For both divers and snorkelers, Palau is an underwater paradise of pristine coral reefs, large pelagic fish, shoals of sharks and giant stingrays. It is said that no two dives here are the same!
Aside from the amazing diving, we also offer snorkelling in the iconic Jellyfish Lake or kayaking amongst the many atolls of Palau.
Waking up surrounded by the beauty that characterises the islands of Palau, you will wonder how such a magically pristine and untouched region of the world still exists, especially after its tumultuous past. A dream for wreck diving enthusiasts, Palau’s ocean floor is scattered with war relics, over 40 World War II Japanese seaplanes and shipwrecks.
This region has been likened to that of the African Serengeti, thanks to its amazing biodiversity and the range of marine encounters.
Most notable dive sites throughout the Palau islands include Blue Corner, German Channel, Ulong Channel and Blue Holes – where you can dive the same site over and over again and thoroughly enjoy a different experience each time! From beginners and intermediate to expert divers, there are over 50 existing dive sites, each with distinct characteristics and individual personalities, offering something for everyone.
The Palau islands can be divided into six major regions. The island of Babeldaob is the largest of the islands, also featuring Palau’s capital, Melekeok. Koror island is home to the largest city, while the Rock Islands, Peleliu, Angaur and the Sonsorol Islands are far more remote but, definitely worth exploring.
The archipelago of Rock Islands is home to the famed Jellyfish Lake – a natural marvel packed with millions of stinger-free jellyfish, which makes for a truly phenomenal snorkelling experience.
Throughout the islands of Palau, you will enjoy forest treks, kayaking and the mangroves with its many saltwater crocodiles found in and around the Rock Islands. Despite their fearsome, justified reputation, they rarely grow to the immense size that they do in Australia and New Guinea.
