Silversea Expeditions offers a series of Scuba Diving Expedition voyages to fully explore the remote destinations we visit, both on land and underwater. Together with our Expedition Team and Dive Masters, we will offer experienced divers the opportunity to see the top diving sites of Asia Pacific and the South Pacific.

Silver Discoverer, the latest addition to the Silversea Expeditions fleet, features a series of scuba-diving opportunities on select voyages in 2015 and 2016, offering experienced divers the opportunity to see Asia Pacific and the South Pacific’s top diving sites. You will visit such regions as the Solomon Islands, the Palau archipelago and the Marquesas islands, which have been celebrated as some of the world’s most spectacular diving hotspots, featuring blue holes, hidden caves and tunnels, and an astonishing spectrum of coral fish and rare sea creatures.

The Silversea Expeditions Team has carefully crafted these unique itineraries to provide you with the most awe-inspiring deep sea adventures in the Southern Hemisphere. In addition, aboard Silver Discoverer, a team of experts which includes marine biologists, environmentalists, ecologists and geologists will be on hand to share their extensive knowledge of the region.
