However doesn't worth 50 bucks of permit fee. Won't go there again for sure unless with kids. And the jellyfish in the lake is not as much as I expected.
This is a really unique sight and worth seeing (although once was enough for me!). The water is fresh and the jellyfish don't sting; the only thing to bear in mind is that there a lot of them. It's hard to describe other than by saying that at times it's like swimming through a bath of semolina. They are very... More
Amazing experience, you can swim with thousands of jellyfish and touch them. It's a spectacular experience.
$50 bucks extra just to visit this place? Rick at Sams tours talked me into it. I am very glad he did. This was one of the most surreal experiences I have ever had. I won't go more into it other than to say this: IF YOU GO TO PALAU AND DON'T SEE JELLYFISH LAKE, YOU MISSED OUT !!! One... More
This was one of the highlights of the trip. As we swam towards them,we notice one or two jellyfish here and there. I had my waterproof camera and was focused on taking shots of those near me. But before long, i found myself surrounded by literally thousands of these gently pulsating alien creatures. An hour went by in the blink... More

The cost of the permit is pretty steep ($100 at the moment of writing) but if you go scuba diving with a tour operator like Sam's Tours they will take you there without extra... More
I experienced the JFL back in 1997. I almost didn't do it again on this visit, but decided to at the last minute. I'm glad I did because there's been a major change since my last visit: one of the species of jellyfish formerly in the lake is GONE! When I was there before, there were the orange (mastigias) jellies... More
Went to JL today. First off, wear decent hiking shoes, sandles will just slip on the mossy steps and tree roots! I wore some hiking sandles and had some issues, so don't believe you can go barefoot or in sandles if you value your legs from bruises and cuts, not to mention fatigue! We were at the lake around 1pm,... More
This is a "must do" experience if you are in Palau. I was on the Palau Aggressor and this was one of our stops. Being in the lake with millions of these jellyfish was an awesome feeling.
