Experience Palau, Micronesia

Palau's Famous Rock Islands

Experience the best of Palau's land-based lodgings
and its finest live-aboard dive boats and dive cruises!


PALAU and its ISLANDS - Palau is truly a divers' paradise. Made up of 200 mostly uninhabited islands, total human population is only about 17,000 -- yes, the fish definitely have you outnumbered! One of the official languages of Palau is English, the currency is the US dollar, electricity is the same as in the U.S. (Single phase 60 cycles, 115/230 volts AC), and even the postage is the same as in the USA.

  • TRAVEL to PALAU - Air travel to Palau is ably handled by Continental Air Micronesia. Flying via Guam's gleaming new airport to the capital of Palau, the city of Koror, you will receive valuable Frequent Flier Mileage with Continental Airlines. Once in Palau, divers have a fine choice of live-aboard dive boats, and hotels that range in price and amenities from the modest to the majestic.

    DIVING in PALAU - When it comes to diving excitement, many well-traveled divers place Palau at the very top of their list. Spread over a large area, the dive sites are highly varied with a wide diversity of terrain and marine life. While many of the dive sites are in calm waters, some of Palau's best dives are known for their strong current and coincident population of large pelagic animals such as sharks and rays. If you will be doing your Palau diving from a land-based hotel, keep in mind that the daily boat rides to the dive sites may take one hour or more. But whether you choose a hotel, or a live-aboard dive boat, Palau's diving is a worthy reward for the time and money spent.

    Dear Tina and Island Dreams,
        "Oh my word..... what a vacation. My dream for many years was to do an incredible family dive trip in a world class location. I wanted to do this before the kids grew up and scattered their separate ways. Palau Pacific Resort was awesome. Sam's Dive Tours was great. The people of Palau are so friendly. Best family trip we have been on. The Resort went out of their way to provide excellent service. Just incredible. Thank you for all your help."
    Sincerely, Darrell Bowyer
