Palau Wreck Trips
The Wrecks of Palau
While many divers are familiar with ‘Operation Hailstone’, the famous attack on Truk Lagoon, most know very little about ‘Operation Desecrate One’, the US Navy’s attack, 6 weeks later, on Palau. The aim was to destroy as much of the remaining Japanese fleet that had escaped from Truk as possible. Over 2 days, more than 36 Japanese vessels, as well as sundry aircraft, were sent to the watery depths of the lagoon.
About Paul & Richard
Paul Collins and Richard Barnden have worked with Sam’s Tours Palau to create Unique Dive Expeditions, which focuses on bringing divers to truly individual dives in Palau! Both are technical and rebreather divers and so can accommodate long dive times, including decompression.
Prior to each dive there will be an in-depth briefing which will include a detailed site map with entries/exits, points of interest, hazardous objects and special considerations for the dive which will enable all divers to plan appropriately. S/Y Palau Siren provides equipment and support facilities for deep, technical and rebreather diving for your convenience.
