Built with divers' needs in mind, M/Y Black Pearl offers week-long itineraries to Palau, one of the world's top diving destinations. There are 11 guest cabins that cater to 22 guests. Each cabin features twin beds, ensuite bathrooms, AC, and a safety deposit box.

Social areas include a large sun deck with beach beds, tanning benches, and a 6-person jacuzzi. The outdoor terrace located at the back of the boat is ideal for a sundowner and 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 the visit to the stunning Jellyfish Lake for a memorable snorkeling session among hundreds of harmless jellyfish. The Black Pearl doesn't require a high number of logged dives, however, to join this trip, divers should be comfortable diving in current as these can be unpredictable and quite strong in some divesites. Inexperienced and beginner-level divers may find some dives quite challenging and may be asked by the Cruise Director to skip dives that are 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.

Fantastic week on the Black Pearl

The highlight of our trip was probably the early morning Bumphead parrotfish new moon spawning in Palau. We had never seen anything like this before. But many dives were truly outstanding. Free nitrox allowed us to use it for every dive. It would be easy to gain weight on this trip because the food is terrific and there’s a lot of it! Most importantly the dive team and the boat crew were wonderful. We highly recommend The Black Pearl.

Good trip and enjoyed it.

Beautiful water and land. Wonderful boat. good service. The food was less than average. Breakfast was ok, dinner below average. Lunch ok. The bed was hard like a Prison bed, awful. Again, loved the boat itself. Food choices were limited. Pre breakfast did not exist (toast).

The experience was average.

There were very few highlights. The mattress was hard. Only 3 dives a day. Instead of staying out and doing two tank dives, we went back and forth on the rough seas doing one tank dives at a time. The trip was below expectations.

The food, dive guides and staff were very good.
