Sharks, mantas, school of fish, Napoleons… Palau is always full of underwater action!

Palau Siren was happy once again to have on board brand new divers from US, New Zealand, Scotland and Switzerland for more great dives around the Rock Islands. For our check dive, we chose Haf Adai Wreck, a fishing boat converted to sub-chaser by Japanese, where we saw lion fish, pufferfish, blue fuseliers, sweetlips, nudibranch, longnose hawkfish, pipefish, mated damselfish with eggs. During breakfast, the Palau Siren moved towards Ulong Island, where some shark action were waiting for us at Siaes Tunnel and Sandy Paradise. For our night dive we chose to go back to Sandy Paradise where we saw banded boxer shrimp, glass fish, Barracuda, crabs, shrimps and various nudibranch and flatworm

After this incredible dive, we continued our adventure towards Ngemelis area, where we dove the famous Blue Corner and New Drop Off. As always, those dive sites were amazing! Grey reef sharks, whitetip sharks, Napoleons, schools of snappers, barracudas and jacks, turtles, and a long etcetera! For those who weren’t tired after this great diving day we chose Big Drop Off for the night dive.

After breakfast, it was time for dive 2 at Turtle Cove, where we saw many sharks, Napoleons and school of fish as well as turtles. For our 3th dive, we went back to Blue Corner where all schooling fish were on the top of the reef and the sharks were swimming all around us. We were back to German Channel, on the next day, to see if our big black friends were still there, and they were! Second dive was at Dexter’s wall, amazing dive with the numerous green turtles at Dexter’s and finishing the dive with the Grey Reef Sharks at Blue Corner. The next dive was at Blue Holes and it’s incredible Cathedral with its disco clams, hermit crab and sharks. For those who wanted a night dive, we went back to Big Drop Off.
