What Our Guests Say

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 were very delicious and the cabin was excellent. Last but not least, the Diving was GREAT.

I’ve just returned from Palau on board Solitude One. We were a group of 12 and throughout our 7 days on board I heard nothing but good reviews. Aside from the spacious Dive deck, efficient Dive operation, great food and all round excellent service it was the people on board that made this trip so special.

~ Benjamin J. Stokes

The crew are top-notch. All are friendly, hard-working and fun. Rooms are very clean and adequate. Meals were delicious with freshly caught fish and plenty of fruits and vegetables. Dive masters were safety-conscious, knowledgeable, and eager to point out little critters. Service could not have been better in any way. Common areas are spacious and well thought out. The diving is incredible, BTW.
