Almost every dive site in Palau is bustling with activity. Large schools of fusilier and bigeye trevally are often found at channels and drop-offs and these fish attract many predators. Sharks are especially plentiful in Palau and whitetip, grey reef, and blacktip sharks are everywhere. Joining the sharks are other predators like tuna, giant trevally, and even sailfish. At Blue Corner, you will be met by friendly humphead wrasse, which love to come close to divers.
A very unique event to be witnessed in Palau is the spawning of the two-spot red snapper or green humphead parrotfish. Spawning usually takes place around the times of a new moon or full moon and are an otherworldly experience for divers as they involve thousands of these fish. To see manta rays, head to the German Channel and hang around on the sandy bottom. Manta rays often pass overhead or right in front of you at cleaning stations at the mouth of the channel.
Palau is also one of the few places in the world to see the nautilus so do check with your dive operator about these special dives. For macro lovers, do try out dusk dives near Koror to find mandarinfish. Also check out the many shipwrecks which are littered with nudibranch, scorpionfish, pipefish and other critters.
