You will stay in beach-side bungalows at two different resorts. While not luxurious, the resorts are comfortable and well located to begin each day’s activities.


Breakfasts are at the resorts and feature a variety of Palauan and Western specialties. Lunch will be picnic style during your day’s activities and will be a bento box of Palauan food, a Mediterranean spread, or an Italian salad spread. Dinners are on your own (except for the Welcome and Farewell dinners). There are a variety of restaurants in Koror and a few options in Peleliu.


Transportation on the Babeldoab tour is in an air-conditioned van. The kayaks are sit-on-top Mission XStream 400 Kayaks with carbon fiber paddles and high back seats. While kayaking, there is a 33-foot Yamaha support boat with covered seating that we use to access the farther sites, and can also be used to opt out of kayaking or snorkeling.
