Palau Warnings and Dangers

  • Beware Jelly Fish

    Don't be afraid of the jelly fish, they should be afraid of you. Don't have lotion, sunscreen on, be sure to wash off before going into the lake. No heavy kicking, paddling, etc. It is a hike up & down to get to the lake from the boat landing. Don't forget to wear shoes down, slipper/flip flops may be slippery since it is rocky.

  • More About Roads

I live in Washington State and I have been driving in snow since I learned how to drive. The muddy roads of Palau however were too much. I was going down a hill and started loosing control when...

  • All You Can Eat Lunch Seafood Buffet...

    You may ask, which the plethora of sharks around Palau, why there aren't any shark attacks reported...I think the answer lies in the abundance of what can be termed "other stuff that tastes better to eat".While a hungry shark might be tempted to go after a diver, there is more than enough fish to keep these big guys fed.

  • Maneater...

    Whilst the sharks appear to be well behaved in the waters around Palau, best to beware of the Napoleons.... This big guy looks like he is about to make a tasty treat of of this poor unsuspecting diver....
