let us bring you into our world of adventure...

You've heard the stories! Now it's time to be a part of the legend!

Join our next group dive trip to Palau, with Sam's Tours Dive Center and Palau Royal Resort


October 4th - October 14th, 2019
(Non-Divers are welcome too)
All you have to do is sign up and dive, we'll take care of all the rest! 

Palau, a Micronesian Island in the middle of the Pacific Ocean about 800 miles east of the Philippines and 500 miles north of Papua New Guinea, is what diver’s dreams are made of.  A picture postcard.  An Historic World War II Battle Scene. A convergence of currents in the middle of the Ocean where nutrients flood into channels and every kind of sea creature imaginable concentrates.  Rock Islands, like giant green mushrooms jut out of the crystal waters into the sky.  This is as exotic as dive travel gets!  This is the holy grail of diving.  An immense nature preserve with healthy and flourishing reefs. It is possible to see everything from a variety of nudibranchs to schools of Napolean Wrasse to Manta Rays, to Whale Sharks on any and every dive. 

 

The typical week-long trip isn’t quite enough. So, we have arranged for 10 days on Palau, with 8 days of diving (19 scheduled dives). If you want to see sharks, there are 12 varieties of sharks which frequent Palau, and we will appreciate their grace and beauty on every dive. Turtles are our constant companions. Spinning baitfish balls, WW II Wrecks, Healthy Reef Formations, Blue Holes, Chandelier Cave, and a snorkel tour in Jellyfish Lake are all part of the program.

Whether hanging on a reef hook and watching the show along the world famous Blue Corner, or ripping along the German Channel on a drift dive, or slowly and lazily looking for macro-life, there is something interesting and exciting for everyone.

 

Colorado Scuba Diving Academy will be bringing a few lucky adventurers to Palau for 10 days, from October 3 - 14, 2019.  We will meet our group at Los Angeles International Airport and then depart on a direct flight to Taipei, Taiwan. From there, we catch a second flight to Palau.  Since we cross the International date line, we lose 2 days on the way there, but we gain a day on the way home.  We have arranged for 19 dives, Nitrox 32 for each dive, a PADI “Blue Corner" Distinctive Specialty Cert., Flights, Lodging, Daily Breakfasts, Lunches on dive days, and some very special treats while in Koror and around the Island.
