A Nautilus Dive, sharks, mantas…. Palau what a great destination!   

The Palau Siren and her crew were ready for a great 7 night dive trip in the Palau waters. This week the lucky divers were an international group of divers from the United States, Switzerland, Ukraine, Poland, Canada and Belgium.
On the first day of diving, while we had a light breakfast and a coffee, the Palau Siren already started moving and made its way to Ulong where we dove Sandy Paradise, Siaes Tunnel and Ulong Channel. On each dive site we could enjoy many schools of fish and sharks and the beautiful coral garden at Ulong Channel.

Then, it was time to do our night dive at German Wall were we saw moray eels, crabs, shrimps, nudibranch and lion fish.

After breakfast our second dive was at Blue Holes where we had sharks, Napoleons, fusiliers and turtles. For the third dive head out to Barnum’s wall enjoying the coral garden with plenty of turtles and a leopard shark. In the evening, our night dive was at Big Drop Off where we saw eels, crabs, shrimps, turtles and even white tip reef sharks.
