The Ultimate Diving Adventure in Palau The Safari Experience Palau's Beauty on the Eclipse A Unique Diving Experience on the Safari


The cost of renting one of Sam's Tours exclusive chartered dive yachts is very reasonable, about the same a couple pays on one of the large liveaboards for the same number of days, but significantly less per person if your charter party numbers three or more. The price includes diving, dive master, great cuisine, choice of beverages, kayaks if desired, beer and rum punch after diving, plus fresh fish on occasion. Transfers from hotel or airport are also included. Not included are government permits and room taxes, or rental gear.

Eclipse is priced at $1100 per day, exclusive for two guests. Six days aboard totals $6600. Ten day trips for two cost 11,000.

Three guests aboard Eclipse costs $1250 per day, making $7500 for six days.

Four aboard is $1400 per day, totaling $8400 for our usual six day trip.

Five or even six may be accommodated aboard Eclipse in some cases, inquire for details.

Safari costs $1300 per day for two guests, so six days totals $7800. Under some circumstances Safari can accommodate an extra one or two guests. Inquire if you are contemplating this, usually for families.

Minimum number of days for a reservation is five days, most trips are six days in length, but bookings for ten or more days are possible if reservations are made early before adjacent dates fill up.

Be sure to check availability before making airline reservations.

To confirm a reservation we need a 50% deposit, so a six day trip on Eclipse requires a minimum of $3300 for the deposit, for Safari the amount is $3900. The balance is due upon arrival at Sam's Tours. Eclipse starts trips on Thursday mornings, Safari departs on Sunday mornings. Guests are welcome to move aboard the afternoon before departure so that getting permits, unpacking, checking gear, paying balance then discussing objectives and options with crew does not cut into the six action packed days aboard. Making a deposit on an exclusive chartered dive trip means that we will necessarily turn away later applications for that time, so retuning a deposit is only possible if we are able to book that week at a later date, easy months in advance, increasingly difficult as the dates draw near.
