Palau August 2008

Time of Year You Went: August 2008


In Palau we stayed at Carolines Resort and on the Palau Aggressor.  In Yap we stayed a week at the Pathways Hotel and our diving was with Beyond The Reef Divers.

Everything was awesome! The arrangements Fly and Sea Dive Adventures made for us were flawless!!!!! The couple days in Palau before the liveaboard we did Koror sight seeing, a helicopter tour and souvenir buying. We met a local fellow (Fuanez from Fish and Fins) and he showed us around for a few hours... he was invaluable. Then we boarded the Aggressor... the boat, the staff, the diving - fabulous. We were sad to leave as we felt like we were saying by to good friends. They took such good care of us above and below the water... they have set the bar for future dive excursions.

The week in Palau was incredible, and thanks to Fuanez, we felt like we knew the "city" and were comfortable going it on our own. The staff at Sams Tours were great - professional and fun! The Carolines was everything we had hoped for - and such nice staff too. The people of Palau are pretty fantastic.

Yap - wow... Colonia is so tiny. The people even make due with less than the Palauans - but again, so kind and generous. The Pathways was so similar to the Carolines only the staff and other guests became almost like family by the time our week was up. The diving was good plus our dive guide and boat crew from Beyond the Reef were excellent.

What an amazing journey. Thank you so much again for all you did for us. You took care of every detail.
