Route Options

Dive the perfect Palau sites aboard the stunning Siren and encounter magnificent pelagics and corals.

Divers travelling to Palau can expect to see a variety of reef sharks, huge schools of barracuda, manta and eagle rays, Napoleon wrasse and batfish coupled with many critters and impressive corals. Drift dives are the norm and there are also plenty of wrecks to visit. Ulong Channel is considered the best dive in Palau: a drift dive with coral encrusted walls, sharks and other pelagic action as well as lettuce, giant clams and groupers. The Iro Wreck is a Japanese oil supply ship that was sunk during WWII by American forces, encrusted with corals and batfish hovering above, this is certainly not to be missed!

The S/Y Palau Siren was built with the same specifications as her sister yachts and can comfortably accomodate 16 guests in 8 double/twin cabins. Beer and soft drinks are included free of charge in the full board cost. This beautiful liveaboard vessel truly sets out to be the pros choice for underwater photography and videography with large rinse tanks solely for camera equipment and workstations with charging points for such equipment.

Witness the spawning of Bumphead Parrotfish and Red Snapper

Join the Palau Siren on these special cruises and you will have a chance to witness one of the most spectacular natural events on earth, the spawning aggregations of the Bumphead Parrotfish (Bolbomeotpon Muricatum) and the Red Snapper (Lutjanus Bohar). When diving at Full Moon, you will experience tens of thousands of Red Snappers rise up from the deep and aggregate to start their mating manoeuvres in a spectacle full of energy and excitement while they change their colours from red to white. Not surprisingly, these huge aggregations also attract the biggest predators in Palau such as Bull Sharks, Oceanic Blacktip Sharks, and Hammerheads. Watch how they hunt actively within the large school of spawning Red Snappers. During the New Moon dives, you will witness hundreds of Bumphead Parrotfish aggregating to start their noisy climatic mating dance! With loud bangs male Bumpheads bump their heads together like buffaloes to gain superiority over females with colour changes taking place as the fish prepare to spawn – it is not a surprise they have oversized foreheads!

Siaes Tunnel

Palau, Micronesia

The Siaes Tunnel is another extraordinary dive site on Palau, this site is situated close to Ulong Channel on the west coast. Due to its depth, it is considered an advanced dive site and time inside is therefore limited around 12 minutes.

The opening to the tunnel starts on a sheer wall at 23m and stretches inside for 50m, with a height of 6m and a width of 16m. The inside is an enormous cavern ranging in depth from 30-40m. White tip sharks can often been seen resting at the bottom.

  • Diver Level: Advanced Open Water Diver
  • Max Depth: 40m

Ulong Channel

Palau, Micronesia

This site is situated on the west coast of Palau, close to Siaes Tunnel. The entrance is covered with coral gardens and the channel itself stretches some 500m - at an average width of 33m - to the lagoon. There is a sandy bottom at the entrance where shark gather together to feed on the fish that are swept inside.
The bottom varies in depth from between 10-15m and is clear of coral, but the sides are festooned with soft coral and sea fans. Divers will be able to see a vast array of plate coral that houses squirrelfish, glasseyes and soldier fish.

  • Diver Level: Open Water Diver
  • Max Depth: 15m

Blue Holes

Palau, Micronesia

The blue hole is a fascinating site. From the shallow reef, divers can enter from any of four openings and descend into an enormous underwater cavern. When the light is right, the feeling inside is of being in a submerged cathedral.

The bottom drops to 35m and divers will discover a good variety of sea fans and whip and cup corals. The fish life is also diverse and larger pelagics, including barracuda, tuna and jacks can be encountered along with grey and white tip reef sharks.

  • Min Dives: 9
  • Dive Type: Boat Dive
  • Diver Level: Advanced Open Water Diver
  • Max Depth: 35m

Blue Corner

Palau, Micronesia

The Blue Corner is one of the most famous dive sites around Palau and it’s also the one that everyone wants to visit. Depths and currents here can change in seconds, therefore at times this dive site will not make it suitable for beginners. Divers can expect to encounter plenty of white tip and grey reef sharks, barracuda, jacks, rays, tuna, snapper, wrasse and bass. A myriad of smaller reef fish inhabit the area as well.

  • Min Dives: 9
  • Dive Type: Boat Dive
  • Diver Level: Advanced Open Water Diver
  • Max Depth: 30m

Peleliu

Palau, Micronesia

This site is located near Anguar Island at the most southerly part of Palau. At its shallowest, this reef lies in 10m of water, with walls that drop off steeply to the depths. Because of the ever-present currents, there is actually very little coral life at the top; however the walls are covered in sea fans, sea whips and hard and soft corals. Fish life is profuse here and it is a great site to see grey reef sharks.

  • Min Dives: 9
  • Dive Type: Boat Dive
  • Diver Level: Advanced Open Water Diver
  • Max Depth: 45m

German Channel

Palau, Micronesia

This is a man-made channel that was blasted out by German miners, in the early 1900s. There is a sandy bottom at 17m that slopes away steeply to the depths. The bottom has some large coral formations. The biggest attraction here is the large number of manta rays divers are likely to see. Grey reef sharks are also often encountered, again taking advantage of the cleaning wrasse. Other attractions are barracuda, lionfish, snappers and triggerfish.

Jelly Fish Lake

Palau, Micronesia

The Jelly Fish Lake is situated on Eil Malk Island. This is a saltwater lake was created millions of years ago.
At that time, jellyfish were trapped in it and have now evolved to the point where they have no need to sting as there are no predators in this lake. There are probably at least two million of these creatures there now and snorkelling among them is definitely a strange and unnerving experience, until you realise that they can do you no harm.

  • Min Dives: 9
  • Dive Type: Boat Dive
  • Diver Level: Advanced Open Water Diver
  • Max Depth: 25m

Chandelier Caves

Palau, Micronesia

The cave consists of three air filled chambers in a straight line, with a single entrance and exit. The deepest part of the dive is 30 feet (10m). Each chamber is spectacular in its own way; divers will see magnificently coloured flowstones and crystalline stalactites in each of them, as well as some dipping below the surface of the water.

  • Min Dives: 4
  • Dive Type: Boat Dive
  • Diver Level: Open Water Diver
  • Max Depth: 18m

Turtle Cove

Palau, Micronesia

The turtle Cove is located North of Peleliu. This is a popular rest stop for Blue Corner divers. There is a shaded beach and good snorkelling at the cove and, after the proper surface interval, a blue hole/wall dive is very handy.

  • Min Dives: 4
  • Dive Type: Boat Dive
  • Diver Level: Open Water Diver
  • Max Depth: 15m

Iro Wreck

Palau, Micronesia

The Iro Wreck is located at Urukthapel Bay and is perhaps the best-known and most popular shipwreck in Palau.

It is located just a short distance from Koror and is in an area that is normally protected from winds and roughs seas. It is basically shallow as wrecks go and is beautifully overgrown with many forms of sessile marine life. Its sister ship, the Sata lies close by, upside-down, deep, and basically not divable.

  • Dive Type: Boat Dive
  • Diver Level: Advanced Open Water Diver

Sam’s Wall, Malakal Harbour

Palau, Micronesia

Just outside Sam’s Tours Palau Dive Centre, the wall and jetty provide an excellent habitat for the smaller critters such as pipefish, spiny devilfish, juvenile batfish and a wide variety of crustaceans. Dive at sunset to see the “fat” mandarin fish mating spectacle.
