good judgment.  The guides do make careful assesments of divers and then
dive accordingly.

[None]There is water on the boat for rinsing.  There is no real set up for
photographers at Splash, although if one requires something, they are very
willing to accomodate if possible.

This is our 9th trip to Palau, having always been with Splash.  We return
because there is always a new challenge or experience.  This year the
weather didn't cooperate, but several dives made up for any inconvenience. 
There are now 2 juvenile eagle rays residing on the Blue Corner.  They are
curious, playful and willing to be photographed.  We were able to spend 20
minutes with a feeding manta at the German Channel without other divers. 
It was magical to watch its grace and strength.  Unfortunately, our trip
wasn't timed with the full or new moon to dive our favorite site of Ulong
Channel.  Splash is a superb organization.  There are rarely more than 4
divers to a guide.  Great care is taken to separate levels of expertise
among the divers.  We witness other operations with 12 divers per guide. 
The conditions in Palau warrant better care of divers.  Our dives are
usually 1 hour 10-15 minutes.  There is never a complaint.  Steven, Sixtus,
Sherlock, Jackson have a long history with Splash and are phenomenal
guides, boat drivers and divers.  I HIGHLY recommend this operation to
anyone.  PPR is a great resort with an incredible staff.
