The day starts with a pick up from your hotel in Koror at 8 am and transfer to the dive shop for registration. The boat departs around 8:45 am for the journey out to the first dive site of the day. After your dive equipment has been set up, it is time for the first dive (around 10:30 am) which usually lasts 40-50 minutes. Lunch (25 meal options to choose from, including Western, Japanese, and light meals) is at noon, followed by the second dive at 1:30 pm. At 3 pm the boat heads back to the pier and at 4 pm, guests are transferred back their hotels. On 3-tank dive trips, the boat returns at 4:30 pm.
We work with a daytrip provider located in the 5-star Palau Royal Resort. They have spotless facilities for a hot shower or toilet break, a large dive log area, equipment rinse tubs, secure storage area, and gift shop. Over the 30+ years that they have been in operation, they have received several awards from tourism agencies and dive magazines, including the Best Diving Service Award. Their highest priority has always been safety.
Their 5 boats, which vary in length from 25 - 37 feet, are all designed for divers. For safety, each boat has a VHF marine radio, first aid kit, and medical oxygen equipment. All the boats have a toilet. They are powered by Suzuki twin 4-stroke engines that speed divers off to spots in comfort and with ample space (maximum of 16 divers per boat). Their highly experienced staff take divers to the day’s best spots. They know all the best places, and at the best times! Since their founding, they have explored new sites and now have more than 15 original dive sites, not only in the south west but also in the north and east.
Palau is surrounded by warm, tropical water with spectacular reefs, walls and wrecks, making it a diver's paradise. It is famed for its diversity, as well as strong currents that attract large schools of fish and sharks. It is a credit to marine conservation. Palau is also very scenic above the water, with azure lagoons and white sandy beaches. The Rock Islands, mushroom shaped limestone formations with rainforest foliage, provide unparalleled tropical beauty. Watch the Palau diving video with highlights of its underwater action.
