A category 5 super typhoon hit the small island atoll of Ulithi. Most homes were severely damaged or destroyed, leaving many without a home, water, and food. The island desperately needs your help. Underwater Vacations and Palau Dive Adventures are holding a raffle to help the victims of super typhoon Maysak. Raffle tickets are $25 each or 5 for $100. We will be raffling off 5 days of diving and 7 nights hotel (Palau Paradise Hotel) for two guests. The winner of the Relief for Ulithi raffle will be randomly drawn on May 1, 2015 and announced on Palau Dive Adventures and Underwater Vacations Facebook Page.

Palau Dive Adventures President, Chris Lubba stated “this disaster hits very close to home for the staff and family at Palau Dive Adventures. Many of staff members have family on Ulithi and there is little to no relief for them.” Lubba continued, “We welcome the opportunity to work on this philanthropic effort with our business partners at Underwater Vacations to raise monies to help these folks so in need of basic supplies.

Underwater Vacations General Manager, Mark Moran commented, “we look forward to what little help we can generate and hope the entire dive industry will join in and support this cause.”

Anyone can participate in the raffle, which is ongoing currently and ends on May 1,, 2015. A small donation of $25 will help families in need on Ulithi. The prizes are being donated, thus most, if not all, the proceeds will go to benefit the folks on Ulithi. Manufacturers and dive shops are invited to promote the raffle in any way that will help.

Interested in joining the effort and potentially win a free trip for two to Palau? Head to underwatervacations.com/relief-for-ulithi.html and sign up today.

My wife will insist on coming, at BTS last month she was eyeing a lot of dive destinations :)

WOW! airfare starting @ $2100.00 round trip with overnight layover.
For $4200, looks like 7 days in the Bahamas is more likely.
5 days diving is better than 6 days traveling.
