Comments Solid dive operation on a spacious and comfortable converted schooner. 14 divers, 3 dive guides, all dives from skiffs. Fair to good viz. Free nitrox and staff takes care of all equipment including wetsuits. Greeted with hot drinks and towels after every dive. Palau is a dream with healthy reefs, abundant wildlife and sharks and more sharks. Grey, white-tip, black-tip, bull. Reef hooks allowed us to view swirling schools just off the edge. Up close and personal with manta rays, free-swimming octopus, turtles, dogtooth tuna, mackerel, trevally, sweetlips, barracuda, etc. Unique Nautilus experience as they are gently brought to the surface and released. Wonderfully eerie black water dive. Snorkeled one early morning at Jellyfish Lake: quiet and magical. Food was plentiful with tasty vegetables, fish and sashimi. Not as successful with meats and baked goods but I have been assured that the cook has been replaced. Free beer. Caring company with a cool looking boat.
