Many tourists visit Palau to take boat tours of the beautiful Rock Islands and pay lots of money for these tours.

With Global Diving Adventures you travel each day through the Rock Islands on your way to and from the dive sites at no additional cost and receive the same tour the tourists are paying for. It's hard to come up with the name of a pacific fish that doesn't call the waters of Palau, Peleliu or the Rock Islands themselves home.

Besides the world famous dive sites you can drop in the water anywhere and see the underwater world whether you are a snorkeler or diver. Of course the divers do see things much closer but..... I have found the local dive operators and boat drivers which Global Diving Adventures provides to be the best in the world.

Palau was home to two seasons of "Survivor". The people of Palau and the surrounding islands are unsurpassed! Roberta Skidds, Founding Member since 1999.

WHY WE THINK THIS PLACE ROCKS (no Rock Island pun intended!)

Palau to us is synonymous with diversity. What we mean by that is that each day holds an amazing new adventure both above and below the water. One day, we will dive the famous “blue corner” cavorting with sharks, rays, huge schools of jacks and curious napoleon wrasse. The next day we’ll snorkel with a million stingless jellyfish. We will dive through blue holes and walls of butterflyfish and over the edge of dizzying drop-offs. We will enjoy sunset on a beautiful beach at the top hotel in Palau and photograph the incredible mushroom shaped Rock Islands. We will explore WWII history on the island of Peleliu and dive with manta rays in German Channel.

It simply goes on and on and on in Palau. GDA is pleased to return to Palau in the spring of 2012 for another adventure of a lifetime!


We will arrive in Palau on Sunday, March 11th and stay for two glorious weeks. You can join us anytime and stay as long as you’d like. Each day we will board our dive boats for the stunning drive through the rock islands to dive world famous dive sites like Blue Corner, Big Drop and Peleliu Express. Some days we will return to the white sand beaches of Palau Pacific Resort for a relaxing afternoon and other days we’ll be adventuring all day long discovering WWII relics, exploring marine lakes full of surprises or kayaking through the mangroves. As usual, we will have our own private dive boats to take us where and when we want to go and there’s always something special and unexpected along the way! Join us in the spring of 2012 to one of the world’s most iconic dive destinations!

Join us at Palau Pacific Resort for anywhere from 7 to 14 days of incredible diving!
