Palau Adventure



Trip Days Ports of Call Dates
197 10 Koror Jan 20 - Jan 30, 2018
A repeat of #196, with an emphasis on going north if we have a good weather window, which is much more remote and looks like some interesting reef set ups for finding waves. Palau is hard to beat, in fact it was one of our favorite stops on the Best Odyssey. Manta Rays, whalesharks, surf, 200' visibility, rock islands, jellyfish lake. Crazy wonders at every horizon. An awfully long ways from anywhere, and awfully special. Here's what their website has to say, sounds good to me:

"Palau offers you the world's most beautiful tropical paradise. Famous for its diving, Palau is rated as one of the world's best diving destinations by scuba aficionados. And why not...Palau has unspoiled reefs, caves, and walls with the most amazing array of marine life you can ever imagine.

Palau beckons to you with some of the world's most awesome natural wonders. Imagine the whitest beaches you will ever see, gardens of coral just beneath the clearest waters, lakes filled to the brim with "sting less" jellyfish. Forests, waterfalls and caves that have never been ravaged by man, and hundreds of islands of the purest beauty abound all along our pristine archipelago."

On our first time through we stayed near the south end of Palau because there seemed little reason to go anywhere else, but the norther part of the atoll looks really, really interesting. Let the adventure begin!
