Phenomenal staff and itinerary

The best diving experience I've had. Captain Ike and his crew were exceptional. The chef had a really good cuisine and excellent variety. We went in June and the weather was a bit rainy, but we had fun because the rain didn't matter under water. I would definitely go again with this crew and on this trip because we didn't get to go to some of the sites in Pelilu and had to repeat some of the same sites.

This was the best I ever had so far! ...and I have done a lot of diving.

The dives sites were not only crawling with critters (mantas, sharks, Napoleons, colorful reef fish, turtles,..) there were also chosen very wisely in terms of diversity (reefs, wrecks, walls, caves, channels, lakes,..). The guides were very experienced and safe to dive with - without missing out on the fun part ;-) The crew in general was extremely professional, friendly, welcoming and mindful of any extra wishes we had (got a cheese platter for my B-day on board). A big thanks to Ronnie (excellent food!!), Jay, Andy, Editha, Ripon, Joe and Jim!! You made our stay very special. The boat itself is very functional. All the equipment tays safely on the Zodiac which gets hydraulically lifted to and from the water. Rooms are on one level, spacious, clean, modern and very well serviced all the time (thanks, Editha!!). On a scale of 1 to 10 (with 10 being the best) I give this a rating of 9.9! (0.1 more the go, folks, but you are already half-way there ;-)

This was our first livaboard and it was amazing. The boat is very comfortable. The diving set up is amazing. Staff goes above and beyond to make you comfortable. Drinks are waiting for you after every dive. Hot chocolate for the night dives. The food is amazing and diving in Palau is fantastic. I have nothing bad to say about this trip.

Epicurean culinary fine dining intertwined with prolific pelagic action subsurface

This was my second trip on the Palau Aggressor II. The on board services (especially the epicurean dining) coupled with unlimited complimentary beer and wine taunted the most experienced divers. 30 C (89F) waters, hard running currents on at least one dive a day (three days there were 5 dives a day) and prolific pelagic action with dive site diversity rounded out a week in Paradise. Most of the crew have a decade of experience and know EVERYTHING. Fred Hamblen (PADI MSDT)

1st time liveaboard: surpassed all expectations!

i was diving the max 4-5 times a day but felt refreshed and ready for each dive only because the staff provided amazing service with immediate access to refreshments and wonderful meals. the yacht had comfortable living quarters to recover in our own staterooms but also with the sundeck lounge chairs and hammocks. the staff were able accommodate individual needs, from having beers for me ready after the last dive of eac day, to providing nice photos from our trip without extra cost.

The only way to dive Palau!

The diving was fantastic. The dive guides were very helpful. I had issues with some of my personal scuba equipment and they helped fix it right away. Safety is a priority with these folks. The food was very good for a relatively small liveaboard and plentiful. While the cabins were a bit dated, they were clean and comfortable. Loved the trip. It was also great to meet guest/divers from all over the world and share our experiences. I would definitely do another liveaboard.

Over Rated, Over Hyped, and Over Priced

I've been diving in southeast Asia for 20 yrs and have been on 7 live aboard diving trips in Thailand, Indonesia & The Philippines, along with 3 other divers in our group and we all agree this trip ranks 6th. Although I would rank the boat, food (outstanding) and crew (excellent but, there was not enough dive guides) very high the most important aspect is the Diving Experience which I would rate very low and under whelming relative to hype I read about Palau diving. There were 15 divers in our group with only 1 dive guide and 1 photographer. With only 1 skiff we all dived at the same time. This was by far the largest group I have ever experienced on a live aboard all diving together which was very crowded and we did not get much direction from the dive guides. In addition, we had divers of different degrees of experience and age some of which required personal attention. There were perhaps 3 marque dives but, most of them were average. In addition, we spent 2.5 dives in the port where we boarded the boat doing dives that were easily reachable by the port or shore dive shops which defeats the purpose of paying a premium price for a live aboard I assumed would take us to dive sights not easily accessible by shore. The evening before our last full day the boat returned to port where it refueled and restocked for the next trip while the skiff took us to dive sights near the port. I was very disappointed with the diving experience which was the most important part of the trip. I must note that although the crew was small they were very good. The boat safety policy & procedures, dive briefs, and activities were well done and I have to emphasize again the food was amazing.

Amazing Palau by professional liveaboard.

Palau offers superb diving. Among the beautiful corals during our trip in March we met Mantas, Leopard Shark, many reef sharks. The boat is comfort and in good condition. A bit oldstyle cabins with wash basin near the beds, all with large window and on main deck. Dive deck is spacious and all equipment is on skiff, which loaded and unloaded by hydraulic elevator - super convenient! Food is lovely, chief Ronnie is fantastic cook. The only my wish is to have more fish and seafood dishes. Beer and wine was included, but you dont have much time to drink when dive 4-5 times per day :)

High end diving in challenging weather

The boat is really perfectly tailored to liveaboard diving. Great job! Comfortable, detail oriented service and all gear/ installations work well. It was nice to anchor/ moore in calm waters and yet get to the strong current dive sites. 8 feet waves did not scare the crew so we some challenging fun out there. I was surprised the reefs were not as versatile and healthy as in Indonesia, maybe the grey weather took too much of the color though.

Excellent service and great memory with Palau Aggressor

All the crews, including Captain Scott, Ernan, Hector, Joe, Editha as well as Chef Shea, provided the great services and food for us during the memorable dream. Besides, I'm really impressed with the highly sysmatic management of Palau Aggressor, which ran the diving trip pretty smoothly. I also enjoyed with the pure and lovely islands and ocean friends in Palau. If you still have no idea which liveaboard in Palau you want to experience, choose Palau Aggressor and you won't regret.

Fantatstic

The diving is fantastic. I did not spot a single piece of trash underwater (I usually dive in Asia and there trash is quite common unfortunately). The crew was working super hard to make the trip an enjoyable experience and even though we were not so lucky with the weather (it was pouring down for half of the trip) the trip was a very pleasant experience. A word concerning the diving. Due to Palau regulations you are not allowed to dive in buddy teams. Therefore the whole boat goes diving together and it gets super crowded underwater (we were 15 divers). This was a bit unexpected but on the other hand most of the dive sites don't really allow to split up the groups as there is the ONE point of interest. To compensate for that the crew made a great effort in scheduling or dive sites and times in such a way that we would be the only group on that particular site, i.e. avoiding the divers on the day boats. Overall a fantastic experience.

A fantastic trip with a professional and friendly crew (and great food!), a nice boat and of course awesome dives with lots of sharks and mantas

Blue corner and blue holes, orange beach and the dives around Peleliu. German channel was nice but I was surprised to see so many divers and the conditions to spot mantas were maybe not quite as good as in Komodo where I dived last summer. Great dives though, the only little disappointment was that the jellyfishes have apparently taken a big hit with El Nino and almost vanished from the lake; let's hope that they will recover and come back quickly!
