Macstyl Sasao

From a young age, Macstyl proved to be quite the outdoor enthusiast in his homeland of Palau. At six years old, he was climbing coconut trees and mastering the art of capturing land and coconut crabs (local delicacies in Palau). He attended school in the Pacific Northwest, where he was introduced to kayaking and fishing for salmon, and later returned to Palau to pursue his newfound passions as a sustainable fisherman for his village. Macstyl soon became an underwater photographer, enjoys tracking dugongs, whales, and dolphins with his aerial camera, and hopes to use his data and imagery to help protect Palau's fragile environment and precious resources.

Mac was almost the best part of the trip. He is knowledgable on the subjects of local geology, flora, and fauna, and most proficient in representing and explaining the culture and traditions of the people of Palau. Patient, kind and considerate, he made the trip enjoyable for each of us with our differing needs and enthusiasms. Really an excellent guide.
