Back from Palau

Holy cow! I went in February this year (Sam’s Tours) and this time (Fish-n-Fins) was just unreal! Big fish, huge schools, colorful soft corals, sea fans, beautiful walls, nice drift dive currents, and it just goes on and on...The place is a paradise with the beautiful Rock Islands and wonderful landscape scenery. The dive sites were AWESOME and the experience was just out of this world.

Here on Guam, the water temperature is usually around 84-86 degrees. Well, it was chilly 83 degrees today...We get a LOT of Japanese tourists here and they usually go diving. I would venture to say that ALL of them wear wetsuits. I wear swim trunks and a T-shirt. Am I missing out on anything? Is it the bouyancy or the protection from jellyfish, coral, and eels biting you? Can someone shed some light on this for me? Thanks!...
