German Channel

One of the Top three places to visit in Palau and THE spot to dive with manta rays here. German Channel is an artificial channel created in 1908 by German Colonial Rulers. Mantas now use this shortcut into the lagoon.

Besides the amazing manta rays this site is famous for, there are lots of hard corals with sandy patches in between coral bommies. Lost of schooling fish like Jackfish and others.
