    Parting Shot...

    A father buys a lie detector robot that slaps people when they lie. He decides to test it out at dinner one night. The father asks his son what he did that afternoon. The son says, "I did some schoolwork." The robot slaps the son. The son says, "OK, OK. I was at a friend's house watching movies." Dad asks, "What movie did you watch?" Son says, "Toy Story." The robot slaps the son. Son says, "OK, OK, we were watching porn." Dad says, "What? At your age I didn't even know what porn was." The robot slaps the father. Mom laughs and says, "Well, he certainly is your son." The robot slaps the mother. . .

    All that's missing... is you!

    The season is moving into Summer where we expect the year's calmest conditions which means the most dive sites available in Yap.

    All dive guides, concierges, front desk staff and even our drivers are undergoing updated medical training.

    "This training is just another example of my effort aimed at having the best staff possible and ensuring that the people in daily contact with our guests are all medically trained," says Bill.

    We have regularly provided training for housekeepers, cooks, wait staff and front desk people so this current training is another example of our commitment to our staff and guests.
