One Snorkel, Two Fins, Thousands of Jellyfish

Posted by on March 5, 2012

Jellyfish Lake

In the “Most Surreal things I’ve ever done” department, Palau’s Jellyfish Lake is right up towards the top.

Jumping in the water with thousands of jellyfish floating about would normally seem like a really bad idea. Those first few seconds, swimming into Palau’s Jellyfish Lake and its hordes of the things, definitely feels like one. But, lacking predators these jellyfish have lost their stingers and float in privileged ease through their marine lake.

Crazy day in Oceania.

    Sure glad you found friendly jelly fish. I remember when we were kids Uncle Joe got stung by one while we were at the Gulf in South Texas. Nasty.

      Yea, there’re apparently other lakes around there that are full of jellyfish that aren’t quite so comfortable to mingle with. I didn’t go out of my way to get to those, though…
