Product Description:
Palau is one of the world’s underwater wonders and Yap is both the most culturally intact isle in the region and a worthy diving and snorkeling mecca in its own right. This guide is new for 2016, with new images, more information on the outer atolls and updated dive site information. These two western Micronesian islands together offer the best diving in the Western Pacific. Both have stunning natural beauty, fabulous coral gardens and guaranteed encounters with big ocean marine life like sharks and manta rays. This guide introduces you to the most popular and sites of Palau and Yap, as well as some unique and more remote sites that are rarely visited. Although the islands are famous for their wide array of beautiful hard corals, abundance of marine life and big fish dives, there is also some great shipwreck diving in Palau. This new book has over 130 full color images and island maps. Dive-site locations are shown on maps and each site is introduced with general location, most frequently dived depths, the type of dive that can be expected, the dominant marine life to be found and logistical requirements. And it is not only about diving. There is lots to do on land in both islands and Yap, especially, is a fascinating cultural oasis, where life still goes on much as it has for centuries. And the people are incredibly welcoming! In short, this is everything you need to get the most out of your trip to Palau and Yap and also makes for a terrific souvenir of your visit.
