Great dive centre, staff are very professional and so well organised. Fast boats. First aid kit onboard which was appreciated after plankton stings. Guides very experienced. They will fix issues with your gear. Great vibe. Good bar area. Can't go wrong.

Sams Tours is a good dive center, very good organized. But it is also a bit factory diving which means load lots of people on the boat and go. The dive guides are very good. They know the dive sites well. The Operational Manager Rico...More

We did a Rock Islands Nikko Bay kayak tour with our 2 kids. Our guide, Fonzie, was fantastic. He was knowledgeable and fun and we had an absolutely wonderful day. The snorkeling and kayaking were wonderful. Great great place!

The camping expeditions of Paddling Palau are very enticing to me. I would love to hear what people think of the actual experience. Particularly, I would like to know about the quality of the camping/kayak program, and the interest of the company in providing a great experience to the clients. thanks
