To get Palau Maps click here

Big Drop-Off is part of the Blue Corner Complex in the Rock Islands of Palau, just around the southern corner at  7 6'12.42"N 13415'3.84"E

She is about 23 miles from Sam's either going west out of Malakal Harbor and down thru Little Toi or by going Southeast through the lighthouse channel and down thru German Channel to get outside the reef.. The choice is usually made based on water conditions.

She is a very deep vertical wall rising to Ngemelis Island (the Island of Love). Ngemelis Island belongs to the High Chief of Koror and written permission must be held in writing to go ashore here to camp or visit.
