1. What is the best time of the year to visit Palau?

Probably the most frequently asked question

Palau is located 400 miles north of the equator and is totally out of typhoon range. The weather is typically the same any month of the year. Many years ago we experienced the phenomenon of DRY and WET seasons. However, due to global weather changes this no longer applies. The reefs around Palau and inside the lagoon allow us to dive and enjoy the water throughout the year. Since 1972, Fish 'n Fins has not cancelled a single day of diving!

2. Do you provide transportation to and from your dive center?

Yes! We provide free transportation to and from the Dive Center to all our guests! You can be dropped off at your hotel at the end of the day and picked up every morning.

3. Can I see what your previous customers thought??

4. What diving experience do I need in Palau? Is it safe for a beginner?

We are very proud to welcome all levels of divers to Palau! With our experienced staff, we can train and take any diver.

5. Do you have any services for people with disabilities?

Yes we do! In fact, we have an Instructor on our staff trained to work with blind divers. We annually take diving a group of deaf divers from Taiwan.

7. Is there a market in town?

Yes, Surangel and Ben Franklin are full service grocery and dry goods markets. The selection of goods is not extensive, but almost everything is available.

8. Are DIN valves available?

Yes there are DIN valves available.

9. If my equipment breaks, can I get it repaired?

Yes, we have a workshop with certified repair technicians on staff.

10.   What type of wet suit should I wear?

3mm is fine, the water here is warm enough for a skin or T-shirt.
