Our fourth trip to Palau and our fourth trip with FishNFins.  Even though
the boat rides take about an hour to the dive sites, they are fun and
interesting trips, the Rock Islands and other sites are beautiful and we
took a number of side trips.  We appreciate this operation and their
attention to detail, especially as one of us is a snorkeler.  The diving
was, as always, wonderful with the coral making a strong comeback after
bleaching episodes several years ago and lots of small and large fish life.
 Blue Corner, Blue Hole, Ulong Passage, Turtle Cove and Turtle Corner all
great dives.  We also went to several other locations (downed seaplanes,
harbor dives) which were very interesting.  We strongly recommended
FishNFins!  They also have a great restaurant serving fresh food too.  The
hote we stayed at was clean, big rooms and a five minute walk from the dive
shop (if you didn't want to get a ride).  We had a great time!
