On your first day with Fish’n Fins your pick up will be 7:30 am from your chosen hotel/resort to allow ample time for check-in and sorting out your equipment. If you have checked in the previous day, your pick up will be at 8:00 am from your hotel/resort.
If you are staying at the Palau Pacific Resort, or the Palau Royal Resort, your daily pick up will be from the resort dock around 8:45 am; your drop off after diving will be at the resort pier too.
For each day of your dive package, you simply put your name up against the dive trip you want. There are boats going to most of the iconic sites each day, obviously depending on conditions.
Each trip includes two dives separated by a surface interval of at least an hour in a sheltered spot which usually also allows for a snorkel; a Bento Lunch & Water on the boat, and there will be an option for a third tank, or a trip to Jelly Fish Lake or Chandelier Cave.
The day ends around 4-5pm with a drop off at your hotel wharf, or at the dive centre, where there is an equipment room where you can store your dive equipment for the duration of your dive package.
