The dive sites are accessible within 40- 60 minutes from the base and offer an amazing array of sea life. We didn't see a manta ray but who cares. The guides... More

The staff are very knowledgeable and eager to assist you. In my opinion, the diving is the only reason to go to Palau since Jellyfish Lake is off limits. I look forward to diving with Sam's again.

Their comfortable boat picked us up at the Palau Pacific Resort. At first, we were uncomfortable with all of the activity of their operation. Soon, we learned that the entire staff is ready to provide a comfortable activity. We took the tour to Peleliu enjoyed all that we saw and learned. During the trip back, we had a lovely tour...

Palau is fantastic and going with a great company is worth it. Both diving and kayaking. Our kayak guide was really great as well. We are a family with a Jr diver... More
