8 reasons to consider a dive trip to Palau

by Jorge Mezcua on Aug 06, 2023

1. Blue Corner

Scuba Diving Magazine ranked Palau's Blue Corner as the #1 best dive site in the world. So if you want to dive in the best place in the world, you know where to go:

2. Ulong Channel

At Ulong Channel you will need the reef hook and it is not suitable if you are afraid of strong emotions underwater, but those who enjoy the currents will find that the stronger the currents, the more interesting and fun the dive becomes. In Ulong Channel you will find dense schools of big fish, sharks patrolling, pelagics cruising close to the reef wall... Just dive in and watch the ocean go by... or just let yourself go.

3. It is the first shark sanctuary

Palau was the first country to declare part of its territory a "Shark Sanctuary" in 2009, protecting more than 600,000 km2 of ocean... an area similar to the size of France. So when you dive in Palau, you will find a balanced and healthy ecosystem due to the constant presence of sharks, thanks to the efforts of the people and government of Palau. In addition, your dollars will help Palau continue to protect the more than 135 endangered shark species that live in its waters.

4. Manta Rays

German Channel is the place to see manta rays in Palau. This cleaning station receives currents laden with food from the South Pacific and the Coral Triangle, calling the manta rays that come in large numbers. You will also find an abundance of corals, sharks and all kinds of tropical fish.

5. Much more affordable than you think

Despite the belief that Palau is a luxury dive destination and one of the most expensive in the world, we can spend a week exploring its must-see dive sites for as little as €2,000 on world-class liveaboard boats.

6. Jellyfish lake

Nowhere else in the world can you walk into a jellyfish-infested lake, literally millions of them, and let them pet you without getting hurt.

7. Living History of World War II

Beneath the natural beauty and serenity of Peleliu Island, south of Palau, one of the bloodiest Pacific battles of World War II took place. In 1944, after a long and grueling three-month battle, the U.S. ended the 30-year presence of the Japanese. The remains of this bloody battle (with more than 15,000 casualties between the two sides), as well as the Japanese occupation itself, can still be found throughout the island and can be visited on various tours.

8. Wrecks

World War II battles such as Peleliu brought dozens of ships and aircraft to the bottom of Palau's coral islands, many of them at shallow depths and in excellent diving conditions. Considering that they have been underwater for decades in waters ideal for coral upwelling and that few divers visit them, you can imagine the great condition they are in and where you can see everything from bottles to helmets, bullets and other items belonging to the crew of the sunken ships.
