Bump Head Parrotfish Spawning Video
Solitude Live Aboard Palau Diving Video
This area of the South Pacific is home to the expansive islands of Micronesia with strong affiliation to the U.S. A hotbed of activity during World War II. The marine life is beyond amazing, including soft and hard corals, giant clams, sharks, mantas, turtles, and huge schooling fish! This is some of my favorite diving, and it will be my 5th trip to the area. I was tipped off by a guest live aboards are now available focusing on fish spawning. And this particular itinerary we have is part of the spawning magic, we’ll experience Bump Head Parrotfish Spawning! On my last trip to Palau, the crew planned a “Red Snapper Spawning Dive.” It’s one of those dives I hope to never forget! The action was out of this world! We followed schools of Red Snappers as they formed into a HUGE school of swirling fish. The reef sharks were active around the school of Red Snappers. The swirl of Red Snappers rose higher and higher with spawning frenzy. I have never seen anything like it! Click the link above and watch the video. The Palau archipelago hosts incredible reefs and pelagic action! The variety continues with shark-inhabited channels covered in lush soft corals, cabbage patch coral, and favorites like Palette Surgeonfish (Dory), and Clown Anemone Fish (Nemo) on huge Anemones! With a 10 Night itinerary, we will experience incredible diving from a beautiful live aboard with a seasoned crew. Land tours available to Peleliu, Jellyfish Lake, and the Milky Way! What was once an area of war and tragedy, is now a peaceful area with incredible beauty. It is a life changing experience!
