This was my third time in Palau and first time with Fish'n'fins.  There was
no availability on liveaboards for the period we wanted to travel
(Christmas/New Year) for our party of four.  Given my past experience, I
was weary of the limits of day-boat diving during the peak season.  I was
particularly concerned about being limited to the typical 'two outside reef
dives + optional Chandelier Cave dive' template. Navot Bornovski, who
together with his wife Tovah owns the operation took the trouble to address
my concerns by email before we arrived.  During our stay, Navot made a
point of calling each evening to enquire how satisfied we were and where we
wanted to go on the next day.  After a couple of days, we were effectively
assigned our own boat, with a couple of like-minded divers we met there. 
Boat driver Silas and Dive Guide Clint were both excellent and delivered
superb diving.  In six days we were able to return to the best sites:  Blue
Corner and Ulong Channel on a few occasions.  We also had excellent dives
in Peleliu Cut and Express and at German Channel. I was very pleased with
our experience and highly impressed with Navot's willingness to accomodate
our requirements during the peak season.
In previous visits I stayed at the excellent Palau Pacific Resort.  This
time we chose Caroline's Resort which is more rustic but offers beautiful
views in addition to complimentary access to the PPR's facilities. Highly
