Overall rating for UWP's 4 stars Shore Facilities 4 stars
UW Photo Comments Fresh water at the dock. Nothing on the boat. There is a pro that goes on a boat and he does stills and video. Video costs depend on the number of dives - figure on $30. Well worth it since no one will believe you unless they see the video.

Comments Palau Pacific is expensive, but is the only hotel with a beach. The food is so-so and it is expensive to get into town because you are so far out. However, the food in town in wonderful - the Taj had the best Indian I have ever had!
Fish N'Fins is first class. The boats were a little full, but it was never an issue. They were willing to move people and DM's around to meet our requests. The boat ride is an hour each way, so they bring lunch and drinks for you - great tea, by the way. There are still news areas to explore. One day there was a boat at the site we wanted, so we voted to go to a site that our guide (Denny) found a few weeks before. It was great. Hundreds of jacks, schools of barracuda, rays and bumphead parrotfish. Every dive was out of this world -groups of sharks, turtles and thousands of fish of every sort. Bring your ID book and your visa, because you WILL be signing up for more dives.
