Derawan Island: The Terrains at Derawan are varied-from walls and fringing reef to caverns. Big green turtles (chelonia mydas), whitetip leopard and nurse sharks, schooling barracudas, napoleon wrasses, cuttle fish, spanish mackerel, jacks and batfishes, and ornamental reef fishes hang out in record densities and diversity.

Sangalaki Island:Sangalaki is the world Capital of Mantas. At Sangalaki the familiar set of Manta Rays emerges from all directions. Their wing tips breaking the surfaces at regular interval. Snorkelling is the way to interact with this gentle plankton feeders. It is not unusual to find them encircling you.Though most of them are about 3,5 meters (12 ft) wide with a white belly, there a few black giant with a 6 meters (20 ft) wing span – we refer to them fondly as the Darth Vaders.

Maratua Island: Imagine you are sitting on a ringside seat, the arena an underwater colosseum at 100 feet, beneath you and abyssal plunge beyond the depth of mortal endurance. The arrival of a lone 7 foot great barracuda heralds for the show to begin. A dark cloud emerges from the distance, like an uprising tornado, as it twirls toward you, the dark mass metamorphosizes into silvery screen of barracudas, thousand… uncountable.

Kakaban Island: The Island of Kakaban is an excepfora marine environment. An uplifting in the area during Holocene transgression, about 19000 BC has left 5 sq kilometers of seawater trapped within a 50 meter (165 ft) ridge, turning the area into a landlocked marine lake. The only other know lake of such nature found in Palau, Micronesia, is a desert compared to kakaban. The lake is teeming with at least 4 species of stingless jelly fish including one of an upside down species of Cassiopea (possibly Cassiopea Xamachana).
