Unique Diving in Palau:
Unique Diving Expeditions in Palau is a part of the famous Sam’s Tours diving operation in Palau. Run by Paul Collins and Richard Barnden, Unique Diving specializes in small dive excursions to see the amazing fish aggregations and spawning events.

Mike will show you video and still images that capture thousands of bumphead parrotfish, tens of thousands of red snappers spawning and much more. To see it is to believe it.
