Heres a video of my dive trip to palau / federal states of micronesia.

Palau is proud to be the first shark sanctuary in the world and diving is just incredible!

Awesome video. When I dove Fiji, I would always ask the other divers their favorite diving trip was other then Fiji and the most common answer was Palau

For "big stuff" Palau is nice. For another big stuff location try galapagos, Cocos, or northern Papua New Guinea. Nice video.

Hi, sorry was lazy with answering.

Yea Palau was nice!
For the video, I used a gopro 4 silver and a redlight filter. The most important thing with the gopro video is that you hold it steady (using a camera trace, can be diy). I color corrected afterwards on my computer.

The funny thimg with all liveaboards in palau is that you dive the same locations as when you stay on land (i was at sams tours on land and on solitude 1 liveaboard). However, on a liveaboard you can do 4 dives a day and still relax in between while it is only possibe to do 2 or sometimes 3 dives from land.

Was at all the famous dive sites like:
Blue corner (palaus no. 1 divesite)
Blue holes
Uhlong channel (the best drift dive I ever did)
German channel (palaus manta place)
Siaes corner
Siaes tunnel
Chandalier cave
Jellyfish lake
Some sites at peleliu
...

Over all, I think palau is a very very good *allround dive location*. Enjoyed it a lot.

@snorvich: Your right, these are all places I would very much love to dive one day
