This is a good operation and the boats are nicer than the cattle boats used
by other operations in Palau. This is important because the trips out to
the dive site take awhile. The dive staff was friendly and knowledgeable.
When in Palau make sure you visit Jelly Fish Lake at least once. The trip
is overpriced - it's just a snorkel through tens of thousands of stingless
jellyfish - but not to be missed. Blue Corner is better for experienced
divers with a reef hook (buy one before you get here, I can't believe
they're that expensive back home). The hook will keep you suspended in the
fast current as you watch the sharks school by, along with an eagle ray or
two. New Drop-Off is a nice wall, many schools of fish. The current
sometimes requires a reef hook. Don't do wreck dives at low tide, high tide
brings in the clear water. I stayed at West Plaza Desekel which is
convenient to the dive operation, nothing fancy, but it's ok. The cheapest
rate gets you a windowless room. There's a grocery store on the 1st floor.
