Introducing Palau

Consisting of over 500 islands, Palau is a highlight of Oceana, sitting alone in the Pacific Ocean waiting to be discovered by new divers. However, its solitude only comes in the form of humans, as the marine habitats of the archipelago offer a wide array of animals to meet during your travels.

Health and Safety

Crocodiles. That’s about the only thing to be on the lookout for. Attacks are rare, but keep your eyes peeled. In the water, the same goes for bull sharks.

Be Aware

Palauan people are known for being very nice and giving, do the same in return and you’ll be in good shape. Rudeness is rarely seen, but if you project it at them, they’ll give it back to you tenfold. Stay civil.

Costs

Dive packages typically run a week and include room and board, and can run anywhere from $1,000-$4,000USD. If you’re going for a dive without the package, a full day with two dives will cost around $200USD.
