DIVE PALAU on board S/Y Palau Siren

New Moon Bumphead Parrotfish Spawning

Special Group Departure

14 – 27 August 2020
14 days / 13 nights ex Sydney
from $9,995 per person

Wall dives teeming with big animals, macro life galore, impressive wrecks — it’s all waiting within one of the largest marine protected areas on the planet. Palau is one of the “Seven Undersea Wonders of the World” with over 1,300 species of reef fish and 550 species of coral.

This New Moon Expedition takes you to where aggregations of Bumphead Parrotfish begin forming early in the morning. Awaiting the exact time for spawning, hundreds of these parrotfish from all around the area join one another for what is about to be an unforgettable event. Building up to this spectacular showdown, males begin their display of dominance, attempting to attract as many mating partners as possible. As females continue to gather, the school spills out into the blue where the tension erupts into a climatic mating dance. Not surprisingly, these events also attract the biggest predators in Palau such as bull sharks, oceanic blacktip sharks, and hammerheads. Watch how they hunt actively within the large school of spawning fish. This is something only a select few people ever get to witness and you can now be one of them!
