I've been diving all around the world and I I was skeptical about going with what seemed to be the assembly line type operation - but these guys have their stuff together. Amazing team - and everyone - I mean everyone - was sincerely interested in provided excellent service. This is the place to be.

This time, we were lucky to do the Red Snapper spawning with the team of Unique Dive Expeditions, part of Sam's Tours. The dives can be a tad challenging with ripping currenty and... More

And Sam's is the best dive operation as well. Neil, Cello and Captain Chris took excellent care of us all week. The other employees were friendly and helpful as... More

Great dive centre, staff are very professional and so well organised. Fast boats. First aid kit onboard which was appreciated after plankton stings. Guides very experienced. They will fix issues with your gear. Great vibe. Good bar area. Can't go wrong.

Sams Tours is a good dive center, very good organized. But it is also a bit factory diving which means load lots of people on the boat and go. The dive guides are very good. They know the dive sites well. The Operational Manager Rico is super friendly and helped us to go to the dive sites we wanted to... More

We did a Rock Islands Nikko Bay kayak tour with our 2 kids. Our guide, Fonzie, was fantastic. He was knowledgeable and fun and we had an absolutely wonderful day. The snorkeling and kayaking were wonderful. Great great place!

Anyone who has dived Palau from a land based operation knows that the boat rides are long so you might as well make the trip with some fun and interesting people. Our guides were Rikkie (don't loose that number) Sharon (she never would say... More
