Join our Underwater Photography Dive Trip to Palau

Your host will be profesional underwater photographer Janice Carter. Janice will give two workshops, and you may expect a few presentations and lots of valuable group feedback from your fellow underwater photographers. These workshops will focus on the learning objectives you shared with us.

 

On this seven-night trip, we scheduled a total of 13 dives spread over five days. Palau was the first country in the world that created a shark sanctuary in its waters and. Therefore, it is no surprise you will dive with many sharks like Whitetip Reef Sharks, the leopard shark and the grey reef shark.

 

On top of that, we will visit different Manta ray cleaning stations where it is almost guaranteed you will find multiple Manta rays on one dive, giving you lots of opportunities to make that million dollar photo. We will also visit photogenic Jellyfish lake where you will have lots of time to snorkel between millions of non-stinging jellyfish.

Where will you stay?

You will stay seven nights in a garden of hill view room within the Palau Pacific Resort, the only luxury resort in Palau. The Resort is an island haven for divers and non-divers alike and is nestled in 64 acres of lush tropical gardens with the great Pacific Ocean caressing its pristine white sand beach.

 

Each day you will picked up from the dock in front of the resort by the crew of Palau Dive Adventures. We will valet your dive gear all week, so you don’t have to carry it back and forth from the hotel to the boat.

 

This 7 night underwater photography dive trip to Palau filled with workshops and amazing diving will undoubtedly become a memory of a lifetime for those who are looking for an exciting and remote adventure, with some of the best underwater photography options you will find in the Pacific.
