Palau

PALAU

THE WORLD

ALL YEAR

Seen from above, the islands of Palau look like green calligraphy on an empty corner of the sea. Over to the east of the Philippines and locked in by the stretching Pacific Ocean, Palau is a rare haven, a self-contained, isolated archipelago thriving with biodiversity and abundance.

During WWII, the United States attacked the Japanese base at Palau and destroyed the capital island city of Koror, leaving sunken ships which make for an incredible dive.

With a variety of hundred of fish species and its seven hundred corals and anemones, Palau acts as the heart of biodiversity, pumping life outwards from the blood-warm waters of the Pacific to further regions like Hawaii which only has one-third as many underwater species as Palau. It is impossible to get tired on dives here when everywhere you look you see something new and different.

We have several Liveaboard Itineraries ranging from 7 to 12 days and also land based stay and dive packages!

From $3,495 USD per person
