Plunge beneath the waters at Big Drop-off, a popular dive spot in Palau. Novices will enjoy the rich diversity of marine life on display here, centered around a coral reef that drops down 274 m (900 ft) to the ocean floor. Gray reef, white tip, and leopard sharks are all visible, patrolling the still waters. Look out for stonefish and leaf fish, disguising themselves against the colorful coral. Various tour groups run trips to the dive site, and experienced guides will give you the information you need to have a safe and memorable experience.

  • 如果天气好应该会更美的,我们幸运的看到了大海龟,小丑鱼,这种断层倒是在马代和马来都有见过,并没有觉得多稀奇。 很有名的海底大断层浮潜,这里落差上千米,有着丰富的海洋生物,我们从船上下水的时候还在下着雨点,海水里很温暖,雨水打在身上很凉,这是一种很神奇的体验。
