Comments This was 10 day trip on the Palau Aggressor II. We battled bad weather (two typhoons!) the entire trip, only saw the sun on a couple of days. As a result the seas were pretty rough, visibility reduced, and we did not see as many large pelagics as I anticipated. However, this was NOT at all the fault of the crew. The crew even said this was the first time they had seen the weather do that for an entire trip.

The boat was nice and spacious (more so than other Aggressor boats I have been on). There was plenty of room on the dive deck and the skiff. Food was good and plentiful. The dive crew was knowledgeable and did a great job handling everything with the rough seas.

Despite the weather, Captain Marc got us to all of the locations we were supposed to dive.... Blue Corner, German Channel, Peleliu, Ulong... and we did have some really nice dives despite the weather although not as much activity as they typically see.

I met some really nice folks on this trip and will definitely plan another trip to Palau when there are no possibility of typhoons!
