Blue Marlin was established as a dive shop on Malakal Bay in 1987. Its founder, Dr. Minoru Ueki, is a former Palau minister. Since our inception, we have collaborated with the Belau Tourism Association (Palau’s tourism association) and have strived to show Palau’s majestic underwater world to everyone. We want visitors to see for themselves that Palau is the top spot for diving.
To expand our business and enhance our services, we moved our operation into the 5-star Palau Royal Resort in the Malakal area in 2005. We have received several awards from tourism agencies and dive magazines, including the Best Diving Service Award. And in 2017, we celebrated our 30th consecutive year in business with no serious accidents.
Since our founding, we have been developing new dive sites and now have more than fifteen of these, not only in the south west but also in the north and east.
We are located at the 5-star Palau Royal Resort. The boat pier is right in front of our shop. Facilities include a spacious logging area and clean, convenient spaces for rinsing equipment or taking a hot shower.
