PALAU, MICRONESIA

Palau lies 1,000 km (600 miles) east of the Philippines. It is world renown for marine bio-diversity and an abundance of large pelagic animals that includes schools of sharks and lots of manta rays, turtles on every dive, school of barracudas, elusive mandarin fish and lots of critters. Palau also offers exciting wreck diving with one of the Pacific’s largest collection of intact WWII shipwrecks and plane wrecks, snorkeling in the Jellyfish Lake and an unforgettable dolphin encounter in the Rock Islands. Palau is a divers dream! A true β€œone stop shop” when it comes to diving! Whatever your diving pleasure, level of interest or experience level, Palau diving is sure to please! The majority of diving in Palau consists of drift diving along the beautiful walls, plateaus and coral gardens of the outer barrier reef, a forty minute boat ride from Koror through the picturesque rock islands.
