Magnificent Diving Sites in Palau, with professional Elite Diving Instructor Tony TANG, Jeffrey, Tata, seamless care by all personnel like Bench, Vera, Phi. Their warmest and lovely faces are sealed in my mind that despite of the wonderful view in Palau, and making new friends, I will surely come back to this Ocean Centers for my next diving holidays.

I (diver) and my husband (snorkeler) spend 6 wonderful days with Palau Ocean Divers in the middle of January 2019. The whole service was excellent. The dive centre provides a pick-up service, rental of necessary equipment, storage of your own equipment and they are prepared to help you with other things, even with activities that are not related to diving – they helped us to organise our land tour to Peleliu.
Diving is well organised, sites are chosen depending on the weather. We experienced bad weather, very bad weather one day, but it did not affect our diving activities. Guides were perfect, knew the sites well and provided all divers with care and help they needed regarding their experience and level.
The dive centre uses comfortable boats, food was excellent, water available and yes, their ginger tea is really strong and warming.
To sum it up. I dive a lot in different location and I experienced many dive centres with different quality of service. As for Palau Ocean Divers, I was really satisfied (and my husband, too) and I am very happy that we decided to dive with this diving centre. I recommend them.

My brother and I did diving with a couple other more well known local shops before trying with thease guys, and we were not disapointed. Their customer service was far beyond the two other shops we visited. The staff were all very friendly and sweet, the dive masters were knowledgeable and fun, and the owners were welcoming and supportive and made sure we got to see all the different dive spots we wanted. Highly recommended!

Serious safety incident
Jul 2018 • Solo
If you are a girl and travel alone, you will find this shop has some very dangerous characters: the instructor told me his sperm is very active so the doctor has warned him he must wear condoms all the time, when I was having food; when he preparing diving equipment for me and passing me, he always touched my waist to pass by; after diving, the staff told me he was moving home that night and asked me to move together with him... When learning diving, students don't dare to complain too much as they have paid fee, on the half way to pass exams and live in this shop - "kidnapped" by this environment. After I'm coming back, I realise this instructor used my photos without permission to put on his social media, creating an impression of relationship, also used on Zhihu, including lots of his female students to show off. it has serious broken the law of GDPR in EU for EU citizens and I'm on process to deal with it. If you are a girl and travel alone, KEEP AWAY FROM THIS SHOP and watch out if they tell you to bring you to see the Milkyway, you will notice those scums approaching their organs behind you. After telling the boss, there is no further action taken. I speak their language, but still found it's very difficult to get an answer.

First, you don't have a proof that our boat operator stole your wallet. He's been working with us very long time ago and we didn't encounter like this before. So if our boat operator is a thief, he will do it before and we will take an action and fire him. Before coming to Palau we always dicuss to our customer that don't bring too much money on the boat and don't bring things are very important maybe you lost it in other places not in our boat. Thank you.

I felt it was a very safe place and the people were very friendly the owners were the problem but its also a very new business but the prices are the best on the island. I appreciate how kind they were and how safe it was. The dive shop was good too if you have your certifications already. They just are not able to teach advanced certifications but that is normal for dive shops. They have all the necessary equipment and all in good condition. I would stay here again for sure. Hot showers, Cold A/C, free coffee and tea and free bottled water. Just wish they took credit cards but its okay there are atms all over palau.

This trip was my best diving trip so far. Angela is referred by a friend of mine who is a very experienced scuba diver. We were considering two dive shops before we decided. Once we know that POD (Palau Ocean Divers) has their own wharf and they actually own 3 boats we decided to go with POD since it's not very easy to get own wharf and most of the times you have to share one boat with other diving shop's guests which is not so convenient. And the other reason we chose here is because that their diving guide will only guide 4 people max at one time, safe is always the most important thing for diving no matter where and when. And the other shop told me they can guide 8 people max if they have too many guests at the same time. and once we arrived and started our fun dive, we stayed for 5 days and diving package was 3 days with 10 dives, 80% was the guide only took 3 of us since we came together as a group and only 2 times with 4 people together which is very safe and all of the guides there they did a very good job. They have at least 5 Chinese guides (including 2 owns Tony and Angela) and 4 guides from Palau and Philippine who can speak perfect English with great knowledge of Palau's diving points. All of their guides Angela herself, Vera, Shuang, Ben and Jeffery are very friendly and experienced and helpful, each time before we went diving they will do a briefing of each point and what we will expect to see and what we should be careful of. And at some points you can ask them to take pictures for you. The shop itself is fully equipped with shower, coffee, tea even hot chocolate, which surprised me was they will bring a bottle of hot ginger tea on the boat for guests to drink which is very thoughtful. Besides all that, Palau is indeed the paradise for divers, I will definitely come back again with my friends someday. Thank you!!

这次的行程决定的几个关键因素:
1. 帕劳海洋潜水有自己的码头,船只.
2. 帕劳海洋潜水每一次一个潜导负责不会多于四个客人,非常负责,安全方面有保证,潜导技术和经验很丰富
3. 在国内口碑很好,相信朋友的推荐
4. 潜店设施齐全,配套酒店,服务很完善.

This is the second time i'm here diving with Tony and Angela. I know some dive shops in this country, but i still want to have fun here and I always will. POD has wonderful instructors, funny dive masters, every one here is so kind. And POD provides comfort rooms for acommordation, no doubt it's your best choice for diving in PALAU, no doubt!
