A trip to Jellyfish Lake is a must for every visitor to Palau! For those who are diving with Sam's Tours we offer frequent side trips to the lake while enroute to and from the outer reef dive sites but we don't actually dive in the lake at all, we only snorkel.
For those who are not participating in dive trips, we offer visits to Jellyfish Lake as part of our guided Rock Island Tours which also include visits to a wide selection of Palau 's other natural highlights including beautiful beaches and snorkel spots. Tours are lead by a Naturalist Guide and include hotel transfers, lunch & refreshments & complimentary use of snorkel equipment.

Getting to Jellyfish Lake requires a short but somewhat steep hike up and over a rocky limestone path followed a short swim / snorkel from the dock out towards the center of the lake where the Jellyfish tend to congregate.
A minimum of 4 passengers is required to ensure our Rock Island tour departures. We are happy to combine bookings to meet our required number of passengers. We also offer customized tours and departures for private charters and group bookings upon request.
Bring sunglasses, sunscreen, hat & light rain jacket; good footwear that you don't mind getting wet and don't forget your camera! Hard soled dive booties are available for rent at Sam's Tours.
And don't forget your camera! Sam's Tours Photo Center rents simple-to-use Canon Digital Cameras and Mini Video Cams complete with underwater housings for those who want to shoot in the lake.
