Palau, Yap or something near by. I have 10 days and I am wondering how I should spend them in November.
#? of days in Yap, some number of days in Palau, etc..
I've never been in that region of the world and I am looking for recommendations of places to stay (land base or live aboard), who to use, etc..

Thanks for your time
Lars

In a weeks worth of diving in Yap I saw 3 shrimp of the same species, and hardly any soft corals.

EACH DIVE in the Philippines, I will see a dozen shrimp and at least 3 different species. The Philippines is hte soft coral capital of the world.

Yap was really nice, but I would never go back now that I have tasted paradise-the Philippines.

OK, Philippines sounds promising. Any place(s) in particular?

Thanx,

Agree with the Philippines!
Puerto Galera has the most varied diving you can find in one stop.
Anilao is another great stop. Both are a two hour drive south of Manila, with Puerto Galera add a 45 min boat ride to Sabang beach!

Bohol is another great stop. From Manila a short plane ride to Bohol, or Cebu.
Cebu to Bohol you can take a fast ferry to Tagbilaran. You also have Malapascua north of Cebu city, or Moalboa west of Cerbu City

YOU CAN'T GO WRONG DIVING IN THE PHILIPPINES!!!

I am lloking at the end of November or end of December time frame.
Are those good times to visit? Is one of the two any better than the other?
By better I mean less divers in the way...

Tanx,
