Palau is a diver's paradise offering a tremendous variety of dives including World War II wrecks, schooling sharks at 'Blue Corner', and the stunning coral formations that make up the 'Blue Holes'.

At the centre of the Micronesian Archipelago, half way between Guam and the Philippines, lies the tiny island nation of Palau, a string of 340 or so islands stretching across 325 miles of ocean and surrounded by a considerable barrier reef. Just eight of these islands are inhabited, the largest being Babeldaob.

Palau is situated just a few degrees north of the Equator, outside the typhoon belt, and so offers superb diving all year round, with water temperatures averaging 28C and with generally excellent visibility. With its huge barrier reef, incredible rock islands, unique marine lakes and sheer drop offs, Palau has the natural beauty and variety to excite any visitor.

Ocean Hunter III is the latest boat to join the Fish 'n Fins operation in Palau, a very professional organisation who have been running diving holidays for more than 25 years.

She is a well designed vessel dedicated to diving and ideal for the waters of Palau and her special trips to Yap. Her friendly and helpful crew are very experienced and have a broad knowledge of the best diving in the area.

Ocean Hunter operates a schedule of seven and ten day departures from January through to September, departing from Koror, the capital of Palau.
