AQUA DELIGHTS…DAY AND NIGHT

Palau offers an unforgettable dive experience. You will visit marine life areas where there are turtles, giant clams, manta rays, barracudas and sharks, as well as 1,500 different types of fish and 400 varieties of coral. Water temperature remains a comfortable 27 degrees C (82 degrees F) year around.

A popular addition to Splash’s offerings is a daily-guided tour by sea kayak. These low impact tours allow intimate access to Palau’s natural treasures as you glide through the Rock Islands on a sit-on-the-top kayak.

You will paddle through crystal clear water over shallow reefs and through mangroves where you will observe native wildlife, birds, and sea life, including some rare species. Highlights include ancient caves, airplane and shipwrecks, tranquil marine lakes, volcanic island formations, and ruins from the WW2 Japanese occupation.

Splash makes it easy to explore the Rock Islands and discover the best of Palau’s hidden treasure above and below the water.
