What Our Guests Say


“Personalized dive service at it’s finest.  Wouldn’t think of diving with any other operator in Palau!” 

Dr. Bill Bushing

Dr. Bill Bushing

I’ve dived in many places throughout the world. Palau Dive Adventures more than lived up to my high expectations.  I did 30 dives and two trips to Jellyfish Lake with them. They are a friendly, personable and safe operation and you get to know the crew well since you dive with the same team and group of divers every day. Diving was… well, fantastic. I think Palau is now my new favorite dive destination… so much biodiversity it was hard to figure out where to point my camera! I hope to return and dive with them again soon!

Geoff and Susan Walsh

“Best dive operator we’ve ever been with. Period. Fantastic crew, spectacular diving, non-stop fun. Diving with the same guides and small group of guests every day for the week means everyone gets to know each other and really interact more between dives, adding to the enjoyment. The only downside is at some point we had to leave paradise and return to reality.”
