Palau, the eighth marine wonder of the world is known for its world-class diving, including famous sites like Blue Corner, German Channel and Ulong Channel. Experience drift diving over spectacular walls, explore WWII wrecks and amazing close encounters with exotic marine life. In September 2009 Palau was named the world's first Shark Sanctuary so you'll see plenty of
these magnificent creatures first-hand. Palau's wonders
are not just limited to the sea - the breathtaking Rock
Islands are a sight worth traveling for and a snorkeling
trip to famous Jellyfish Lake will show you that not all jellyfish are created equal.
