Our third trip aboard the Palau Aggressor II in the last four years.  Capt
Mike and his crew easily set the example for liveaboards in the Pacific. 
Staff members are professional, dedicated, and keep customer service
foremost.  Safety is an obvious priority as divers are provided with
EPIRBs, alerts and sausages if needed.  Rooms are spacious with ample
storage space and are well maintained throughout the week. Don't plan on
losing weight during the week as food is plentiful and tasty.  Snacks are
served following morning and afternoon dives along with local fruits. A
unique feature of the boat is the skiff used as the platform for all
diving.  It is housed on a hydraulic lift that enables divers to enter and
leave it from the dive deck and gear is maintained by the crew on the skiff
during the entire week.  Effortless diving sure to spoil the most hardened
diver.  The Aggressor visits a variety of sites and modifies the schedule
to accommodate requests for specific sites and types of dives.  The local
knowledge and experiences of the divemasters ensures that unique fish and
coral are located and identified.  Due to the extended travel time from the
US, recommend that consideration be given to arriving a day early or making
a return trip stop in Hawaii.
