Tortuga Bay’s annual Thanksgiving trip for 2014 was to the popular islands of Palau. Our group of 16 spent a wonderful week living on board the fabulous dive boat the Palau Siren. All of our diving was off of their two 28′ tenders.
As typical for Palau, the diving was magnificent. Palau offers a unique and varied array of diving opportunities. Of course there is the sheer beauty of the South Pacific and it’s clear waters and vibrant coral. But Palau offers more in the line of unique attractions such at the Blue Corner and Jellyfish Lake. It was also a location for some major involvement in WWII and there are several WWII wrecks to dive on and an interesting tour of the island of Pelilu.
If you haven’t been to Palau we highly recommend you put it on your bucket list. It is a long way to go, and certainly not the cheapest destination, but we guarantee you will not be disappointed.
