One of the best Diving Centre in Palau. Comfortable boats with marime toilet, good lunch. Very friendly staff. Despite the fact that the diving center is focused on the Japanese, the staff speaks English. Dived with this club for 5 days. Highly recommend. Special thanks to Paula.

Blue Marlin的辦公室位於帛琉老爺大酒店裡面,且離主要住宿區很近,對於入住這裡的遊客來說非常的方便。潛導們熱情、友善且專業,中午便當意外的好吃,船隻也維護的很整潔乾淨;典型的日式優質服務堪稱五星級潛水享受! 我們兩天都跟Paula 潛水,她不只專業、充滿活力,她對海洋的熱情更是幫整個潛水經驗大加分😉 Blue Marlin office is located right inside Palau Royal Resort; super convenient for tourists stay in PRR. Nice people, professional & cute guides- the most important factor to make an awesome diving experience! We dived with Paula, who is not only a professional guide but also a wonderful company to have fun with :) Good services, yummy lunch boxes. Nice, clean and comfortable boats. I would definitely recommend anyone to dive with Blue Marlin! Thank you for the perfect diving experience, Paula.

Having dived at various places around the world, we can seriously say that, not only is the diving in Palau exceptional, but Blue Marlin was such a delightful organization to dive with. They care. They show, and know fish, they know the waters, they know when to dive and where. Even the food on the boat is great. The school itself is very well laid out with washing basins and a warm shower on your return. We really recommend them strongly. Plus, their pricing is the best on the island. Both our guides Paula and Tommy was very professional and impressive. They did a fantastic job.

I have dived with Blue Marlin for many times, also dived with other shops. I sincerely say, Blue Marlin probably is the best in Palau. The location is inside one of the best hotels, Palau Royal Resort, which is super convenient and high quality. Blue Marlin has its own port, boat, equipment, etc. You may take a shower and clean equipment after diving. The lunch varieties are a lot. You may find any kind of food you want here, Japanese, Chinese, American, Thai, Italian, etc. That's amazing! The best part is, service. This shop is owned by a Japanese which stands the best service standard in the world. Not only Japanese but also English-speaking staff here. You may enjoy your time all the journey to every single diving spot. Oh by the way, I highly recommend a staff here: Paula. She is a German and speaks very fluent English. She is so passionate on her job and gives you a lot of energy enjoying the gorgeous scenes in Palau!

I decided to make a reservation with Blue Marlin because a diver whom I met on a liveaboard in Maldives strongly recommended it. After spending my 2-week vacation (and logged almost 30 dives) with them, I can also highly recommend the dive shop for the following reasons: - Staff are very professional, working hard and attentive so that every one on the boat is safe and comfortable. - Boat coat and Nitrox (32%) are available for free. - All of their boats are equipped with marine toilets and super comfortable. (It is very important, as getting to most dive sites near Koror requires a 45 minute trip through the rock islands.) - The price is ultra-competitive compared to the other dive shops in Koror. They offer a special discount, 2-dive trips for $100 per person when booked online. - Lots of variety for Lunch to choose from (Vegetarian/vegan friendly meals also available, which is really important to me as lacto-obo vegetarian. Please make sure to order beforehand if you have a special request. :-) Main divers using this shop are Japanese but the shop is welcoming all other nationalities. Most of the staff can communicate in English and there is a multi-lingual, super nice (& super tall) German guide Paula, who joined recently. The wonderful diving experience with them made my 2-week vacation a really memorable one. I can't wait to go back there again!
