Comments Great boat, great diving, great crew.

The boat was structured very nicely for a liveaboard. Everything easy to reach.

Diving from the skiff was easy and seemed very intuitive after a dive or two. It does keep you on a pretty tight schedule thru the week. Some liveaboards take you to a location, brief you on the location and tell you that the "pool is open". Here every dive is scheduled, briefed, and then guided by multiple DMs.

We stayed at the Palau Royal Resort a few days before the trip. I didn't realize that it was right next door to where the Aggressor would leave from - that was convenient! We rented a car which gave us a lot of flexibility to see Palau before we got on the boat. We even got a birding guide from Planet Blue (via Sam's Tours) for a one day birding experience!

We got a day room at Cliffside before our 1:30am flight. What a great deal! A place to put our luggage, take a nap & shower before the flight, and you get a pass to use the PPR facilities down the street.

The only problem with this trip is that we are now spoiled by the amazing diving in Palau. Will we want to go anywhere else now?
