With 250 islands, Palau offers great shark diving, soft coral reefs and a variety of World War II wrecks. Liveaboards are the most popular way to dive this island country.
Palau is an island nation of 250 islands and plenty of scuba opportunities. Heavy currents sweep in pelagic species, giving you the chance to swim among manta rays, whitetip reef sharks, leopard sharks and a variety of sea turtles. Coral beds provide habitat to an abundance of macro species and huge schools of fish, and WWII wrecks dot the underwater landscape. Many of Palau’s best dive sites, including the Blue Corner and the German Channel, are located far from Koror, and liveaboards are the best option for those that want to dive the best sites in one trip. Most of the liveaboard cruises in Palau last between 7 and 10 nights, and the best time to dive in the area is from October to April.
