The KSC Palau family week is July 11 to 18th
Palau is an incredibly unique country and has been on my destination list for the past 7 years. Home to more than 1,300 species of fascinating fish, 700 species of colorful coral, and approximately 130 species of rare sharks and stingrays, Palau is known as “The Rainbow’s End”. Palau is also recognized for being the world’s first shark sanctuary. Plus, Palau’s Southern Lagoon has earned its place as an UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Palau’s diverse marine and terrestrial ecosystems are perfect for families because they offer experiences for all ability levels, for divers, as well as, non-divers. Palau is steeped with WW II history. Ship wrecks and sunken airplanes dot the reefs and can be viewed in as little as 8 feet of water. Everyone can experience the history and culture of this tropical destination. Parents and kid can see and dive the relics of an earlier time, and have an opportunity to dive German Channel, where they are likely to encounter manta rays, at a cleaning station, and see turtles and sharks up close.
I love diving with the kids! Sam’s Tours has 6 boats to choose from, so parents and kids can dive with friends and other people their age. Youth 10, 11 and 12 years of age are certified to 40 feet, presenting plenty of ocean area to see and explore. It’s one of the few places in the world where they can safely dive wrecks, reefs and see big animals.
Sam’s also has a boat for young adults that dives 70 feet and caters to youth 14 to 17 years of age. Plus, a boat that dives 40 feet for kids ages 10 and 11 who are already certified, or for those who just want to snorkel. In addition, kids 8 years of age, with Seal Team, get to do the nautilus dive with the entire group.
Kids can even take their PADI Advance Diver or Jr. Advanced Open Water certification in Palau. Just log onto www.padi.com and sign up for the eLearning ahead of time. You will get your quizzes out of the way and we will do the rest for you in Palau.This does need to be pre booked so give us enough notice and we will include the course in your child’s package. . PALAU 2015
See if you can spot mandarin fish alongside the dock at Sam’s Tours or opt for a treat, such as, a family swim in Jellyfish Lake or shark dive at Blue Corner.
Non-diving family members have the benefit of enjoying great land and water activities including; island tours, history and cultural tours, surfing, snorkeling, shopping or spa services.
The meals are truly incredible and breakfast includes a large variety of Japanese and American cuisine. Want to request a specialty omelet? Just inform the on-site chef to add your favorite fixings.
Families will be privileged to witness traditional Palauan dancers and dinner shows throughout the week. These shows are very entertaining and will provide more insight into Palau’s vast history and culture. VIP Guests are invited to speak and a chance of meeting the President of Palau is an added honor and very special experience. He is truly inspirational.
The adult diving program satisfies all dive levels, from deep wrecks and walls to shallow reefs and caves. There are an abundance of turtles and big schools of fish, perfect for photographers. Warm water and calm seas this time of year make it wonderful to enjoy. The Palau Royal Resort is just across the street from Sam’s Tours and transportation is provided daily. Dermot (father of four) and Marc (a natural with kids) run Sam’s Tours and are always very happy to do whatever they can to help. Adults and kids will have a blast painting throughout the week, one of the many highlights of this trip!
We’ve done this trip with 2 and 3 year olds and they have enjoyed the kids’ program along with all the Sassy kids’ ages 4 and up. We normally have about 4 or 5 in this group. There are approximately 5 or 6 Seal Team kids’ ages 8 and up, 5 or 6 Jr. Open Water certification course students, and 15 to 20 certified kid divers ages 10-17. With fun adventures longing to be had and new friends waiting to be made, Palau Family Dive Adventures will take you to a pristine environment that will make the travel time well worth every minute.
I’m very happy to talk with you about Palau. Please feel free to give me a call. Traveling as a group gives everyone the perfect opportunity to meet each other and get acquainted, so there is no shyness on arrival. Each family will receive a Palau T- shirt and hat. We look forward to seeing you this summer. Thank you for sharing your family with ours.
