German Channel, Koror Island

#5 of 10 in Nature in Palau
Dive beneath the clear blue of German Channel for enviable views of passing manta rays, tropical fish, and schools of sharks. The channel leads incoming and outgoing tides from the inner lagoon on the island, and its mouth contains abundant and diverse marine life. A range of tour groups offer diving opportunities at the mouth, which remains the only place to explore the waters due to fast currents and a shallow bottom elsewhere. The channel gets its name from the German occupation of Palau, which lasted from 1899 to 1914.

  • The diving spot of Palau is famous for the manta-ta-ta-ta-ta-ta-ta-ta-ta-ta- You can expect big names other than manta. It is not limited to this point, palau is related to the tide, and it seems to become considerably cloudy depending on time, and transparency becomes bad. It is said that it is not said that the sea is dirty because plankton flows in by the tide. When I dived, it was a little muddy. It was a bit disappointing, even if it was natural.

  • I saw manta here twice in the past because there is a cleaning station of the standard spot German manta in Palau diving, but unfortunately, it was not seen this time, but the fish shadow was able to enjoy a dark, colorful fish. If you don't dive, you don't know how good it is here.
