MV Oleanda - Marshall Islands

Recommended Posts

I'm planning a trip for 2011 and I'm very interested in the Marshall Islands. I have found limited info on the Oleanda but I can't seem to get in contact with the boats reps or owners. Does anyone have any info on this liveaboard?

Michael,

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news:

 

"Oleanda Cruise Schedule

 

RONGELAP EXPEDITIONS OPERATIONS WILL BE SUSPENDED UNTIL APRIL 1, 2007. PLEASE DIRECT ANY INQUIRIES TO GREG TARASAR AT 692-625-3494 OR VIA EMAIL AT gtarasar@piimajuro.com

-THE MANAGEMENT-"

 

I don't know if she's still sailing, nothing has been updated since that time.

Perhaps someday in the future....

If they start up again it will definately worth going.

 

I went on "Oleanda" in May 2005. We dived Arno & Jaluit atolls (11 night trip) wreck diving in those lagoons was increadible, due to the remoteness they are virtually untouched.

Everyone who was on the trip still dreams of going back.

That stinks? Are there any other liveaboards in the Marshall Islands, or is there another way to dive them?
