In Feb 2014 before going to Truk, I dove in Palau. I dove with Sam's Tours. Here are some pics from the trip:

If I was to go back I think it would need to be on a liveaboard. The rides out from Sam's Tours were long. Also, everyone goes to the same spots. With a liveaboard there is more flexibility in where you go.

Love your pics! I am headed to Palau at the end of March 2015. I believe we are diving with Fish 'N Fins and staying in Koror at PRR. I hear mixed reviews about both but I am pretty good at having fun regardless. Just got my UW gear wet for the first time in two years in Bonaire last week and will continue tuning it in Cozumel next month before the Palau trip. Owning a few different DSLRs I am inspired by the images a lowly Rebel can make when you light the scene correctly. It is all about the light, not DXO or any of that stuff. Composition, lighting, settings and hitting the shutter button at the right time are what really matter.

Thanks :)..hope you enjoy Palau. Do you have strobes? Lighting is very important under.

Yes, I have two Inon S2000 strobes on my setup. For Macro I usually use TTL and for WA I do a full dump.

Funny I submitted #3 last year to the Orange County Fair and it didn't make it past the first round.
