We have a large air-conditioned shop where you can find everything from a full range of dive gear to gifts for those at home, such as postcards, books, and, of course, Neco Marine Palau souvenir t-shirts and hats.
Behind the scenes, our modern compressor and custom Nitrox membrane system (Bauer et Midwest Mac 20b nitrox) provides you with safe, clean air and all the free Nitrox you can use.
Our standard diving cylinders are aluminium AL80s (80 cubic feet or roughly 11L), but we also have a few AL100s (100 cubic feet, roughly 13L) for heavier breathers – our tanks are DIN tanks with removable inserts (you do not need to bring an adapter if your regulator is DIN), and we have 2, 3 and 4 pounds (roughly 1, 1.5 and 2 kilo) weights.
And with our ample gear storage and drying space, you can simply leave your dive gear on the boat, and we’ll take care of it for you between dive days. In addition, if you don't have your own gear, we offer equipment rental options, including Aqualung regulators and BCDs, fins and some wetsuits (which are unnecessary for most, since the water is a cosy 28°C et 29°C (84°F) year round…
Finally, we’re the proud owners of the best scuba training pool in Palau. It was designed and purpose built with dive training in mind, ideal for a course or a refresher dive. And just behind the pool you’ll find changing rooms with showers.
Right next door to the shop is the popular Drop Off Bar and Grill. Drop Off is the place to go to relax, grab a cold drink and have the freshest fish on the island. The Bar’s excellent staff is always happy to accommodate you and you are always welcome to enjoy our FREE WIFI, and live music on weekends. See our reviews on TripAdvisor for more info, photos and reviews.
