This was the best live aboard trip we have been on so far.The reefs were
just great.I think what made the trip was the boat crew and the
weather.Peter Hughes did a first rate job in talking care of our conforts
and safty.We didn't have much strong current that Palau is knowen for and
the water conditions were very calm.Not only did we get to the Famous
sites(BLue Corner,German Channel),they also took us to some sites we had
asked to dive.Peleliu Wall was just spectacular a true 10 dive.What I
noticed most was the great abundance of sea and coral life in the
area.Palau has been a dream distention for our group for several years and
we were not disappointed.We took extra time and stopped in Hawaii to brake
up the plane ride,which helped a lot on the body.We got to Palau early and
stayed at the West Plaza Malakal to save a few bucks.Not as nice a Palau
Pacific but only 70 bucks compared to 210 a night.Its also close to town
and dive boats.Went on a day dive with FISH and FINS and they treated us
very well.If you like warm water high voltage diving with lots big
Peligacs,Palau has it all.
