Palau features proudly in the world’s top 5 of diving destinations. The great variety of dive sites and seascapes combined with the fantastic marine life are key factors attributing to this. Blue Corner, German Channel, Peleliu Wall and Big Drop-Off are only a few of the Palau’s famous dive sites. Channel currents attract big pelagic, such as mantas and all kinds of sharks in big schools. Explore the memorable underwater features like blue holes, drop-offs, caverns, caves and channels. Colourful coral reefs and gardens brimming with life also await you in Palau. Visibility underwater is often very good: 30-40 metres on good days. For an extra special adventure, join S/Y Palau Siren on a Full moon or New moon Spawning trip. Spawning bumphead parrot fish or red snappers make for an unforgettable experience and attract many a predator. On these cruises you will also get to experience blackwater diving, discovering some of the ocean’s deep secrets. To top it off, Palau is home to the renowned Jellyfish Lake, which is also part of our itinerary. Palau really has it all!
