Palau Spawning Trips
Full moon trips
When diving at Full Moon, you will experience tens of thousands of Red Snappers rise up from the deep and aggregate to start their mating manoeuvres in a spectacle full of energy and excitement while they change their colours from red to white. Not surprisingly, these huge aggregations 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 Red Snappers. It is something only a select few people ever get to witness and you can now be one of them!
New moon trips
During the New Moon dives, you will witness hundreds of Bumphead Parrotfish aggregating to start their noisy climatic mating dance! With loud bangs male Bumpheads bump their heads together like buffaloes to gain superiority over females with colour changes taking place as the fish prepare to spawn – it is not a surprise they have oversized foreheads! “From the deep, rising from the sandy bottom to the surface like a firework display, the fish release their gametes into the water column over and over again.
A truly unique spectacle!”
