    A top class alternative to the Palau Siren which was out of commission at this time Palau 10 days, Micronesia in December

    This was an alternative to Palau Siren which had run aground a few months earlier.and was still unavailable.Whilst very different in its layout the facilities and staff were of a very high standard.If offered a free place on one or the other I would be hard pressed to choose.

    World-class diving experience Palau 7 days, Micronesia in December

    The one, and only one thing that Solitude One does not do well is advertising itself. The ship is Directed by Alfonso and Silvia who truly understand the business of diving vacations. You can tell by details provided with each dive experience: very detailed dive briefings with pictures, boat assignments, hot tea available after dives, hot or cold wet towels as you return to the main boat after each dive ... the list goes on. Pair that with nicely sized cabins, great food, a camera/computer room, and you have the makings of a truly 5-star diving vacation. My wife and I will highly recommend to our friends!

    The boat was relaxing and the diving was excellent. Palau 7 days, Micronesia in December

    Every single dive was excellent, but for me Blue Corner, German Channel, and Ulong Channel stood above the rest. How the crew organized the whole trip made everything so easy and relaxing from our wake up call to the dive briefings to gearing up to eating. And the food was, to say the least, excellent! Every meal exceeded all my expectations.

    Wonderful experience Palau 7 days, Micronesia in December

    Palau is such a special place - beautiful and varied dive sites, abundant sea life and great visibility - there wasn't one dive that I didn't love. I arrived in Koror a few days before the boat departed...in my anxiousness to get in the water, I did a few dives with a shore operator. While the dives I did from shore were very good, having more direct access to the dive sites without an hour + skiff ride each way (and the ability to do night dives) made me so glad that I spent the majority of my time on a liveaboard - and I can't imagine a better operator to have gone with. In short - if you plan to dive with Solitude One, prepare to be spoiled. The staff are all not only service-focused and experts at what they do, but overall awesome people and make you feel at home from the minute you step onboard. The food is outstanding (and you will never go hungry), the boat clean and comfortable with lots of extra space to spread out if you want time to yourself (find the hammocks on the sundeck!). Every detail is seen to - from gear being perfectly cleaned and set up for you before each dive, to a smiling face waiting for you with hot (or cold) towels when you return afterwards...this is pampering at it's best. I can't recommend Solitude One enough and look forward to diving with them again in the future!

    Excellent trip - diving was great and crew was very attentive! Palau 7 days, Micronesia in February

    Parrot fish spawning several days before the new moon. Blue Corner did not disappoint. Lots of sharks. Mantas at German channel. Cleaning stations galore for all types and species of fish. Remarkably healthy reefs. Boat was spacious and well accommodated. Cruise directors paid extreme attention to detail right down to the bbq on the beach the last night. Diving was so much better from the Liveaboard than from land (I did both). Much easier, much shorter commutes to dive sites (shaving off >45 min at times), more attentive dive guides, and importantly more relaxing dives. Large diversity of dives - corners, walls/drop offs, channels, shallow and deep dives, spectacular caves/swim throughs, wrecks and even bump head parrot fish spawning before the new moon!

    Awesome Trip to Tubbataha with Solitude One Tubbataha (Puerto Princessa-Puerto Princessa), Philippines in May

    The boat is fantastic, very spacious and offers all a diver heart is looking for. A professional crew provides first class service, pampers you and reads every wish from your eyes. We got 5 meals a day, which was delicious and also the cabin was excellent. Last but not least, the Diving was great. Conclusion: the best LiveAboard Trip we had and we sure come back for an other tour with Solitude One
