Unreal adventure!

We saw Mantas, sailfish, eagle rays, sea snakes and so many sharks. There were too many highlights to name

Palau diving is incredible - up there with Raja Ampat and Borneo! And Solitude One is an incredible boat to go with. The staff were friendly and accommodating, food was delicious (albeit needing a little more vege variety), and the boat was clean, and relaxing

Great diving from a large ship

Everything went according to plan. Of a maximum of 22 divers, there were only 14 of us. We had lots of room on the anyway spacious vessel. The cruise is very well organized, the dive guides are helpful and knowledgable. There are two dive boats (called "skiffs"), your gear stays on these boats all the time, and all dives are done from these boats. The cruise was around full moon, and we were lucky to witness the red snapper spawning, as well as mantas at cleaning stations, and feeding. Many, many sharks around, even bull sharks and hammerheads. Plus a lot of turtles. On one night, there is a BBQ (already prepared by the crew beforehand) on the beach of Ulong Island (you are there less than 2 hours, which is a bit short). On the last day, there is a visit to Jellyfish lake (snorkling only). Everything is included, except alcohol ($3 can of beer, $30 bottle of wine). Remember that you have to pay additional $210 for permits/fees and $135 for Nitrox (which everybody used) on board.

Comprehensive approach to deliver a good and also safe experience for the guests from pickup from hotel to drop off at airport

Cathedral Cave dive, variety of dives, nice mix with welcome drink, BBQ on the beach, land excursions, sight seeing and cocktail reception towards the end. What was a nice touch was the dedicated tunes for wake up, dive briefing, breakfast, lunch and dinner. The whole organization works like clockwork.

Awesome Trip to Tubbataha with Solitude One

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
