Palau days 1-3

Day one started early, at 830 Sams Tours picked us up and we headed out for Ulong Channel and Saies Corner where we saw unbelievable hard and soft coral for thousands of meters in each direction. We also saw schools of baracuda, turtles, lots of sharks, trident, trumpet, pyramid butterfly, parrotfish, groupers, unicorn, spanish mackerel, hump head wrasse, bump head parrot fish… and many more.

Day 2 we went to Blue Corner and literally rode some amaging current while hooked in to the edge of the wall. Many sharks circled the corner in front of us and rode the current. The current was so strong that the air bubbles dont go up they go straight back… Amazing!! After the Blue Corner we did the German Channel. This absolutely lived up to its reputation; we saw 4 GIANT Manta Rays and 1 smaller one, Eagle Rays, marbled stingray and feather tail stingray.

Day 3 we headed back out to Ulong Channel, Shark City and Saeis Corner. The Ulong Channel brought us some great views again with too many fish to mention. For the second dive we attempted Shark City however we had to abort the dive due to equipment not working correctly. At Saeis corner we had a great dive again seeing several turtles, at the end we saw a turtle about 3 feet across (we work the turtle up from sleeping and were able to watch it swim away).

So far I have about 75GB of video between the helmet and hand cam. I cant say enough how much I like the GoPro cams.

Tomorrow we have an early wakeup and are off to jellyfish lake.
