Comments Palau Pacific Resort is first class. Neco Marine is first class. They picked us up at the airport.The next day,they picked us up at the hotel and took us to the dive shop.There, we relinquished our gear to their competent care and went out for two great dives.After the first day,they picked us up at the hotel dock and dropped us off at the dock at the finish of the diving day.One tip,pick the Japanese Bento Box for lunch instead of roast beef or turkey sandwich.The difference in quantity and quality is dramatic.These guys took us all over the beautiful rock islands of Palau.In a week we went to the famous "Blue Corner" twice,we went to see Mantas at German Channel twice,we went to Jellyfish Lake,and,the Milky Way.These guys give you more than your moneys worth.Great guys,nice boats and very capable.After 7 days,they pick you up at 1am. and take you to the airport.
