Comments THE BAD: The Palau Pacific resort was over priced and under serviced. They lost our reservations and then moved us to smoking twin rooms until we complained and they miraculously found our reservations. THE GOOD: The Aggressor dive operation was first class, they were knowledeable, competent and fun. The visibility was slightly less than expected but the sharks,grey reef, black tip, silver tip and white tip, were plentiful. A giant hammerhead was spotted deep by some. The diversity of the environment was incredible. Whale sharks are very rare in Palau, the second captain diving in the waters for 25+ years had never seen one. We saw a baby. At about 15' long it came up from deep, swam with us for 20 minutes and then moved off. This Whale Shark had been captured, and had a rope around the tail encrusted with barnacles. This was a heartbreaker, and will probably kill it, but what a magnificent creature. The diving was structured but the staff was not obtrusive. A great destination and experience.
