Palau: The Last of Diving

I’m still trying to put my videos together (anyone can recommend a good software to merge videos?  I’ve been trying Format Factory but with a lot of mixed results).

I posted pictures of sharks, turtles and manta rays, but we also saw a lot of cool fish and other stuff while diving.  The huge Napoleon Wrasse was my favorite!  (And the friendliest of fish, it came so close!)

Cuttlefish!  Can you see it?

Feather Star Fish – they’re everywhere here in the Philippines, see the little legs?

What IS this thing?

How about this metal looking thing?

Triggerfish!  It looks like it’s passing out – it’s just a trick…

You get too close and it attacks!  (Luckily I moved out of the way before it bit me.)

That’s me below!

Me again with some giant clams – see them to my right?

Diving in Palau was spectacular!  On most dives we had over 100 feet visibility (I think the worst visibility was at German Channel to see the manta rays because of the sandy bottom, but that was still at least 50ft or so visibility).

If you ever have a chance to go to Palau (even if you don’t dive), make sure to jump at the opportunity.  It’s a beautiful country and one of my favorite trips!  We did a road trip on the main island on the last day as well, and I’ll definitely share those pictures soon!
