Black Pearl Liveaboard, Micronesia



  • Modern cabins with ensuite bathrooms and AC
  • Spacious lounges and outdoor chilling areas with sundeck and whirlpool
  • Dedicated area for underwater camera maintenance
  • Free use of non-motorized water toys (4 kayaks, 3 SUP boards)

Built with divers' needs in mind, M/Y Black Pearl offers week-long itineraries to Palau, one of the world's top diving destinations. 11 guest cabins cater to 22 guests. Each cabin features twin beds, ensuite bathrooms, AC, and a safety deposit box. The new 200x210cm latex mattresses with 300-thread count Egyptian cotton will submerge guests in luxury and comfort.

Social areas include a large sun deck with beach beds, tanning benches, a dedicated camera setup area, a lounge with a TV, and a 6-person whirlpool. The outdoor terrace at the back of the boat is ideal for a sundowner to reflect on the day’s adventures.

The M/Y Black Pearl features a comfortable dive deck fitted with anti-slip flooring, a designated camera maintenance area with a low-pressure air gun and work table, and 2 fully-kitted diving skiffs. Palau is known for having some of the best diving in the world, with a huge variety of marine life, deep drop-offs, wrecks, and cave systems. Itineraries visit some of the most notable dive sites in Palau, including Blue Holes and Blue Corner. The cruise also includes a visit to the stunning Jellyfish Lake for a memorable snorkeling session among hundreds of harmless jellyfish. The Black Pearl doesn't require many logged dives; however, divers should be comfortable diving in currents to join this trip, as these can be unpredictable and quite strong in some dive sites. Inexperienced and beginner-level divers may find some dives quite challenging and may be asked by the Cruise Director to skip dives unsuitable for their diving experience level.

For a dive liveaboard to Palau to remember, call us or book online today to reserve your space aboard the one-of-a-kind M/Y Black Pearl.

Great Way to Enjoy a Beautiful Place

Very healthy marine life with big fans, sharks and schools of fish. On board, the service from the crew is excellent and the boat is well-equipped for comfort. The vessel does not sail far or move much during the week, unlike liveaboards in other destinations, but it does bring you closer to the dive sites to reduce travelling time. It's more like a floating resort, with speed boats bringing you out to dive.

Great diving week

Very friendly staff, dives were good. Food was good but could even be better. The visit to Jelly fish lake is not needed if there are no more golden jelly fishes. Some cool extra diving activity or experience could be better organized. Overall I would definitely recommend.

Nice Dive Experience but some services need improvement

Blue Corner, Ulong Channel and German Channel Dives, the latter for Manta Rays. There are a few areas for improvement: 1) Food quality is average for a cruise in that price range; 2) Coffee machine was broken; 3) Draft beer was not available. In a nutshell, the boat is in some need of maintenance. However, both cruise directors were nice and very professional and the crew provided excellent client service.
