    This is great news! I wonder if the jellyfish are back in large numbers? If anyone has a chance to snorkel the revitalized jellyfish lake please post your experience.

    Not sure if this is good or bad news based on why it "closed"

    We're going in March and the dive op we booked with told me there are mostly small jellies with a few big ones.

    Wondering if anyone has experience the re-opened Jellyfish lake yet? Sam's Tours confirmed with me the lake is open, but they are not yet offering tours.

    I did manage to find an operator that would take me to the Jellyfish lake as part of a snorkelling trip.
    It was good fun, jellies were not millions but thousands but the population is increasing by day so by the time you are there it might be as good as before.

    here are a couple of pics I took when I was there a couple of weeks ago:

    Thanks for the pics Matador! I'll be in Palau in July 2019 and hoping to snorkel in Jellyfish Lake.
