Planet Blue Kayak Tours
Our Planet Blue kayak tours offer a wonderful way to experience the beauty of Palau's rock islands. Palau boasts more than 300 emerald islands set in crystal clear, turquoise lagoons. Our kayak tours provide the perfect medium to explore Palau's hidden network of marine lakes, mangrove channels, marine tunnels, tropical beaches, and marine caverns, all in the serenity of nature. No paddling experience is necessary. All tours begin with paddling instruction and speedboat shuttles to and from the kayak site to maximize fun and adventure while eliminating long, tiring paddle distances. Planet Blue offers a variety of day tours through the world-famous rock islands. All of the tours are a well balanced mixed of light paddling through calm waters with a combination of birding, snorkeling, hiking and exploring. The tours are led by naturalist guides, armed with maps, books, specimens, and binoculars to help highlight the treasures of this Micronesian paradise. Planet Blue uses the highest quality kayak equipment available. We offer all of our guests the freedom of choosing single or double Perception sea kayaks. These open-top sea kayaks are equipped with dry storage hatches, thigh straps, and incredibly comfortable seats for full-back support. We've chosen lightweight paddles, which are perfect for novice or professional paddlers.

We provide you with dry bags and boxes to waterproof everything from T-shirts to video cameras. Our service is first class. We offer free shuttle service to and from all hotels in Koror. Every tour begins with a review of our tour menu and we do our best to honor requests. After a brief orientation to the kayaks and paddles we are swept into the rock islands by speedboat shuttle to begin our adventure. It was the moon, tides and the winds which shaped Palau's wonders, and out of respect, we strive to ensure that each and every tour is a unique and unforgettable experience for our guests. Although we do our best to honor our guests' tour requests, we remind all visitors that many of our journeys are dependant upon the tides and winds. Each day we'll choose from a menu of experiences and do our best to deliver the tour that matches the conditions. Our goal is to provide the safest, most comfortable, enjoyable, and educational paddling & snorkeling adventure each and every day. Planet Blue offers six amazing kayak & snorkeling day tours that deliver a diversity of paddling trips combined with Palau's most spectacular inner lagoon snorkel sites. Led by world class local naturalists, all tours include a gentle mix of paddling, snorkeling, birding, exploring, and beach time, featuring pristine coral gardens, reef fish nurseries, hidden lagoons, marine caves, limestone tunnels, forgotten WWII sites, ancient Palauan villages, and breathtaking tropical beaches. With speed boat shuttles to and from the Rock Islands, every tour is guaranteed to be a relaxing experience.
