Close to the Ulong Channel resides another one of Palau’s great dive trips, Siaes Tunnel.  Divers make their way down one of Palau’s famous walls.  At about 70 feet, divers encounter one of the tunnel’s openings.  At about 50 by 20 feet wide, the opening gives entrance to a large cavern approximately 150 feet in length and 40 feet high from floor to ceiling.

One should expect to see large numbers of sharks, jacks, turtles and stingrays in and around the tunnel.  Inside the tunnel, multicolored soft and hard corals adorn and fan the walls.  On the sandy bottom, resting stingrays and white tips reefs may be seen.  Two types of angelfish (Centropyge multicolor and Centropyge colini), hard to spot elsewhere, normally inhabit the tunnel.

Given the dive’s depth, the dive is really recommended for more experienced scuba divers.
