Fantastic two week trip on the Aggressor with only 9 divers on board. 
Stayed at the Cliffside Hotel on the travel agents advice, a bit dated and
far out of town, not on the water. I think the Sea Passion is a nicer
hotel, has a snorkeling area - would choose that next time.  Long travel
time getting there, DEN-SFO-HNL-Guam-Palau,- no problems though.  Stopover
in Yap with security check where half the plane has to get off while they
inspect the seats, get a seat on the right side if you can since both times
the left side had to get off while we just had to switch sides for
inspection.  Hotel had airport pickup, arrived in middle of the night, had
to wait for later passengers.  Arrived day before, left night of final day
at 1:45 am.  Took cab to town to visit museum and to shop at the jail for a
story board- well worth it if you want a unique souvenir of the trip! 
Currency is US dollar, English language and US postal service used here. 
Next door to airport is a luxury waiting lounge with Wifi, recliners, bar
and snacks.  Well worth $15 if you have a few hours to wait for flight
after checking bags, just walk over from terminal, on the left as you walk

Two weeks on the boat flew by- can't imagine doing only one!  Crew was
fantastic, Captain Drew is the best, photo pro Johnny and DM's Ike, Jason
and Marc were all great.  Nice layout on the boat, hydraulic skiff lift is
wonderful.  We did an exploratory trip out to Velasco Reef and had some
great dives, felt like pioneers- got to see a whale shark ascending on one!
 Soft and hard coral was incredible, diverse and healthy.  Abundant
fish,turtles, anenomes and clownfish, giant clams, nudibranchs.  Really
felt like we got to see the best of the area and revisited several favorite
sites including Blue Corner several times.  Being the first divers at Blue
Corner in the mornings is fantastic! On one afternoon at Blue Corner we
literally got overrun by a Chinese dive group, chaotic for a few minutes
but since they all were wearing bandanas we got sorted out and moved away
from them, annoying lack of manners.  Generally cloudy and rainy weather-
reef would have been more beautiful with more sunlight, but still great. 
Some issues with visibility due to run off at some sites.  Several firsts
for me, giant cuttlefish posing for photos may have been the best, manta
cleaning station, several nudibranchs I've never seen, GIANT giant clams,
rare fish....hard to pick.  Jellyfish Lake was fun, Rock Island tour and
Peleliu Island all worth seeing. Snorkeled over to the Survivor beach and
explored one afternoon-I'm a fan. Highly recommend this trip- do 2 weeks if
you can.  Two weeks of 4+ dives a day was exhausting but excellent.  All
dives from skiff, dive time of 60 minutes.
