The trip was beyond belief.  This was my first dive trip.  I was certified
for 1 week before I went and my husband was an experienced diver.  The
diving was superb for both novice and experienced.  We hired a private dive
guide who stayed with us for the entire 10 days we were there and showed us
the most remarkable marine life imaginable.  It rained most every day but
the water was very calm with the exception of one day.  Sams Tours is the
most effecient place I have ever seen.  Friendly, helpful, and very
reliable fleet of boats and guides.  They took us to the best sites
depending upon the currents and visibility each dive and the lunches they
provided were exceptional.  By the time we left Palau, we had 18 memorable
dives in Palau for our dive log and made many new friends at Sams.  Palau
is a definite YES when it comes to diving for any level and remarkable
underwater experiences.  The Palau Pacific Resort is a wonderful resort. 
They wait on you hand and foot and the food was supurb!  We will be a
repeat guest!
