About Fish'n Fins
The story of Fish’n Fins is the tale of a young couple, Navot, a Naval Architect & Mechanical Engineer and Tova, an Executive Chef with dedication to fine foods, both highly experienced divers, who sailed the seas around the world for over four and a half years in the nineteen eighties. Fascinated by nature and culture, Navot and Tova fell in love with Palau and its people and decided to return to these pristine islands after their world trip.
Both returned in 1993 aboard their newly remodeled luxurious liveaboard Ocean Hunter.
Ever since then Navot, Tova, their family and Ocean Hunter Liveaboard have had a happy home in Palau. In 1998 Navot & Tova took over the existing dive shop Fish’n Fins and have developed the shop to a 5 Star, 21st century dive center for international divers and explorers alike.
Tova and Navot are very active members of the Palauan community - over the years they have contributed their expertise and services to numerous projects in Palau, including research expeditions, articles and movies (Skin Diver, National Geographic, Discovery Channel, BBC), and conservation efforts.
They founded the Micronesian Shark Foundation which, in conjunction with an annual Shark Week Festival at Fish ‘n Fins, is dedicated to collecting research data and raising awareness to protect sharks throughout Micronesia. In 2000, Navot led a crew of technical divers in the discovery of the USS Perry, the only US shipwreck in Palau, continuing Fish ‘n Fins tradition of pioneering the waters of Palau.
