THORNBURN’S SPOT. 07°09.492N, 134°20.280E

Anchor in 12-22 metres on sand outside the cove. This is one of the favourite spots of this pioneer of superyachting in the region. Captain David likes it here because it’s sheltered and quiet, while still nice and close to the south of the lagoon where some of the regions most spectacular dive sites are on offer.

This peaceful anchorage is well off the track of most of the local dive operators running to and from Koror. It’s only a few miles out to the awesome drift dives of ‘German Channel’ where the manta’s play. A little further to the outer reef opening to ‘Blue Hole’ leading to a cave dive called ‘The Temple of Doom’ and the superb drift diving and vertical drop-offs of ‘Blue Corner’ – all at Palau’s extreme western edge.
