Liveaboard Palau & Micronesia
Liveaboard Palau & Micronesia...
Micronesia - a part Oceania - contains six sovereign nations and is a huge area of thousands of islands in the western Pacific Ocean with a tropical marine climate and a huge amount of stunning dive sites, many of them belonging to the best dive spots in the world.
Fantastic islands sourrounded by white beaches and turquoise waters and an extraordinary marine life, vibrant corals gardens, plunging walls, spectacular drop-offs and many World War I and II wrecks make this whole area a world first class dive destination and perfect for liveaboard cruises.
There are two main areas for liveaboard cruises in Micronesia, Palau and Chuuk Lagoon (previously known as Truk Lagoon)
Republic of Palau
The Republic of Palau contains more than 300 islands and many famous dive sites like Iro Maru Wreck a Japanese ship sunken in 1944, Peleliu Express, German Channel (one of the best spots in the world to see Manta Rays), the Blue Corner, located in the South West reef of the Rock Islands features a top drift dive spot with some of the largest schools of fish in the world and the famous Jellyfish Lake.
Chuuk Lagoon is an area of more than 50 wreck dive sites. During WWII more than 60 ships and 200 aeroplanes went down there and almost 80 years later, many of them are covered in soft and hard corals but still intact enough to explore them.
