COM­BINE YOUR DIVE LIVEABOARD CRUISE in the Philip­pines, Palau or Truk with div­ing in Yap and re­ceive 10% off both. Siren Fleet and Mas­ter Live­aboards have an­nounced new div­ing com­bi­na­tion pack­ages with Manta Ray Bay Re­sort in Yap, a tiny is­land in the Pa­cific well off the beaten track. Trip on­board the Philip­pine Siren wil l com­prise six nights in south­ern Visayas and four nights in Yap for US$3,464. Pass­ing by Ca­bi­lao Is­land, Bal­i­casag, Dauin, Moal­boal, Pescador Is­land and Apo Is­land in the Visayas, guests are likely to en­counter beau­ti­ful marine crea­tures such as bar­racuda, snap­per, ghost pipefish and pipehorses, skele­ton shrimp and trig­ger­fish. The Palau Siren of­fers an 11-night trip: seven in Palau and four in Yap. Divers on board won’t want to miss Blue Corner and Ger­man Chan­nel in Palau, both sites teem­ing with life. The 11-night Truk Mas­ter fo­cuses of course on the su­perla­tive wreck div­ing in Truk, where the co­ral reef la­goon is packed with over 60 wrecks, from sup­ply ves­sels to planes and a sub­ma­rine. Each boat moves then on to Yap where the high­lights in­clude res­i­dent man­tas and a huge reef shark pop­u­la­tion. Be­ing close to the equa­tor, the av­er­age tem­per­a­ture here is a balmy 27°C year-round, while the wa­ter is a com­fort­able 28°C. The Manta Ray Bay Re­sort was built for divers by divers and of­fers 35 air­con rooms, each with a unique marine theme. The in-house five-star PADI and SSI Plat­inum dive cen­tre is fully equipped to meet all divers’ needs with ni­trox, lock­able camera bays, mod­ern boats and per­sonal stor­age bays. Cour­ses are on of­fer as well. Read more about the pack­ages at www.mas­ter­live­ or www.siren­
