Fish'NFins is one of the absolute best dive operations we've experienced.
Every aspect of it expresses the owners' and crew's strive for perfection.
Everyone is friendly, professional and extremely safety oriented.  

FNF is a tightly run operation with multiple dive boats available each day
usually. So choice of daily destination is wide. The dive guides were all
fantastic. Very helpful at the shop, on the boat and in the water as
needed, with great eyes for creatures and great awareness of divers,
conditions, etc...

One comment on Blue Corner... It is so famous a dive site it is almost a
cliche. Do not let that deter you. Every dive there is amazingly different
and almost always spectacular! 
Uulong Channel is another unbelievable site. But, to dive it right requires
the tide to be just right and at the right tiem... So, if you're lucky for
it to be just right when you're in Palau, do NOT miss it.
However, nearly all dives are near perfect. So no need to be choosy.

The lunch option for day boats is always very simple, tasty  and fresh. And
great value!

We took an 1/2 day ATV outing one day, which was great! Ken the guide was
extremely knowledgeable and friendly. And the views, as well as the
exciting roads (trails really) were great fun.

Carolines Resort is rustic but comfortable enough. The views, especially
sunset, are wow! 

We'll return to Palau and will dive with Fish'NFins (can't imagine using
anyone else in Palau) anytime!
