The only one of its kind in Palau, pioneer dive shop Fish ‘n Fins just introduced a new helicopter service. Officially known as Palau Helicopters Inc., Fish ‘n Fins now owns and operates a brand new Robinson R66 turbine helicopter, which allows visitors to experience the beauty of Palau‘s Rock islands from the air.
Scenic flight and photography tours include 20; 40; and 60 minute options, which offer an opportunity to explore the Rock Islands, Jellyfish Lake, the WWII battle fields of Peleliu and the world-class dive sites from a different point of view. The scene is set by pilot Martin Pacheco who has over 3300 hours of flying experience and is also an FAA certified helicopter/airplane mechanic and FAA A&P helicopter inspector. Prices for the tours range from $185 to $450 per person or from $1,150 for 30-minute private charters for up to four people.
As the only commercially-available helicopter or airplane tour in Palau, Fish ‘n Fins’ Palau Helicopters Inc. is also developing Search & Rescue and Medevac programs with the local government to provide a safer diving and boating environment.

Located in the westernmost corner of Micronesia, Palau is an archipelago of more than 586 islands with about 20,000 inhabitants and was the world’s first official Shark Sanctuary, setting the pace for many other destinations to follow suit. Consistently ranked as one of the world’s best dive destinations, Palau is the ultimate paradise for the adventurous traveler, boasting some of the most spectacular water features and beaches as well as the world famous, swim friendly Jellyfish Lake and Rock Islands, which was recently inscribed onto United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) World Heritage List. With 1,450 species of fish and 500 species of coral, some have called Palau the “8th Natural Wonder of the World”, while others have identified Palau as “One of the Seven Underwater Wonders of the World.”
