What to expect
All dives are made from the 18-passenger dive tender, which is lowered into the water by a hydraulic cradle. This 9m (30ft) dive tender accommodates all 18 divers and a dive guide. Each diver has a tank rack and seat on the tender. All tanks are filled in place with either air or Nitrox (extra charge).
Divers board the tender at deck level then the boat is lowered into the water by a hydraulic lift. After completion of the dive, the tender cruises into the lift and returns to deck level where passengers safely disembark. Divers can rinse off with two freshwater showers on the dive deck. A dive briefing area, camera table with low-pressure air hoses, camera rinse tank, freshwater showers and photo lab are all part of the roomy dive deck. A full range of photo and video equipment is available for hire on board, as well as a variety of dive courses including Nitrox certification.
Legendary dive sites like Blue Hole, Shark City, Blue Corner, German Channel, Siaes Tunnel or Ulong Channel offer dramatic coral walls, drop-offs, and caverns with a close shark and manta ray encounter in warm tropical waters with excellent underwater visibility year-round. Most dives in Palau are drift dives, and reef hooks are used frequently in the strongest currents near the reef tops. Palau is considered a dive destination most suitable for experienced divers.
Email is available on board through the satellite system, for which there is a charge. Private calls may be made from the yacht.
The Palau Aggressor II is one of the longest established liveaboards in the fleet. She has been operating in Palau for many years and has a very knowledgeable and experienced crew.
