Brotherdive 2020 Palau update !!

Unfortunately our brotherdive 2020 ended in a complete disappointment due to the Corona virus travel restrictions.

We left Holland on the 16th on March toward Dubai, from Dubai we flew towards Manila in the Philippines we’re we arrived on the 18th.
The last part of this trip was the flight from Manila towards Koror (Palau), with United airlines.
At the check-in we were told that they could fly us to Koror (Palau), however our planned return trip on the 27th from Koror back to Manila was not possible due to a total shutdown of all airport activities (including International flights) on Manila as from the 20th of March.

One hour before our check-in the Philippine government announced that from the 20th of March until (at least) the 13th of April the complete Luzon Island would be closed for all airport activities.

For that reason we had to return to Holland.

Hopefully we will be able to visit Palau in the near future...

Brotherdive 2020: Back to Palau !!

Yes indeed, we're going back to Palau!

Ever since our first brotherdive visit in 2015 we kept thinking of Palau.
There are so many beautiful dive sites that we were not able to dive during our last visit,
that we both had the feeling that we were not ‘finished’ diving in Palau.

So, in March we’ll be visiting Palau again.

November 2016:

It's a fact; our next Brotherdive 2017 goes to Radja Ampat (West papua - Indonesia).

After our last 'real' Brother dive to Mexico, we figured out that our interests still lie more in Asia than in the Caribbean. This is mainly due to the underwater diversity and entourage.
So we are looking forward to travel to 'Kri' island in Radja Ampat in March 2017!

And as you are accustomed to, we will surely come back with lots of photo and video materials which of course we will share with you.
