This is one of Palau’s best dives and it is well known as a pelagic dive site offering divers the chance to see many larger fish out in the blue water. The dive site is on the southern reef of Peleliu Island and like other dive sites in the area, the current is very strong, and so provides divers with a great drift diving experience.

The currents in the area are about as strong as they can get for scuba diving and so the site is only suitable for experienced divers. At times, the currents can be moderate but this would still require advanced training. Divers should monitor their depth and the direction of the current at all times; and because of the speed of the currents, carrying a safety sausage is mandatory for this dive. The wall starts at the top of the reef at around 10 metres and goes down to about 30 metres. It then descends into the deep blue going down to beyond 150 metres deep.

The wall is covered in huge amounts of bright yellow soft corals, sea fans, large groups of black corals and many cable corals. Divers will be rewarded with some fantastic marine life on this exhilarating dive. At the top of the reef, there are many smaller species such as Anthias, Parrotfish, surgeonfish, fusiliers, Moorish idols, and butterfly fish. The real stars of the show are the pelagic fish and divers can see most types on this one dive site. Blue marlin, sailfish, orcas, bull sharks, tiger sharks, whale sharks, and sperm whales can all be seen here. Less common but still possible, are views of pygmy killer whales and silvertip sharks. It is for this reason that it is truly a great dive site.
