Comments This was a 10 night trip on a very well kept liveaboard.Crew,cabins,food,& diving were all great & all stayed on schedule.The boat was well arranged for divers'comfort.All dive gear stayed set up on the skiff so the boat dive deck was very roomy with a large camera table.Palau offers small to large creatures but the dive sites are mostly geared to seeing the large ones such as the shark & fish parade at Blue Corner with the large Napoleon Wrasse coming all around hooked in divers & the mantas in German Channel+ an ornate eagle ray...all were feeding...none on cleaning stations...so we had to swim to get good views.Saw green & hawksbill turtles,schools of fish,bumphead parrot fish,disco clams & giant clams.Lots of current equals lots of fish & variety of creatures.Jellyfish Lake is unique with thousands of stingless jellyfish to snorkel among.Chandlier Cave is also unique with lots of formations in several different "rooms".We also dove 2 wrecks of WW2 & our last outing was a boat tour thru the Rock Islands stopping at points of interest.We had 4 led dives of 60 minutes each day.
