Fantastic week on the Black Pearl

The highlight of our trip was probably the early morning Bumphead parrotfish new moon spawning in Palau. We had never seen anything like this before. But many dives were truly outstanding. Free nitrox allowed us to use it for every dive. It would be easy to gain weight on this trip because the food is terrific and there’s a lot of it! Most importantly the dive team and the boat crew were wonderful. We highly recommend The Black Pearl.
