  • German Channel
  • Manta Point
  • Peleliu

Diving in Palau provides excellent opportunities to encounter both large fish and macro-marine life. Mantas, barracudas, and eagle rays are common sights in Palau's underwater realm.

Underwater World of Palau:
The underwater world hosts over 700 species of corals and anemones, along with more than 1,500 species of fish. Eagle rays, whale sharks, reef sharks, turtles, and with some luck, hammerhead sharks, are among the diverse marine life you may encounter in this Micronesian archipelago. Rare sightings include the endangered dugong, giant clams, and saltwater crocodiles. In Jellyfish Lake, Mastigias jellyfish have evolved into a non-toxic subspecies. Palau boasts spectacular drop-offs, channels, caves, and the famous Blue Hole, making it one of the most exciting diving destinations globally. The well-known German Channel offers encounters with mantas, who visit cleaning stations and feed on plankton. Additionally, there are over 30 World War II wrecks within reachable diving depths.

Land Attractions:
Above water, Palau showcases a breathtaking flora and fauna, including 142 bird species, 16 of which are endemic, such as the Palau Owl, Palau Fruit Dove, and the Micronesian Megapode. Approximately 1,260 plant species, including wild orchids and the cycad palm, add to the terrestrial beauty.

Best Time to Visit Palau:
While diving is possible year-round, the best time is during the dry season from October to May. The average water temperature ranges from 27°C to 30°C, making a 3mm wetsuit sufficient. Despite nutrient-rich waters, visibility can reach up to 50 meters.
