Long trip to Palau (longer trip home!).  Good accomodations at the Sea
Passion for first three days - room was large, large balcony, AC worked
well, shower sucked though - either hot or cold water it seemed (had to
dance around a bit), and water pressure poor.  Breakfast included, and more
than adequate.  First day with Sam's Tours - did full day kayaking
excursion - terrific (was good that it was rainy and overcast, otherwise
would have been very hot).  Palau Aggressor, was great boat (although
didn't quite like the bunk bed set-up, as opposed to having twin beds like
other liveaboards).  AC in room was OK, but a bit warm sometimes, and bed
mattress a bit thin.  Food was terrific (chef trained at the CIA in NY)!!! 
Included wine really pretty poor (maybe not stored well?) - usually a red
wine drinker, but switched to beer for the trip (local beer, Red Rooster,
was pretty good).

Diving - lots of wall dives, beautiful coral, lots of tropicals.  Sharks at
Blue Corner and Ulong Channel - not a lot (not like Galapagos), but crusing
by were Greys, Black Tips, and White Tips.  Large and curious Napolean
Wrasse were always fun.  Only one Manta (German Channel - where visibility
and life was a bit disappointing). Turtle Cove was one of the favorites -
great drop through a chimney down to 70 feet then cruise along the wall.  

Sometimes the group was too crowded together (instead of splitting up into
separately-led divermaster groups) - had to deliberately keep away from the
crowd (one, especially was intent on destroying reefs, others more
interested in taking pictures, than being polite and aware of other

Divermasters were great, all staff were terrific - the crew always pitched
in whenever necessary - taking your plates, serving beer or food, assisting
with gear/cameras, etc.  Been on four liveaboards, and the crew was the
most outstanding on this one.
