Diving in a lake is no news. But when you can only reach it by boat, it starts to be more special. Once you reach the jetty, you'll have to climb a few slippery steps up and down. In the lake you will find millions of jellyfish. In the middle of the lake you get more jellyfish than water. Swimming... More

This was a pretty long boat ride out and then you have a good hike up stairs to get to the lake down below...this will take some energy. Snorkel gear and good shoes for the hike. In the end, great place and something you need to see if in Palau.

$100.00 per person entry permit to be able to go to the Rock Islands and Jelly Fish lake is a bit much though.

This should be in everybody's Bucket List. But be aware that a trip to Jellyfish Lake requires a boat trip followed by a hike up a hill to get to the lake. You also need to be aware that unless you are an expert swimmer, you need to have fins in order to snorkel to the middle of the lake... More

Brilliant experience at Jellyfish Lake. You have to buy permit to visit the lake and the fees go towards protecting this amazing place. We bought our permit via Fish 'n' Fins so we had it ready for our trip here whilst on our Liveaboard trip. You can only get to the lake by boat and then you have a climb... More

I learned about Jelly Fish lake from watching Survivor years ago.I looked it up and put it on my must do list. At that time it was $30 for a permit I think, now $100. But I forked it over, as it does include permit for diving as well, and it was worth it. Very unique experience. There are soooo... More

What a weird feeling snorkeling among so many stingless jellyfish. Unique and incredible! Be prepared, though, for a significant hike into it and back out.

My husband and I chose to honeymoon in Palau after we watched a travel show about some pretty amazing things you can do there. This by far is the best and the most unique thing we've done in all our travels! It was quite a hike to get to the lake, and the forest was steep and slippery at times.... More

Snorkeling with the jellyfish was magical and surreal. There are literally hundreds of thousands of them swimming around you! I do not agree with how tourism is conducted here, however. Visitors are not required to shower before entering the lake. And everyone wears flippers. It was heartbreaking to watch the jellies being tossed and knocked around underwater. With enough force,...

Just as amazing as the pictures you see on the internet. It was our first dive (snorkel). Next we dove German Channel and saw giant Manta Rays close up. Then we dove into the blue holes (giant cavern) and exited to a drift to blur corner - where we saw big tuna and tons of sharks. 3 dives ... Three... More
