Best Spots for Experienced Divers:
Blue Corner: Perhaps the most famous dive spot in Palau, Blue Corner offers divers a dramatic underwater landscape of walls, plateaus, and an explosion of marine life. With strong currents, divers can use reef hooks to station themselves and watch the parade of sharks, barracudas, and eagle rays passing by.
The German Channel: An artificially created channel, this site is a cleaning station for manta rays. It's not uncommon to spot several mantas at once, gliding gracefully while being cleaned by smaller fish.
USS Iro and Chuyo Maru Wrecks: These World War II wrecks offer divers a chance to explore history, encrusted with corals and home to a plethora of marine life.
Best Spots for Beginners:
Jellyfish Lake: While not a traditional dive site (it's more of a snorkeling spot), this marine lake is filled with millions of stingless jellyfish. It offers an ethereal experience, as you float surrounded by these otherworldly creatures.
Ngerchong Inside: This site has calm waters and a shallow reef, making it perfect for beginners. The coral gardens are vibrant, and the marine life is plentiful, including turtles, rays, and a variety of fish species.
