings were held, post-dive experiences shared, between-dive hangtime spent, late-night talking and drinking convened, and of course, bread broken together during our copious meals together. Though we were taken to our dive sites by two roomy and powerful tenders, the Siren's forward dive deck is roomy and well-organized so that divers needed only a minute or two to get fully prepared for our next dive and then change and rinse off after we returned. I experienced Palau to be an almost ideal travel and diving destination. I found the Palauan people to be warm and friendly even though they live in a faltering economic environment increasingly dominated by Chinese tour groups that contribute too little to the local economy. The atolls of Palau are stunningly beautiful, both above and below the waterline. The waters are very clear, and warm enough that I didn't wear a wetsuit on every dive. I can list the names of the sites I was most struck by, but you can also read virtually the same list in most other reviews you'll see online. For me, the dive I'll never forget was being at 40 meters along Peleliu Wall with the morning sun still bright enough to light the canyon walls and highlight the sharks and an endless river of wrasses flowing in formation below us. But Blue Corner, German Channel, Chandelier Cave, Jellyfish Lake all must be experienced by every scuba lover at least once in their life. The divemaster on the team I was one was Chris. He was exceptional, as a divemaster I felt safe with in his capable hands, and as a fun-loving person to be on a dive boat with. We were all lucky to have crossed paths with him. I'll say that the food on the boat was very good, though not great. Most of the staff were also warm people who we felt well cared for by. However, the captain of the boat was clearly outside of his range. And sure enough, a typhoon was coming in on the morning I got off the boat. The following night, with the typhoon at full strength, the captain anchored the boat on the windward side of the island that Jellyfish Lake is on. Without the protection from the wind that anchoring leeward would have given, the anchors slipped, causing the Siren to hit the rocks, list to 45 degrees, and the captain to call for all to abandon ship with minutes. Thankfully there was time to get a mayday call out, and the Aggressor came in to take on everybody without any injuries. The Palau Siren was refitted in the year that followed and continues to offer magical adventures like mine to divers lucky enough to book a voyage, though now with a capable captain. Palau and the Palau Siren are an adventure not to be missed.

First...Palau, is a magical place and Erik and his crew understand this and make every effort to support this dream, so thanks! Second, even though I paid extra, it was great to have my own cabin...slept like a baby, never locked my room, as there was a wonderful sense of family aboard. As a 55 year female, slightly out of shape, it was wonderful to have my tank and gear set up for each dive...especially for those of us who do not dive much. What a treat. The boat, even though it's aging too..was kept in great shape, clean. Lastly, the staff really went out of their way to make it fun. The BBQ on a secluded beach..what an effort! Warm towels after the night dives, shakes and juice and smiling faces when we returned to the Siren after diving...always cookies and soda/water easily available, beer at night...all the while an underlining concept of safety for us, like 4:1 ratio with dive master, also very supportive of Mother Earth which is high ground thought...The Team on PS rocked!

A fantastic opportunity to see beautiful corals, dozens of sharks in close range, manta rays, turtles, frog fish, and mandarin fish.

The Blue Corner is not to be missed. Hooking in and hanging with the sharks and huuuuge schools of fish!!! Seeing our first frog fish and first mandarin fish were heart stopping experiences. Swimming with 8 mantas wishin arms rich, dancing and flying about us was almost too much to believe! The crew was the best. Always cheerful, helpful and there when you needed them. True professionals in every way.

The diving was top notch with top notch "valet" dive service! Help with donning and doffing your wetsuit, water and juice upon return, rinsing and hanging up of all your gear.
