We had a great time with Francis and Joe at Palau Escape. We did snorkeling, diving and some land tours and found them very helpful and extremely knowledgeable about Palau above and below the sea. Great fun and very personal and professional.

Joe does a fantastic job of creating the perfect adventure for you, and with the rest of his staff being some of the most knowledgeable crew on the island (who helped create the foundation of the tourism attractions in Palau) it’s no surprise he can handle anything you want to include in your adventure. My wife and I tried some of the other tour companies but kept getting stuck in huge groups that collided with other huge groups at the attractions, after one day with Palau Escape we cancelled our plans with all other (I’ll leave them unamed here to be professional) big groups and enjoyed a private trip that our skillful guide made just for us! Thanks Joe and Palau Escape!

Palau Escape is one of Palau's smaller diving and snorkelling operations, which is why we chose it, and we were very happy with our choice. Francis is a genuine Micronesian diving legend (as well as a member of the Scuba Diving Hall of Fame), Joe is an enthusiastic, knowledgeable and considerate guide and Joan runs everything behind the scenes perfectly. They make for an outstanding team and we had a terrific two weeks diving with them. They regularly managed to put us on world-class sites like Blue Corner and Turtle Cove at just the right time, in ideal conditions and when nobody else was around. That's just what divers want! We also joined a snorkelling tour they ran for a US group and were highly impressed again by the quality of the service, their attention to detail and how much the snorkellers loved their outing to Jellyfish Lake, Soft Coral Arch, a shallow shipwreck and couple of other sites - (outstanding value for a half-day tour, we thought!)
