Was recommended this tour by our friends who had gone to Palau and of course its amazing. First you go to milky way and bathe and smear the milky sand all over you and you can jump in the water if you would like. It's in a small lagoon and there were lots of other tour boats there but it did not affect the tour at all since they all seemed to have their parking spots which were far enough away from each other. Then we leave and head off to jellyfish lake driving through the rock islands which are magnificent. Then we finally get to jellyfish lake! Before you get in you have to rinse off with fresh water before you take the small hike to the lake. Being able to swim with jellies who don't sting is a once in a lifetime opportunity that everyone should experience. Although I don't know how I feel about everyone using fins since people were swimming fast and hitting the jellies and some of them were being cut in half. There wasn't half as much jellies in the lake as advertised but I know that they have droughts sometimes so even seeing some was amazing. By the time we got there, there was another tour group there but they left half way through our time there so we had the lake to ourselves and the rest of our small tour group. After we left jellyfish lake we went to an island and had lunch. It was a bento style lunch I gave my BF the meat and he swapped me for the veggies since I am vegetarian. After being able to spend sometime on the island we left and finished our tour with checking out different rock formations and seeing more of the small islands. Although this was a great tour if you are looking for a private tour (I STRONGLY RECOMMEND) we found Captain Johns information at the Palau Visitors Bureau (680) 778-7333. He took us out early to jellyfish lake and we were able to be the only ones there. He takes you wherever you want to go just call ahead of time to make an appointment.

We joined one day tour and we only have 2 people so it was like a private tour. Everything was awesome, including milky way, jellyfish lake and snorkelling around the rock islands. Many thanks to our guides and captain: Helen, Yuri, Serek and main guide Nilio. We will definitely choose Neco Marine again next time. 😊

Visited Palau for 3 days diving trip with my son. Right from first go, Kim helped plan the dives with clear messages and pricing. Discount for multi diving was offered without asking. Hotel pick-up was on time. Dive Instructor Aki san and his Boat Captain are very knowledge about the dive sites and what an experience they gave us for 3 days - several sharks, mantas, barracudas...Palau definitely exceeded our expectations. Aki san is a legend there! Will definitely return.

We are both certified and went diving 4 days with Neco. The communication with the team before we arrived was great and clear which made us decide for this club! On site, Kim, was very helpful and organised the trips and diving locations to fit our wishes and so that we can do all the spots we wanted to do! The boat is very confortable and the material that we rent of good quality! Staff was very very friendly and even took pictures of us during the dives and sent it to us by e-mail or on a CD (for free)! Special thanks to Miwa!!! Regarding diving Palau, this is just unbelievable! The best dives in our life and we have dived quite a lot (egypt, malta, Cyprus, italy, hawai, Guadeloupe, Martinique, Cuba, Australia, Fiji, Vietnam, Thailand, Cuba, Mexico and so on...)! We have done Blue corner, blue hole, new drop off, german Channel, Ulong Channel and other spots and the highlights were turtles, Mantas and especially lots of sharks (greyshark, white and black tipped) Many thanks to all Neco! Special thanks to Kim!
