Palau

Rock Island Holiday

 

Where we are diving

Palau is a must-see location known for its biodiversity, pelagic animals, dramatic walls, and of course, world-class diving. Palau is made up of 340 islands situated in Micronesia, in the northwest Pacific Ocean between the Philippines and Guam. The archipelago’s green jungle-covered rock islands are surrounded by shafts of sunlight that peek through the clear turquoise waters.

Palau offers a wide range of diving for beginners and pros alike. A paradise above and below the surface, divers can relax as they drift with the currents, hook into the reef, or visit Micronesia’s largest collections of WWII shipwrecks. Palau is also home to more than 1,400 species of fish and 700 species of coral. Marine life you can expect to encounter is eagle rays, grey sharks, and white tip reefs sharks. Some of the best dive spots around the islands include high walls and drop-offs, blue holes, and canyons.

Sam’s Tours has quickly become one of the top diving companies in the world. As a 100% Palauan-owned dive center, Sam’s Tours is a proud key player in the local community. They work with top tour guides to ensure you have a spectacular experience. They embrace the laid-back island life and want you to enjoy all the good and beautiful things our planet has to offer. Sit back, take a deep breath, and exhale all the stresses of your daily life – Palau awaits!

    What prior travelers say

    “Our first trip with Divenutres was spectacular. They handled all of the boring parts of travel and left the fun parts to us. I truly felt that they went above what was expected in resolving the unexpected. The dives themselves were incredible, with a professional local team responsible for doing much of the heavy lifting. This left us to focus on the dive experience itself.”
