This was my second trip on the Palau Aggressor and another enjoyable one.
The trip schedule is Sunday thru Saturday night disembarking the following

What is the WWII ordinance demolition?  When we were diving from Koror in
April we were told that the reefs near Peleliu were so damaged that they
were not diving there .(damage from the 2012 typhoon). Can you give a reef
report on any dives you did near Peleliu?

WWII ordinance demolition is the intentional detonation of bombs, ammo,
etc. from the WWII battle that occurred on Peleliu. The island and reefs
are still strewn with this stuff. I encountered an unexploded 105mm
howitzer round while diving. The reefs around Peleliu are in good shape
certainly very diveable. Most day boat operators from Koror are not going
to make the trek to Peleliu for diving. You have to dive Peleliu from
either a live-aboard or stay on Peleliu to dive.
