Comments This was the best live aboard trip we have been on so far.The reefs were just great.I think what made the trip was the boat crew and the weather.Peter Hughes did a first rate job in talking care of our conforts and safty.We didn't have much strong current that Palau is knowen for and the water conditions were very calm.Not only did we get to the Famous sites(BLue Corner,German Channel),they also took us to some sites we had asked to dive.Peleliu Wall was just spectacular a true 10 dive.What I noticed most was the great abundance of sea and coral life in the area.Palau has been a dream distention for our group for several years and we were not disappointed.We took extra time and stopped in Hawaii to brake up the plane ride,which helped a lot on the body.We got to Palau early and stayed at the West Plaza Malakal to save a few bucks.Not as nice a Palau Pacific but only 70 bucks compared to 210 a night.Its also close to town and dive boats.Went on a day dive with FISH and FINS and they treated us very well.If you like warm water high voltage diving with lots big Peligacs,Palau has it all.
