I agree with all the other positive reviewers and all mentioned is true. Everything is fantastic about this dive shop in Palau. One additional comment I want to add is I am disabled and this shop and the people working in Palau went out of their way to assist me and make this a great doable trip for me. They did this and did not make me feel bad about my condition but instead allowed me to enjoy every moment, and not put a wasted thought to it. They did this not just for me but did so and will continue to do so for all divers by helping them experience a great place to dive.

PDA was awesome. I have dived with a few companies in Palau, and PDA is definitely the best I have seen. Even when there was no other diver, they still took me out alone to the best dive spots. Dustin and Jason rock. At this point, I wouldn't go with any other dive shop in Palau. Amazing service guys, thank you very much to the PDA team!!!
Palau Dive Adventures offers a unique experience. Jason knows all the secrets of Palau's waters and leads amazing dives -- even the fish like to follow along! The staff is friendly and helpful. With PDA, you get top notch diving in one of the world's best spots, but what really sets them apart is the personal attention and great people. We can't wait to go back!
Our family booked a 2-week vacation to Palau through Palau Dive Adventures that included 5 dive days. The PDA team provided us with the most awesome experience catering to our every need. They were very flexible with the schedule due to weather and our personal needs. Anyone booking a dive vacation and other excursions through Palau Dive Adventures will not be disappointed. We especially appreciated the experience and care provided by our boat captain, Dustin, and our dive guide, Jason. Cheryl took care of all the logistics, including picking us up from the airport at midnight. They are a well-experienced team and provide excellent customer service. Keep doing what you are doing!
I did a ton of research before making my reservation with PDA and it paid off. What I liked about their operation is that Chris is based in US so he's able to answer all of my questions over the phone before the trip.
Even though we only dived with them for a day, we had a FABULOUS time. Everyone in the crew is fun and attentive. We were travelling in a party of 4 and 3 of us were doing Discover Scuba Diving. We were first taken to the Shark City for our first dive to verify that we're up to speed with our skills.
For our 2nd dive we went to German Channel where we ran into a HUGE HUGE manta ray. It was just amazing seeing this giant creature swimming along next to me.
It was THE highlight of our trip. After our 2nd tank we went to the Wreck to snorkel and I actually lost my GoPro because I was careless. The crew turned back immediately and they actually found the camera for me somewhere in the bottom of the ocean!!!
They saved our memories and I honestly cannot thank them enough! Overall we had a blast and we felt extremely safe in their hands. If you're planning to dive in Palau I'd highly recommend these guys!
I was treated like a princess the whole week while diving with Palau Dive Adventures..thanks!
I just became a Certified Open Water Diver through Palau Dive Adventures. Kelli was my instructor, she is a phenomenal woman and a very responsible, patient, calm, focused, clear, attentive and fun loving teacher. I had the thrill and adventure of a lifetime and always will be grateful that my first experience of diving was with this remarkable woman. Palau Dive Adventures did more than provide equipment and a boat, they cater to small groups of people and foster friendships. I highly recommend diving with them.
