Oceanic Society invites you to the other side of the world to experience ocean life in a way that few other places on Earth can match. This naturalist led snorkeling program will take you to three jewels of underwater wildlife viewing: Ulithi Atoll, The Rock Islands of Palau, A UNESCO World Heritage Site, and Yap Island.
Miles of coral reefs with white sand beaches, secluded lagoons, sea turtles, seabirds, and crystal clear waters that abound with coral and colorful tropical fish found in large congregations; Micronesia is known to have over 385 species of corals and at least 13 species of shark and manta rays, here we will have an opportunity to experience first-hand this region’s renowned biodiversity.
Located northeast of Yap, Ulithi Atoll consists of one of the world’s largest lagoons surrounded by 36 tropical isles, four of which are inhabited. Permission must be granted from the Chiefs of Falalop in order to visit Ulithi, with less than 150 visitors per year, we will likely be the only guests on the atoll. We invite you to be pioneers exploring this breathtaking area.
Fly across the international date line to arrive in Koror, Palau.
Daily snorkeling trips in Palau's reef complex, picnic lunches at Rock Islands' beaches. One day to explore jellyfish lake, and one tour to visit Palau's cultural sights.
