Hands down best crew and best diving!

This was the best of three liveaboard trips I have taken (all be superb). The crew was very accommodating and personable; the worked as a team and new the dive sites and weather data very well. Peleliu tour was also a great experience... Being a U.S. Marine, it was a more personal experience! Outstanding!! Will be back!!!

Thoughtful crew made this the most comfortable dive trip I've had

The diving was amazing, especially German Channel and Blue Corner, and being conveniently near dive sites made for less time on the little boat. Food was incredible - something was available to nibble around the clock and the meals were very impressive for boat fare.

Good boat, so-so diving

The boat and the crew was good - the diving arrangement was not very good as the dives were arranged in destined time (7am, 10am, 1:30am,4:30pm, 7:30pm), some of them might not very fit well into the tide time.

Great diving on a great boat

Great diving all around with an efficient and nice crew. Up to 25 dives possible in 6 days, all really good with some particularly outstanding ones (Blue corner, Sies Corner, Ulong Channel). Schools of Barracudas / Jacks / Snappers, plenty of Grey Reef Sharks

Luxury diving with high class chef and best crew

Since I bought this trip at discounted price through Liveaboard, the 100% best price guarantee website that I trust so much, I am happy with everything on the trip. The food is too good to be true. I am a vegetarian yet I find the foods are really great in terms of nutrients, creativity, presentation, and taste. If you are a non-vegetarian, I am sure this could be one of your best food experience. Dive masters are really so friendly and kind. I can feel the sincerity in their service and they really know what they are doing. Boat and cabin are also very clean and comfortable. It is well maintained and regularly cleaned. Diving itself, is good. I like the cave experiences most. We saw manta, napoleon, sharks, eel, big clams, schools of barracuda, turtles, purple square fish, dori, etc. What can be improved: I feel like this trip is about dive, eat, and sleep. It would be great if LOB offers yoga or dance classes complimentary to encourage people to work out and stay fit during the trip. Especially for people who don't want to do night dives, it will be good if there will be some meditation or exercise activities offered.

Live-aboard for hard core divers, most possible number of dives, and all around the diving.

Dive diversity, and returning to the best locations - was great. A bit of a let down that from a week trip, three nights are actually in the port, defeats a live-aboard experience in a way for these three nights. In other live-aboards, was always possible to have lunch on a remote island, or at least a visit to such a place. Not possible here. But overall, crew worked hard on giving us the best possible Palau experience, which they did, and thats what important.

Recommended for
For anyone looking to max the number of dives in different locations - thats the one. Dedicated crew, very helpful and professional. Great kitchen.

Amazing trip, ending could be improved

All in all the trip was amazing. Amazing diving, experienced guides, lots of dives, great wildlife... The last day we got free time on land in the city and then we went back on the boat, then again back on land to eat and then again back on the boat... Would've preferred that they had something better arranged for the final day.

Terrific experience, didn't want to leave at the end.

The diving of course. There was a nice range of dives types, plenty of coral gardens, walls, some open caves and wrecks. The highlight of these was probably the hook in dives (i.e. Blue Corner, Peleliu corner/express), allowing you to sit back, relax, and watch the sealife enjoy a strong current.
