Safety Precautions to Protect Yourself and others

Guest Options

At Palau Dive Adventures we pride ourselves on ALWAYS putting our guests first. As many who have been diving with us over the years can attest, your safety always comes first, this includes not only below the water but on land.

We do feel Palau is safe at this time. Having a small U.S. military base, U.S. Embassy, and a National Hospital does provide us an extra layer of security and safety.

If you are in good health, the risks are minimal. However, each person must make their own decision about whether they want to get to Palau or not.

If you have booked a dive trip with us or a dive package that includes hotel, we have contacted the hotels we work with and ALL of them have agreed that any bookings made through us, will have no change fees charged. We will also waive our change fees.

So, if you have an upcoming trip and would like to postpone your trip to a future date, we can do that, no problem.

Just contact Grace our reservationist and she will put your trip on hold and when this is over, we can reschedule your trip.

If you come, the diving has been great, (we have the pics to prove it ) the weather is warm and clear and we look forward to having you as our guests.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us via email or call our office at +1-310-321-2558.

If you like to talk to me directly when I am not diving I can be reached at our  Palau phone number, +1 680-488-5387

Please check this post as we will keep this updated daily when new information becomes available.

Kindest regards always,
