Reviews about Palau Siren
Siren trip December 2016
- Would have been good to have shorter dive briefings, or have them on the skiff once conditions were observed on site.
- Was a bit dismayed that the Diver Rescue Device was a "pay extra for it" option. That sends a "safety costs you extra" message to the divers.
- Would have been great to shuffle dive groups (not great always diving with the same people all week).
