Jellyfish Lake, Eil Malk island, Palau, Pacific Ocean

Jellyfish Lake, Eil Malk Island, Palau, Pacific Ocean

Scuba diving by tourists in the lake is not allowed. Two reasons are put forward for this:
- The bubbles from scuba tanks can harm the jellyfish if they collect beneath their bell.
- The anoxic layer that begins at about 15 meters contains high concentrations of hydrogen sulfide which can be absorbed through the skin of a diver which can lead to death.
Jellyfish Lake is currently the only one of Palau's marine lakes open to tourists.
