In 2015 and 2016, Palau’s Jellyfish Lake suffered a drastic decrease of jellyfish population due to a severe drought. Many tour operators decided to stop offering this attraction in order to help the lake to recover.

What a great honor to welcome back 4 guests from Belgium who were with us on Fiji Siren in February of last year, it’s always exciting when we have friends return for another visit. As is typical we seem to have another United Nations delegation on-board with no less than 10 different nationalities present for our 119th charter. Our shake-down dive was at Corridors of Fun where we saw some beautiful soft coral, healthy sea fans, scorpion fish, blue dragons and plenty of very large electric blue jellyfish. From here it was a smooth overnight voyage down to our southernmost stop at the island of Gau some 11-hours away.
