Review of Jellyfish Lake

Jellyfish Lake
Ranked #3 of 33 things to do in Koror
Attraction details
Reviewed October 3, 2013

Note to readers: Palau government charges $100 US per-person just for the permit that allows you into Jellyfish Lake. You will also pay anywhere from $90-135 for a tour group to take you here. Ante up and do it. We booked through Impac tours for $90/person, which was the cheapest we could find. They did a fantastic job. They picked us up from our hotel free of charge. The tour lasted 6 1/2 hours and included a trip to Milky Way, two snorkeling stops, lunch, and Jellyfish Lake.

Jellyfish Lake is unlike anything you will ever experience. It is a steep but short hike to the lake, maybe 10 minutes. The lake is chock full of amazing, non-venomous Jellies. You literally float in a sea of these amazing creatures in all sizes. A must-do in Palau, regardless of the cost.

I dont like jelly fish as a swimmer - but this is other worldly

Expensive, and quite the trek up and down rocky stairs, but certainly a MUST SEE! An extra $50 for the special permit, and $40 added on to a diving day for the extra boat ride. I loved it, but due to the extra cost... I probably wouldn't do it a second time.

We dove in jellyfish lake in palau.
When ou land on the beach there is a 30min
Treck uphill innthe forest traverssing jagged rocks before you
Descend into the lake. Just this part is an adventure.

Diving the lake is eerie with millions upon millions of jellyfish
Around you. They are like jellynthat will dissolve if you touch them.
Did something else dove to 80-90 feet down and u can feel a distinct
Thermocline, the border between cold amd hot. Down there reminds me
Of the dark side of the moon or mordor. Vry very eerie. Incredible experience.

The most wonderful experience to swim with the jellyfish- they need to be careful to limit the number of tourists through for conservation reasons. Wear good shoes to walk as the train can be slick when wet!
