Marine life

Divers joining the Palau Siren on these cruises will have a chance to witness one of the most spectacular natural events on earth, the spawning aggregations of the Bumphead parrotfish (Bolbomeotpon Muricatum) that occur at new moon and the red snapper (Lutjanus Bohar) at full moon lunar cycles.

At new moon, thousands of Bumphead parrotfish gather together in one area at one particular time each month. Building up to a spectacular showdown, males begin their display of dominance, attempting to attract as many mating partners as possible. As females continue to gather, the school spills out into the blue where the tension erupts into a climatic mating dance. At full moon, red snappers aggregate to show their own similar spawning spectacle full of energy and excitement. Not surprisingly, these events also attract the biggest predators in Palau such as bull sharks, oceanic blacktip sharks, and hammerheads. Watch how they hunt actively within the large school of spawning fish. It is something only a select few people ever get to witness and you can now be one of them!
