Join us in Palau in 2018 - Palau Siren Luxury Liveaboard Trip

Luxury Liveaboard Trip: Palau 2018 – Sharks, Rays & Wrecks

5 – 15 July 2018

$5999 (All Inclusive)

Join us on our luxury liveaboard trip aboard the Palau Siren in 2018! Palau is world famous for the best drift diving in the world as well as the WWII wrecks from operation Desecrate One, in which 36 Japanese ships were sunk!

The best thing about liveaboard diving in Palau is that you get started with your diving pretty much immediately after waking up! When the land based resorts are serving breakfast, we’ll already be in the water for the first dive getting the best possible view of the feeding stations of the sharks and the rays! You jump out of bed for a quick light snack and wake up with the sharks and rays of Palau before having a big breakfast back on board after the first dive! On the liveaboard we are also able to venture further out to the furthest corners of the archipelago to experience some of the best diving Palau has to offer!

On some dives we will hook ourselves onto the reef with the use of reef hooks and just sit back while we see the incredible marine life cruise past. Palau is a typical ‘big fish’ destination with lots and lots of sharks on most dives! Black tip, white tip, silver tip, grey reef, oceanic white tip, leopard, bull and hammerhead sharks and many more species can be expected as well as Palau’s abundant population of manta rays, eagle rays and many other ray species! As Palau was the first country in the world to announce a shark sanctuary (in 2009), most species can be found her in abundance!

Besides the sharks and rays, expect dolphins and big schools of pelagics, such as trevally, snapper, big eyed tuna, black marlin and with many other large species visiting Palau, you never know what to expect. Whatever you’re going to see, most of it will be big!!

We’ll visit all of Palau’s world famous dive sites, such as the Ngemelis Drop Off (the world’s best wall dive), Blue Corner, Blue Hole and German Channel as well as world famous WWII wrecks such as the Iro with its open engine room, “Jake” (a Japenese navy seaplane) and the Amatzu Maru – the largest wreck in Micronesia.

Nitrox is included in the price and so are all meals and all soft drinks/beers! This is an all inclusive trip!

Beqa Lagoon Fiji Trip

Bucket List Trip: Bull & Tiger Sharks in Beqa Lagoon (Fiji)

3 – 10 August 2018

Only $3399 (All meals included, ex ADL price)

The Beqa Lagoon shark dive is the world’s number one shark diving location. You can see up to eight species of sharks in a single dive: blacktip reef sharks, whitetip reef sharks, grey reef sharks, silvertip sharks, tawny nurse sharks, sicklefin lemon sharks and the two largest predators in the tropics: bull and tiger sharks!

We will be staying at Beqa Lagoon Resort (BLR). A beautiful island resort with the most professional diving school in the region. The best thing about BLR is that the resort has it’s own shark dive site, where you are pretty much guaranteed to see tiger sharks. Since July 2015 they have had at least 2 tiger sharks at their dive site on every dive and on their best dive they have seen an impressive 8(!) tiger sharks!!

Besides the amazing experience of diving with the bad boys (and girls), this trip is loaded with value, as we have organised a total of 10 boat dives (2 per day) as well as UNLIMITED shore diving on the house reef at the resort! The house reef has beautiful corals, lots of rays and an elusive seahorse on it and slopes to a maximum depth of 25 metres, so it’s perfect for day and night diving! And did we mention all meals are included in this trip (so you will just be paying for your drinks!).

Because of the beautiful tropical climate of Fiji, the waters are nice and warm and form the ideal stage to explore the ocean all day long! The reefs in Beqa Lagoon are teaming with marine life and corals, all waiting to be explored! We will be going right in the middle of dry season (their dry season is from June – September). Water temperatures around this time of year are about 26-27 degrees, so we recommend a 3mm steamer for this trip.

Get away from Winter and sign up for next year’s Fiji trip with us. Since July there is a Fiji Airways direct flight from Adelaide to Nadi (in Fiji), so no stops along the way! Dive Adventures have made us another awesome deal at just $3399 (or just a $800 deposit with a weekly payment plan)! Beqa Lagoon is extremely popular and the most popular weeks (the Winter months here in Australia) are already booking out now.

To book, simply send us an email and we will send you an online booking link. At the time of booking a deposit of $800 is required to secure your spot.

Inclusions:
– Return Airfares ex. Adelaide with Fiji Airways
(if wanting to travel from a different location, please contact us)
– All transfers

Truk Lagoon Liveaboard Trip with Diving AdelaideLuxury Liveaboard Trip: WWII Wrecks (Truk Lagoon)

27 April – 5 May 2019

Only $4999 (including all meals)

In 2019 we will be boarding the Truk Master 5* luxury liveaboard for a wreck diving adventure of a lifetime in Truk Lagoon!

Truk Lagoon (also known as Chuuk) is an atoll and a sheltered lagoon in Micronesia and was considered the most formidable of all Japanese strongholds in the Pacific in WWII. Five airstrips, seaplane bases, a torpedo boat station, submarine repair shops, a communications center and a radar station were constructed during the war. Protecting these various facilities were coastal defense guns and mortar emplacements. Due to its heavy fortifications, both natural and manmade, the base at Truk was known to Allied forces as “the Gibralter of the Pacific”.

In 1944, Truk’s capacity as a naval base was destroyed through naval air attack. Some have described Truk as Japan’s equivalent of the Americans’ Pearl Harbor. Operation Hailstone lasted for three days, as American carrier-based planes sank twelve Japanese warships and thirty-two merchant ships, while destroying 275 aircraft. The consequences of the attack made Truk lagoon “the biggest graveyard of ships in the world“.

Imagine yourself diving these ships in warm waters in a sheltered lagoon with minimal currents and crystal clear waters. Truk Lagoon is the number one wreck diving location in the world and wreck divers keep coming back year after year to dive more of the wrecks here. Today the coral encrusted wrecks have attracted prolific marine life, which have transformed the wrecks into artifical reefs and beautiful coral gardens on which you can even see turtles, sharks and manta rays. Nowhere else in the world are there so many wrecks in close proximity, situated in shallow clear water. Many of the wrecks are visible while snorkelling and there are many on-shore wartime locations to visit.

Dive iconic dive sites, such as the San Francisco Maru, the I-169 Submarine, the Betty Bomber, the Fujikawa Maru and many many more (download a PDF with some of the wrecks).

We are staying on board the Truk Master, which can cater for all your technical diving needs. We will be doing up to 4 dives a day and all meals are included whilst on board the ship, as well as all drinks except alcohol.

Truk Lagoon has a tropical climate and very warm waters. The water temperature is approximately 29 degrees. As we will be penetrating many of the wrecks, we recommend a 3mm steamer wetsuit for this trip to keep you warm and protected from the rusty wrecks. Dive Adventures has made us another beautiful deal for this one, just $4999 or just $50 a week for 2 years on a payment plan.

To book, simply send us an email and we will send you an online booking link. At the time of booking a deposit of $900 is required to secure your spot.
