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.

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.
