UW Photo Comments nice camera table, thou it could use more overhead lighting. Palau is by far the best photo ops I have ever seen. I did all 25 dives and came home with 1400+ digital photos. My only complaint was when I witnessed a dozen or so sharks attack a school of surgeon fish that it happened so fast that I could not get any pictures. Awesome

Comments The Palau Aggressor was great. Very high quality food and a good variety and choices from breakfast to midnight snack. The bar had only beer and wine, but was well stocked with it. The crew was great, Captain Mike and Amanda treated us great and made every effort to accomdate. I was group leader with 11 other divers and I heard no complaints (made my job really easy). The diving was beyond description, sharks everywhere, I witnessed sharks attack a school of surgeon fish (AWESOME and Then some)The wall dives were loaded with life (It makes Bloody Bay Wall in the Caymans appear dead).The night dives had cuttlefish, lionfish, eels, and lots of feeding coral. We did a dive on a WW II Japanese freighter, the gas masks still in place where they fell. U-long channel was like a ride at Disneyland with something different on every turn. The Aggressor boat and crew was very accomdating, I only wish that I had booked 2 weeks instead of one. I will return soon to dive again.
