Great service. Our dive lead, Neil is one of a kind. I really would recommend this dive center if you are going to dive in Palau.
Major disappointment. If you like mass-diving operations, it is your place. If you want small groups and a dedicated capable guide, better you go somewhere else. They change my guide and boat every single day (5 days, 5 different guides). Guides are generally kind and prepared, with some exception of rude and impolite behavior. Our boat was always the last to arrive on site, with the result that main dive sites were already packed with divers. Dive sites are generally amazing, but if you are unlucky in finding bad weather, scarce visibility, or not a suitable site for sharks (e.g. when you have beginners in the boat that can't deal with strong currents, or finish air quickly), dive guides give 0 added value in trying to show you something else, e.g. some macro life on the reef. Front desk and reservation staff are kind, but offer no flexibility. They also charge you the credit card fees (different from other activities in the island) - credit cards help the dive center make money, so they should absorb the costs of it, or at least share. Also, they offer no discount for dive packages of multiple days - opposite of what is a common practice in the industry.
