Comments This was an amazing trip. The coral is lush and beautiful, and the marine life is abundant and healthy. While the pace is fast, we loved spending so much time diving. The crew is very professional and helpful.

This time of year is not the best time to visit Palau, and we did not always have good weather. It rained a lot. We were told January-March is the time to come.

There were some minor frustrations on the trip. 2 of the passengers claimed a need to wear gloves while diving. It became apparent that the reason they like gloves is that they often haul themselves across the reef, coral head by coral head. The dive masters did the best they could, but it was difficult to manage these two.

The food and service were remarkable on this trip. Heated, plush towels after every dive, and a tray of mugs of hot chocolate after a cold and rainy skiff ride. The chef is very skilled, and everything was top notch. Fortunately, there was so much diving that it seemed to offset the meals, desserts and wine.

UW Photo Comments Aggressor does a great job for UWP. There is a large, designated table for cameras with a charging area right underneath. The opportunities for photos are endless, and the dive masters assist with finding great subjects. On this trip, ghost pipefish, pipefish, pygmy seahorses, juvenile batfish, nudibranchs, orangutan crabs, etc.
