If you have read the other reviews most of my comments will be a repeat but it would be poor form not to add to the list of positive reviews. This was our second trip to Palau in two years and both times we picked PDA - the first time from research and reading reviews and the second time due to our exceptional experience in 2016. We are very experienced divers as a couple and have been to most locations in the Florida Keys, Hawaii, the Caribbean and also the Great Barrier Reef. Palau as a diving destination far surpasses all we have been to and the service from Palau Dive Adventures is exceptional. Once you arrive they do everything for you and provide excellent service on the boat and in the water. Management treats employees like family and it shows in how the employees work together and treat customers. We dive with our own gear so cannot weigh in on rental gear but saw no extraordinary problems with the other divers and their rental gear. The dive group size varied from 7 to 10 divers - mostly intermediate to very experienced but new divers were well supported. One pet peeve of mine is many dive companies focus on getting as many people on a boat as possible making gear up, entry, and re-boarding an ordeal for an experienced diver. With three dives a day there are a lot of tanks but we never felt cramped for space and getting in and out of the water was a breeze due to boat design and the captain's excellent maneuvering skills to retrieve the group after the dive. We always had two very experienced dive instructors which meant when someone ran low on air they were escorted back to the boat so the rest could continue another 10-20 minutes. You dive to your capability not to the limits of others. Their full service approach means transport while there, any kind of reservations or recommendations, and excellent care of your gear between dives and overnight. This takes a lot of work and uncertainty off of the traveler so you can truly relax and enjoy the trip. We will be back.
From the day you we first contacted them for booking, until after the trip was over, we received flawless service from the staff and guides at Palau Dive Adventures. They helped us organize every aspect of our trip, hotel, transportation, etc. When we arrived, they had already left helpful information with our hotel's front desk and mesh bags to store our gear in. They picked up our gear the day before the dives started and had it set up and ready on the boat when they brought us to the dock on the first day. Each day of diving was taken at a relaxed pace, which we loved, as we hate the pressure and rush you feel on big commercial dive boats (we saw plenty of those boats with other dive companies in Palau). The guides were very knowledgeable about the dive sites, gave thorough informative briefings about the site and the route we would take on the dive and even customized the week's itinerary to meet the interests of everyone on board. Each dive was fantastic and memorable in its own way. Our experience was fantastic from start to finish and I highly recommend this crew for your dive trip to Palau.
