Palau Liveaboards


Palau DivingPalau is part of the Micronesia Island chain and is beautifully located just 7° north of the equator in the western Pacific Ocean. It lies 1000km east of the Philippines. Palau includes more than 200 islands, of which only eight are inhabited. With three exceptions, all of the islands are located within a single barrier reef and represent two geological formations. The largest are volcanic and rugged with interior jungle and large areas of grassed terraces. The Rock Islands are a limestone formation, while Kayangel, at the northernmost tip, is a classic coral atoll. This gives Palau some of the most favorable tropical weather on earth. Palau beckons to you with some of the world's most awesome natural wonders.

Micronesia has always been hailed as one of the premier dive destinations of the world. From large manta rays to tiny cleaner shrimp, the underwater world truly blossoms and comes alive in Palau. With five dive guides and two 30ft tenders, Big Blue will show you the time of your life where each day brings new dive sites to explore. Dive days on Big Blue consist of four to fives dives, each starting with a short dive briefing and equipment check before heading out into the sea for some underwater exploration.

Palau can be dived most of the year round. It has a pleasantly warm climate with an annual temperature of 27°C (82°F). Rainfall can occur throughout the year with the annual average of 150 inches. Typhoons are rare as Palau is located outside the typhoon zone, however, we normally do not operate August/September as Palau can be subjected to strong winds at this time of year.

Consistently chosen as the world's premiere diving destination by several international diving publications, Palau features enchanting topside topography as well as breathtaking underwater landscapes. Experience big fish action at the BLUE CORNER and NEW DROP OFF! Shafts of light cutting through deep shadows create a near-religious experience at the "BLUE HOLES". GERMAN CHANNEL, CHANDELIER CAVE, PELELIU, SIAES TUNNEL, ULONG CHANNEL, WRECKS and many more!
