Palau – The Jewel of Micronesia: December 2-14, 2019


Palau – Palau Royal Resort

This premier dive adventure combines everything you hope for in one of the greatest dive destinations in the world!

World-class diving with stunning marine biodiversity…

Palau offers world-class diving, with something for divers and snorkelers at all levels. With over 1,500 species of fish and 700 species of coral, the biodiversity here is enormous, and it’s all carefully protected by the Koror State Rangers.

Welcome to Fish ‘n Fins

Welcome to the Fish ‘n Fins website, home to Palau’s leading dive and tour center. Established in 1972, we are the true pioneer dive operation in Palau. Fish ‘n Fins Dive center along with the Ocean Hunter fleet of liveaboards is owned and run by Navot & Tova Bornovski. We have created our website so it can guide and answer many of your questions about diving and visiting Palau with Fish ‘n Fins.

Land Tours

There is more to Palau than just diving! If you’ve got a day to fill before flying home, or just fancy a day out of the water, we can offer guided kayak excursions through the stunning Rock Islands, land tours to the sights and history of the ‘Big Island’, Babeldaob, or fishing trips to catch the denizens of the deep.

Let us lead you on a personalized land tour. In one of our comfortable mini-buses, we can take you up the rocky dirt roads of Babeldaob Island (the Big Island) to see the sprawling, panoramic view on top of Palau’s highest peak. Hike across the freshwater river, stopping to bathe in the mini-waterfalls and mountain pools along the stream, until you reach the big 80-foot drop waterfalls, and rejoice in that clear water. Head to the stone monoliths of Palau’s old civilisations. You can visit WWII tanks, relics and monuments, and even include stops around town at museums and the storyboard shops. The price includes lunch and cold drinks of water and tea.
