The best time to dive in Palau is from October to April although Palau can be dived year-round. Within these months, you can expect dry conditions. From June to the beginning of October, it tends to rain frequently. However, during these months, the diving is still good and you’ll be able to find the best deals on liveaboards. Marine life varies little from month to month. Water temperatures usually range from 81 to 86°F (27 to 30°C). These warm waters mean you’ll only need to pack a 3mm wetsuit. Visibility in Palau is often fantastic. On a good day, you might see seemingly endless visibility, which in reality reaches 200 feet (60 meters). However, the wrecks near Koror tend to have slightly diminished visibility at 20 feet (8 meters) due to the nearby city. Finally, surface conditions in Palau can become rough during the shoulder season. April, July, August, October and November often see high winds which toss the water about, making the liveaboard journey slightly less pleasant. However, these conditions rarely negatively affect the scuba diving experience in Palau.
