The Republic of Palau is incomparable. Lying between the Philippine Sea and northern Pacific Ocean, these limestone islands surrounded by crystal clear cobalt blue water are home to a dazzling array of marine life.
Toss into the mix Micronesia's richest flora and fauna and some of the most sociable (and responsible) people, and it's no surprise that parts of Palau are known as the 'beginning of everything', a template the rest of the world would do well to follow.
In Palau we are proud to work with the beautiful S/Y Palau Siren. This luxury liveaboard affords the avid diver the opportunity to explore the nations varied and spectacular dive sites.
Most tourists who come here like to spend their time underwater, for Palau is among the world's most spectacular diving and snorkelling destinations. Drift dives are the norm and sites are varied featuring coral reefs, blue holes, wartime wrecks, hidden caves and tunnels and vertical drop-offs. In terms of marine life, divers can expect to see a variety of reef sharks, huge schools of jacks and barracuda, manta and eagle rays, Napoleon wrasse and batfish coupled with many critters and impressive coral reefs. There are also some outright miracles of evolution: giant clams that weigh a quarter of a ton and a lake teeming with 21 million softly pulsating, stingless jellyfish! See our 10-night Palau Islands itinerary for more details on what these amazing dive sites have to offer!
