One of the biggest thrills you can have as a diver is watching a manta ray gently swoop in from above. Within the German Channel that runs from Palau's barrier reef to the pacific ocean, manta rays gather in their numbers to feed on plankton and visit the cleaning stations. Cleaner wrasse and butterflyfish get to work, much to the delight of the winged beauties and divers alike.


Picture yourself descending beneath the surface, surrounded by a vibrant coral reef that teems with life. Your heart will sing as you encounter an array of marine life. Whale sharks, eagle rays, turtles, reef sharks, and the occasional hammerhead are a few examples of the astonishing spectrum this Micronesian archipelago has to offer. Let the rhythmic sound of the waves and the warmth of the sun caress your skin as you explore one of the most spectacular underwater worlds on the planet.

Palau is a paradise like no other, with more than 1,400 species of fish, 500 species of healthy coral, and water temperatures between 81-86°F (27-30°C). Diving in Palau is a must for every diver.

There is more to Palau than just diving! This trip will include an Indiana Jones tour and beach barbeque. You can also take a guided tour of the sights and history of the 'Big Island,’ Babeldaob. Other activities could include hiking across the freshwater river and bathing in mini-waterfalls and mountain pools. While souvenir shopping you can visit museums,  an art gallery, or just get a massage and relax. Whatever you do on this amazing trip will be something to remember.
