Take in two of the Pacific’s most iconic and spectacular diving destinations with a fabulous twin centre itinerary to the islands of Yap and Palau.
Your first week is spent in Palau, famous for its unique Rock Islands and jellyfish lake. Many of the surrounding islands are rarely visited, and the waters are home to every imaginable species of coral and over 1,500 species of fish inhabit the rich reefs, with sharks and barracudas a common sight.
Yap is the most intriguing island in Micronesia, with a unique culture and heritage, including giant stone money, grass skirts, and traditional men’s houses. Large numbers of manta rays that remain resident year-round are the big draw for divers.

Dive with Yap’s manta rays!
Yap offers a whole range of diving, from drop-offs, gentle slopes and channel drifts, to the protected confines of Colonia harbour, from where most dive sites are less than 30 minutes away. Yap is also the world’s foremost destination for seeing manta rays up close and personal; nowhere else on earth are they seen on a consistent basis year round - a fact that has catapulted Yap to the top of lists of the finest diving attractions in the world.
