You can visit Palau from land.. but why not take the plunge and go for a Palau liveaboard... A diving destination as sumptuous as Palau demands that extra attention and with our liveaboards, you are guaranteed a luxurious scuba diving holiday that you will not forget. Float away into a diving paradise on the most exclusive liveaboards and let Palau's magic work on you. A liveaboard holiday will get you to dive sites few others can access. Dive groups are kept small so you get more attention in the water. Your every creature comfort is on board, from the well stocked post dive bar to entertainment and sound systems. There has never been a more enjoyable way to experience the thrills of scuba diving in Palau .
Palau has something to offer every kind of diver. Fish lover or wreck enthusiast, the itineraries are varied and will get you to the best dive sites. With up to 6 dives daily too, you will be spoilt for choice. The must see sites include the Blue Holes, Peleliu Wall and Expressway or Chandelier Cave, where great stalagmites cling to the cave ceiling. Helmet Wreck, Jake Seaplane and the Teshio Maru are just some of the wrecks that are equally unmissable. But no matter where you dive you are sure to find pristine reefs blossoming with hard and soft corals. The fish life is abundant on the wrecks and reefs. Or grab your snorkel for a trip to the famous jellyfish lake, where vast swathes of stingless jellyfish follow the sunlight across the lake. There is genuinely no diving holiday that quite compares to the Palau liveaboard experience - this is a holiday you will not want to ever end.

Traditionally there are 2 seasons in Palau - a wet (July-November) and dry (December-June) season - but this is changing and you can experience a bit of both in a single trip as this is a tropical destination. Even in the 'wet season' you will still be able to dive. Palau lies well outside of typhoon ranges.
Thanks to the island formations and currents, pelagic are in abundance here but there are also some quite unique inhabitants to this remote region:
- Grey reef, black tip & white tip sharks
- Leatherback, loggerhead and hawskbill turtles
- Bumphead parrot fish
- Wreck diving
Top dive sites to visit: Blue Holes, Blue Corner, German Channel, Chandelier Cave, Peleliu Expressway, Jellyfish lake.
