Comments The captain and entire dive crew were very safety conscious.We stayed in port the first day due to severe storm rather than put to sea.They were concerned about head count and bottom times with each dive.The dive set up on the skiff and hydraulic lift platform was excellent. The gear rinse buckets could have had the water changed more frequently; they got really foul after 2 dives.Most of the dives involved strong currents and I would not recommend for beginners.This was particularly so at Peleliu Corner where currents from multiple directions,including sudden down drafts, created a washing machine like effect that gave a few anxious moments.Overall it was a great trip for intermediate to advanced divers.
