  • Palau: Snorkeling & Kayaking Odyssey
Overview

Dive In and Explore the Waters of Palau with Boundless Journeys

Micronesia’s Palau, one of the world’s finest marine ecosystems, is full of opportunities for exploration and discovery. Experience days kayaking among the famed Rock Islands, uninhabited and shaped like giant, jungle-covered limestone mushrooms. Filled with sea caves, tunnels, lakes, and secluded white sand beaches, they’re all protected by a barrier reef just offshore.

We’ll also go exploring with mask and snorkel—swimming with Palau’s 1,500 species of fish—in the midst of a coral reef that has four times the diversity of Caribbean reef systems. Just imagine the richness of a natural wonderland that lies at the confluence of three major ocean currents.

On Boundless Journeys’ Palau Snorkeling & Kayaking Odyssey, you can enjoy unrivaled sea kayaking and snorkeling, paddle to hidden marine lakes, hike to waterfalls deep in the rainforest, and dine under the stars on tropical islands of white beaches, palm trees, and warm turquoise waters.

Itinerary & Accommodations

Day 1

Arrival to Koror

Upon arrival of your flight to Koror, you are met by a Palau Pacific Resort representative and transferred to your hotel.

As most flights arrive late in the evening, we will meet as a group on the morning of Day 2.

Accommodations

Palau Pacific Resort
Koror, Palau

Palau Pacific Resort is nestled among 64 acres of lush gardens with exotic tropical flowers. Surrounded by the blue water of the western Pacific, this luxury hotel features a private 1,000-foot blanket of white sand beach with excellent snorkeling and a freshwater outdoor beachside swimming pool. Palau Pacific Resort rooms are all thoughtfully appointed with a range of modern amenities for a relaxing stay.

Day 2

Welcome Orientation; Babeldoab Tour

  • Activity Overview: Walking
  • Activity Level: Easy to moderate

This morning after breakfast our guide meets us in the lobby of the hotel for an orientation to the week’s activities. We begin with a gentle day of cultural touring on the volcanic island of Babeldoab, with its jungle-draped hills and evocative WWII archeology. We drive to a number of wonderful sites, and stop in an ancient village to see a traditional bai, or men’s meetinghouse.

After enjoying a customary lunch of local foods served in hand-woven baskets, we visit Ngardmau Waterfalls. This hike takes us across open savannas, a canopy-covered jungle, clear-water rock pools, and a gorgeous tropical river, culminating in a 70-foot vertical drop at the falls. 

Upon returning to our hotel, we may choose to relax by the pool or explore the white-sand beach at our doorstep. Dinner this evening will be at the hotel, as we prepare for an exciting week of paddling and snorkeling adventures.

Day 3

Nikko Bay to Blue Devil Beach

  • Activity Overview: Sea kayaking and snorkeling
  • Activity Level: Easy to moderate

With immense biodiversity and beauty, Palau provides unrivalled snorkeling opportunities. From the surface, creatures such as turtles, barracudas, and multitudes of colorful reef fish can be observed gliding among dense coral formations sprinkled with giant clams, sea squirts, and varieties of anemone.

The sea around the famed Rock Islands, the destination for our first four days of kayaking and snorkeling, is dotted with the sunken remains of more than 75 World War II military ships and Japanese seaplanes. Located primarily in the lagoons around the Rock Islands, these relics have developed their own thriving ecosystems teeming with fish, corals, and other invertebrates not commonly seen along the outer reef. All of the marvels of Palau await our exploration in the coming days. 

This morning after breakfast, we meet for departure by motorboat to the Rock Islands. Our first stop within Nikko Bay is at Disney Lake, which we enter by paddling our kayaks through a small marine tunnel exposed at low tide. In this hidden lake we discover multi-thousand year-old reefs, with cathedral-like protection from surrounding limestone walls, preventing wind and waves from disturbing the delicate marine environment.

As a result of the complete cessation of physical force, the reefs have grown into spectacular old-growth coral gardens, where corals are literally climbing over one another, competing for space. Corals that would normally be constrained by pounding wave action are curled up in magnificent swirling baskets, which are so thin that light shines right through the fragile skeleton. To protect themselves from intense ultraviolet rays, many of the corals possess fluorescent pigments that create a multi-color glow radiating from the reef.

After a delicious picnic lunch, we paddle to Lettuce Coral Wall, a nursery of sorts for small reef fish who will eventually make their way to Palau’s outer reef. The remainder of the afternoon will be spent exploring marine caves, filled with hanging stalactites, botanical treasures, and an occasional sheath-tailed bat. These caves are some of Palau’s greatest geological wonders, with names like Cathedral Cave, Rolling Rock Arch, and Skylight Cave.

In the afternoon, we make our way to our first island camp, Blue Devil Beach, to find our tents and the dining area already set up by our Palau’an staff. 

Tonight, our camp chef will use fresh, local ingredients to prepare our dinner.

Day 4

Risong Bay

  • Activity Overview: Sea kayaking and snorkeling
  • Activity Level: Easy to moderate

With six isolated turquoise bays and two marine lakes, Risong Bay is a paddler’s paradise. After kayaking through a marine tunnel we arrive to a quiet oasis known as Black Tip Lake, where the gentle calls of Bush Warblers and Fruit Doves permeate the surrounding forest. For centuries, female black tip reef sharks have returned here to give birth to their young. The innocent youngsters have no fear of kayaks and will frequently swim alongside boats in an endless quest for tiny fish.

Just outside of Black Tip Lake sits a reef flat known as Blue Devil Gardens. Sparkling blue devil damsels dance between the corals and are so numerous they can be seen from the decks of the kayaks. Black spotted puffers, threadfin butterflies, and cryptic honeycomb groupers liven up the reef with color and personality.

Each of the hidden bays within Risong holds a unique and distinctive habitat. The underwater walls of Kingfisher Bay are covered with multi-colored sponges, while Sunken City Lake protects miniature spires like castles of coral. Along the shore, White Terns and Collared Kingfishers perch on overhanging branches looking down into the teeming waters for their next meal. 

The grand finale of our Risong Bay adventure includes one of the most bizarre physical phenomena in Palau. As tidal waters flow out of an enclosed marine lake, they spill into Mandarin Fish Bay as a saltwater waterfall. The flowing falls can be heard before they are seen as we wind through a narrow limestone passage into this natural wonderland.

The waters have been filtered by their artesian passage through the limestone and thus the bay becomes crystal clear for our final snorkel of the day. In shallow sunlit waters we search for pajama cardinal fish, sail-fin tang, and the enigmatic mandarin fish.

Day 5

Long Lake, Milky Way & Einstein’s Gardens to Ngeremdiu Beach

  • Activity Overview: Sea kayaking and snorkeling
  • Activity Level: Easy to moderate

Long Lake, an environment that hasn’t changed for 10,000 years, awaits our discovery today. We gather our kayaks and head in the direction of the lake as our camp staff packs up for our move to a new island oasis.

We paddle into a small channel opening to a thick mangrove forest, and are amazed by what we see as the channel widens and we ride the tidal current effortlessly in our boats. The kayaks move under a shaded mangrove canopy draped with hanging orchids and epiphytic ferns.

This long saltwater lake is a tranquil habitat for baby eagle rays, turtles, and giant clams. With skies full of tropical birds—White-Tailed Tropicbirds, White Terns, and White-Breasted Wood Swallows among them—there is much to see. 

From this secluded saltwater lake, we move on to the Milky Way, a lovely pale-water nook nestled in the shallows between two islands. The sea floor here is covered in soggy milky-white clay that can be used as a natural exfoliant. From here, we pass through a tunnel to the secluded Secret Lake where underwater attractions include cuttlefish and exquisite sponge life of every imaginable shape and color.

Upon exiting the lake, we come to the nutrient-rich and multicolored Einstein’s Gardens, so named because of the giant “brain” corals found here. The serenity of this protected salt-water lake is powerful. Surrounded by high limestone walls, lush tropical vegetation, and the sights and sounds of myriad exotic birds, it is hard to take it all in at once.

We glance over the sides of our kayaks, into the perfectly clear water of the lake, and find enormous boulder corals of green, red, blue, and yellow, all packed together along the sloping wall of the reef.  The sheltering protection of the high limestone walls around us, combined with the overhanging trees that soften the light falling on the corals, and the constant tidal flow of water through surrounding tunnels deliver a continual supply of nutrients to these living corals.

Tonight we camp at spacious Ngeremdiu Beach, lined with swaying coconut palms and an open grassy field.

Day 6

Stingray Bay to the Patch Reefs

  • Activity Overview: Sea kayaking and snorkeling
  • Activity Level: Easy to moderate

We start our day with a snorkel over the stunning patch reefs of Fantasy Island. Massive table corals, delicate bottlebrush corals, and multi-color stag horns dominate this luxurious reef. Hiding within this coral forest are a number of enigmatic beasts such as the stunning long nose filefish, which travel together for life in monogamous pairs. Many coral obligate species dine on this reef to include the ornate Meyer’s butterfly fish.

Our support boat will then shuttle us to Palm Bay where we embark on a gentle paddle to Stingray Bay. The shallow sand flats are home to swarms of baitfish that are pursued by Bluefin Trevally, plunge-diving terns, and kingfishers. Whiptails and Feathertail stingrays cruise the sand flats to bask in the warmth of the sun and to hunt for buried worms and mollusks. 

Next we venture into the kayak-exclusive Crocodile Hollow and paddle beneath epiphytic orchids and ferns within the canopy covered jungle. After a picnic lunch on Klo Mariar Beach we kayak and snorkel over Palau’s world famous Rainbow Reef.

We finish our day with a gentle paddle to Dreamland Beach where we rendezvous with our boat for a shuttle back to our camp.

Day 7

Jellyfish Lake & Giant Clam Beach, to Loulomekang Beach

  • Activity Overview: Sea kayaking and snorkeling
  • Activity Level: Easy to moderate

Our adventure today will no doubt be among the highlights of the trip as we venture from colorful Rainbow Reef into the secret and surreal Jellyfish Lake, where we encounter thousands of non-stinging jellyfish. Their existence in Jellyfish Lake is a fascinating evolutionary story, tracing its origin back 35 million years to the time when the Rock Islands were first created.

As a result of colliding tectonic plates, erosive forces slowly ate away at the exposed seabed, carving away what are now hundreds of islands with pockets in the limestone. These pockets continued to carve deeper and deeper into the rock until they reached through to salt water.

Over time, the seawater percolated through the porous limestone to create a number of salt-water lakes. With the seawater came microscopic organisms, including a particular variety of jellyfish. Trapped inside the lake, with little plankton to prey upon, the jellyfish were forced to evolve away from their predatory ways to an existence based on photosynthesis. In the end, the stingers became extraneous and were lost.

As witnesses to this evolutionary phenomenon, we float gently in the water of the lake, equipped with just our masks and snorkels. It is incredible to feel the delicate bodies of the jellyfish swimming against us—truly a special experience you will only find in Palau!

Other highlights of the day include snorkeling in Cycad Lake and visiting Giant Clam Beach, a place whose name will be obvious when you see its inhabitants.

Day 8

Outer Reef: Big Blue Drop Off, Blue Corner, Blue Holes, New Drop Off

  • Activity Overview: Sea kayaking and snorkeling
  • Activity Level: Easy to moderate

Today we have the pleasure of snorkeling along the Outer Reef. Big Blue Drop Off is a sheer vertical wall that runs along the whole length of Ngemelis Island, providing some of the most impressive snorkeling in the world. Amazingly, the edge of the reef drops down 900 feet.

Pyramid butterflyfish, square anthias, Moorish idols, sargent majors, and Yellowtail Fusiliers are among the plethora of fish found along the top of the reef. Blueface, Regal, and Emperor angelfish are also easily spotted. Dwarf angelfish, such as Coral Ceauty, Keyhole, and Gray’s dart in and around coral heads, and clarki and Blue Striped Clownfish, with their host anemones, are also scattered here. Hawksbill turtles even like to feed and rest at the top of the reef.

Palau’s most popular dive site, Blue Corner, is recognized as one of the best in the world due to its concentration of marine life. It is the most highly rated site in Micronesia, and features a shallow coral shelf that projects out into the ocean with vertical walls on both sides.

An upwelling created by the currents attracts schools of fish to the top edges of the walls. Napoleon wrasses, Dogtooth tuna, eagle rays, manta rays, white tip reef sharks, turtles, schooling barracudas, and groups of other reef fish populate the area. At least some of these species will make an appearance during our snorkeling adventure here.

In case we haven’t seen enough in our odyssey today, we make a final stop at the Blue Holes, a series of four large holes in the top of the reef that converge to form a gigantic underwater chamber. The chamber, with its large opening in the wall, is home to soft corals, sea fans, sea whips, and hard corals.

Large pelagics often encountered here include tuna, jacks, grey and white tip reef sharks, barracudas, and eagle rays. Groupers, Napoleon wrasses, triggerfish, Moorish idols, butterflyfish, anemones, and turtles are also common at this site.

We return for one more peaceful evening at our seaside camp, and enjoy a well-earned meal before drifting off to sleep in natural synch with the breeze from the ocean.

Day 9

Ulong Island; Return to Koror

  • Activity Overview: Walking, sea kayaking, and snorkeling
  • Activity Level: Easy to moderate
  • Activity Length: 2-3 hours

Our last day in Palau is no less incredible than the previous eight. We depart our stunning camp at Loulomekang for a 20-minute speedboat ride to the island of Ulong. White sand beaches, swaying palm trees, and turquoise bays define this picturesque island. Ulong also hides some fascinating historic treasures including an ancient village site, hidden pictographs, stone terracing, and myriad artifacts from a lost race of Palau’ans.

Upon arrival we kayak from Turtle Bay to the Ulong Arch for a refreshing snorkel and a peak at all four of Palau’s colorful anemone fish. An easy 30-minute paddle through a diverse assemblage of tropical flora will lead us to the historic site where Palau’an’s had their first contact with the Western world. Befriending the shipwrecked Englishmen, Captain Henry Wilson, led to a life-long friendship between the Palau’an chiefs and the Europeans.

We’ll enjoy lunch on the sandy shores of this protected cove before paddling on to the magical reef named in honor of this first contact, “Wilson’s Channel.” Colorful clams, Spider Conchs, and dancing damselfish grace this pristine coral garden.

Our grand finale paddle will lead to Ulong’s most beautiful stretch of sand. It is here that we’ll review the epic drama of where Palau’ans first came from, when they arrived, and how they managed to cross such vast distances to reach our remote shores. We then hike through a thick tropical forest to a UNESCO World Heritage village site that was mysteriously abandoned more than 500 years ago.

Our return to Koror by boat will take us through breathtaking scenery as we cruise through a labyrinth of islands, bays, and arches on our return to the comforts and amenities of the Palau Pacific Resort.

With most departing flights leaving tomorrow morning at around 2:00 a.m., we have time to indulge in some of the luxuries of the resort and share a celebratory meal before our late night transfer to the airport.

What To
Expect

What To Expect

Physical Activity

Boundless Journeys' trips are designed for energetic and flexible individuals who like to be active and have a spirit of adventure and a positive attitude. Palau: Snorkeling & Kayaking Odyssey is rated 2, easy to moderate, on a scale of 1-5 (with 5 being the most strenuous). No prior kayaking experience is necessary for this trip. Our guides will provide basic paddling instruction for anyone who needs it, as well as more advanced paddling tips for guests who already have some prior experience.

The sea kayaking and snorkeling, while not technically difficult, will have you active for good portions of each day. Daily paddling duration is likely to be 4-5 hours, with breaks each hour or so for snorkeling and other activities. On a few of the days you will have the opportunity to do short hikes to inland sites. These excursions will be relatively easy trail hikes in the rainforest.

Meeting Point

Koror, Palau

Departure Point

Koror, Palau

Traveling To and From

Most Convenient Airport:
Koror International Airport, Palau (airport code: ROR)

Meeting Time and Place:
Upon your arrival in Koror you will be met by a representative from the Palau Pacific Resort (our first hotel) and transferred to the resort. Because of the late arrival of flights from the U.S., you will meet the group and your guide at 9:00 a.m. on the morning of Day 2 in the lobby of the Palau Pacific Resort.

Departure Time and Place:
Most flights out of Koror leave very early in the morning (at around 2:00 a.m.). We have made arrangements to check into the Palau Pacific Resort on the last day of the trip, to allow guests time to rest, freshen up, perhaps do some last minute shopping and packing, as well as attend a farewell dinner.

Preparing for This Trip

It is very important that you realistically assess your physical condition with regard to the demands of this trip. The more well prepared you are for the activities, the more you will enjoy yourself! Please consider some sort of strength building and flexibility maintenance for your core and upper body. Done correctly, kayaking makes use of abdominal muscles and the muscles of the shoulders and back. Consult your doctor before undertaking any new fitness programs.

About the Sea Kayaking

It is hard to accurately rate the difficulty of a sea-kayaking trip as much of the challenge is determined by the weather. We plan our daily schedule and routes to avoid strong wind and to correspond with the tides. With the support of a speedboat, we have the option to motor through any difficult conditions and therefore ensure gentle and pleasant paddling. Still, it is important on a sea kayaking and camping trip that you travel with a spirit of flexibility and an openness to enjoy nature and all it presents.

Sea kayaks, especially the type we use, are very stable vessels. We offer both single and double kayaks, of the open cockpit, sit-on-top style. All kayaks offer dry hatches, adjustable seats, and thigh straps. The double kayaks come equipped with rudders.

This trip is appropriate for both those with previous kayaking skills, or for those who are new to the sport; no previous experience is required. Sea kayaking skills are quickly learned, and our expert guides provide paddling instruction and tips throughout the trip.

Camp Life

This trip offers a combination of both camping and resort accommodations. Our island camps are designed to bring as much comfort as possible into the beauty of Palau's natural surroundings. Our staff will set up camp and take care of all the details. Our tents are safari-style with folding cots. Trip members will need to bring their own sleeping sheet or very light sleeping bag, but all other camping equipment is provided, including sleeping pads.

The dining table is set with linens and covered by a protective canopy to shelter us from either too much sun or a bit of rain. Our camp chef will prepare all of our meals, sharing some Palau'an dishes and always using fresh, local ingredients. A freshwater solar shower and toilet tent are provided at each of our camps. We don't use generators in camp, though we do provide a transducer on the boat, which can recharge batteries for cameras and tablets on a limited basis.

Weather

Palau enjoys a pleasantly warm climate all year, with an average annual temperature of 82 degrees Fahrenheit. Given the tropical climate, rainfall can occur throughout the year, though sunshine is still prevalent. Palau is located outside the typhoon zone, so severe storms are generally not a concern.

You can obtain more detailed weather information on www.weatherbase.com.

When to Go

Given Palau's consistent weather patterns, any time of year is good for visiting. Boundless Journeys has chosen dates to maximize the potential for the best weather. And, no matter what the weather brings, the kayaking routes we follow are well protected and there are many options for snorkeling. Palau's water temperature averages 82-85 degrees Fahrenheit year-round.

Traveler’s Responsibility

Trip participants have certain responsibilities to both Boundless Journeys and your fellow travelers. This includes understanding the conditions described in the trip itinerary and making sure it is appropriate for your interests and abilities, based on a review of the trip ratings, consultation with Boundless Journeys' staff, and perhaps your doctor.

In addition, trip participants are responsible for preparing for a trip by undertaking the proper fitness training. At the guide's discretion, a participant may be asked to leave the trip if the guide feels that the person's further participation may be detrimental to the individual or to other trip participants. If you have any questions about the difficulty level of the trip you have chosen, please contact Boundless Journeys to speak with one of our Destination Managers.

Small Group Travel

Small group travel affords us the opportunity to seek out the most remote and exotic destinations on the planet. Often we are exploring these locales with just 6-12 guests. The nature of active group travel is such that not all participants have the same ability level or interests. Traveling at a pace that is comfortable for the entire group, with a spirit of flexibility and adventure are all part of this shared experience.
