Palau: I’m on a boat!

We spent countless hours on a boat in Palau, and I took a ton of pictures of the scenery – they deserve their own post!  Nothing like showing the true beauty of the many islands of Palau, by showing off all the amazing different shades of blue of the water… 

(Speaking of water, some of the pictures have splashes of water on the lenses.  It comes with the territory when diving, and when the boat itself splashes water on you.  Don’t let those drops of water distract you!)

Everything is in order taken, except the first two, as I couldn’t resist showcasing the dolphins first! (And yes, I have video of them too!)

I’m the one diving off the boat above, and Karl is the one entering the water for one of our dives in the last picture.

Palau was incredible.  Many many more pictures to come!  Of dives, of beaches, of our “road trip” around the country (we hit all 9 states in the main island on the last day – woot!)

  1. Lovely photos! Are you guys allowed to swim with dolphins or would that be a crazy idea?

    • No restriction for swimming with dolphins, as far as I know, but as soon as the boat stopped (we had been following them for a good 20 min at that time), and we jumped in the water, all the dolphins disappeared. We could still hear them underwater, but no luck!

  2. Awww, beautiful indeed. I have now added Palau to my list of places to visit before I die – the sooner the better of course…

    • I think it was seriously the most beautiful country I’ve been to. It’s not that other countries don’t have amazing sights, but they also have ugly spots to balance it out. Palau only has the beautiful stuff, everywhere you look!

  3. I’m living vicariously through your adventures and photos. As always, thanks for sharing! Someday…

    • I still can’t believe how lucky I am to have this opportunity now! I know it won’t be forever, so we’re taking full advantage of it!

      And yes, put Palau on your “someday list” It is wonderful!
