Comments We dove with Ocean Hunter III on our 31st wedding anniversary. We have nothing bad and wished for nothing. This is a great and established crew. It's a beautiful boat, plenty of camera room, rinse tubs, places to hang your wetsuite.

I highly recommend that people dive Pelilieu, Blue Corner, Jellyfish lake, some of the best diving in the world, all in one place.

check them out at www.oceanhunter.com
or www.fishnfins.com

Another must do while in Palau is a helicopter tour and/or a land tour to see the monoliths, the jail or Tebang for storyboards. I think Tebang Woodcarvers is the best.

UW Photo Comments I came home from this trip and sold some of my photography. Albiet I was using a consummer camera given to me by Stephen Frink, I got some great images of Turtles, Sharks, and I didn't do every dive. I regret that part. I did get to dive where I'd had a dive accident before and that was awesome.
