Itinerary and Booking Form
Escorted Group Departure
The Palauan archipelago consists of over 300, mostly uninhabited, islands. The unique, jungle topped, limestone knobs, known as the Rock Islands,
rise from the sea like giant, emerald-green mushrooms, covering an area of over 35 kilometres. Rich in diversity, Palau has an extraordinary variety of
marine life, plants and bird life, thriving tropical rainforests, spectacular waterfalls, caves, white sandy beaches and hidden lakes including the world
famous Jellyfish Lake, where you can swim with thousands of sting-less Jellyfish.
The largest island, Babeldaob, is where the airport and the “new capital” Melekeok, are located. A pleasant drive over the newly built, bridge road
brings you to the island of Koror. Koror is the most populated of Palau’s islands and where the majority of resorts and hotels are located. The township
has a selection of restaurants, grocery stores, a pharmacy and a small department store, carrying a variety of local souvenirs.
Palau sits at the junction of three major ocean currents. The merging currents bring in an abundant food supply, necessary to support the
vibrant coral reefs and huge variety of marine life.
Palau is world renowned for its marine bio-diversity with over 1500 species of reef and pelagic fish, as well as more than 700 species of coral, identified in the region. During the air- raids of 1944, more than 70 World War II military ships were sunk
around the islands, with numerous American and Japanese planes joining them. The nutrient rich waters have resulted in the wrecks being covered in a kaleidoscope of colourful soft corals and sponges.
Palau is legendary for its dramatic sheer walls that rise from the depths to within inches of the surface, capped off with thriving coral reefs. The majority of dives are drift dives along the walls, plateaus and coral gardens of the outer reef. The dive
boat follows along the surface and meets you upon ascent. Experience the sites that make Palau one of the worlds top diving destinations, expect to see lots of sharks, turtles, huge mantas, barracuda, colourfulreef fish as well as the tiny critters like the seahorse and the elusive mandarin fish.
