Aggressor Palau is a professional operation, great crew, food, nice cabins.
Diving was from a 30 ft boat hoisted up onto the back of the liveaboard.
Only drawback to the launch was that we spent a lot of time in it going to
and from the liveaboard which was moored in a protected cove. Older divers
like myself got a little tired because launch time to and from meant there
wasn't as much down time to rest between dives. On the other hand the
launch allowed almost exclusively drift dives. 

We had a wild ride at Peleliu Corner. I thought that the divemasters should
have predicted the extremely fast current that swept us up and over the
corner and down a deep downdraft on the far end. We ended up spread over a
quarter mile area. The boat provided us all with long safety sausages and
on that dive they were essential in the large swells that we surfaced

Aside from this one lapse, I would recommend Palau Aggressor as a first
class operation and thought that diving in Palau was superb. I also
recommend spending time on the island to get a feeling for the culture. We
arrived a day early and did limited sightseeing. The Palau Museum is well
worth visiting.
