Rock Islands Aggressor (formerly known as Tropic Dancer) offers mostly 7 night cruises with a few special 10, 12 and 14 night cruises scheduled throughout the year. The vessel sleeps 18 passengers in 9 comfortable double/twin staterooms.

This luxurious vessel accommodates 18 guests in 8 deluxe stateroom cabins and one standard double stateroom cabin with the ultimate in comfort and space. All cabins are air-conditioned, and the ensuite bathrooms are equipped with hairdryers. Linens are changed mid-week and fresh towels are placed in each stateroom daily as needed.

Features
Rock Islands Aggressor is 32m (105 ft) long and 6m (28 ft) wide, powered by twin caterpillar 3412 cat diesel engines, generating 1000 H.P. each (10 knots) and has 110-208 volt power on board. There are 3 spacious decks, including a partially covered sun deck with chaise lounges and a hot tub. The main saloon features an entertainment centre with TV, CD's, DVD's and a comprehensive library.

Breakfast is cooked to order; buffet lunch and an elegant meal at dinner with tableside service are served daily in addition to fresh mid-morning and mid-afternoon snacks. Beverages (alcoholic and non-alcoholic) are complimentary while onboard.
Diving service
All dives are made from the 18-passenger dive skiff, which is lowered into the water by a hydraulic cradle. This 9m (30ft) dive tender accommodates all 18 divers and a dive guide. Each diver has a tank rack and seat on the tender. All tanks are filled in place with either air or Nitrox (extra charge).

Divers board the tender at deck level then the boat is lowered into the water by a hydraulic lift. After completion of the dive, the tender cruises into the lift and returns to deck level where passengers safely disembark. Divers can rinse off with two freshwater showers on the dive deck. A dive briefing area, camera table with low-pressure air hoses, camera rinse tank, freshwater showers and photo lab are all part of the roomy dive deck. A full range of photo and video equipment is available for hire on board, as well as a variety of dive courses including Nitrox certification.
Dive area
From warm water lagoons to dramatic drop-offs, the Palau archipelago that surrounds and protects the famed mushroom-shaped Rock Islands is known as one of the top dive destinations in the world. Palau is ideally suited for the more adventurous diver.

You can expect mostly wall and drift diving with visibility ranging from 30m (90ft) in excess of 60m (200ft), depending on existing conditions. Rock Islands Aggressor explores spectacular walls along the barrier reef, including such favourites as Blue Corner, Ngemelis Drop-Off and many other sensational dive sites yet to be charted. Get ready to enjoy the thrill of drift diving with schooling sharks, the beauty of healthy hard and soft corals, the tranquillity of Jellyfish Lake, historic WWII wrecks and the vibrant fish life. Palau is one of the few destinations where sharks and manta rays are almost guaranteed to be seen up close.
Staying Connected
Email is available on board through the satellite system. There is a charge for incoming and outgoing email. Private calls may be made from the yacht.

We think...
Rock Islands Aggressor adds another luxury liveaboard to Micronesia and brings the well-known excellent standards of service and onboard amenities of the Aggressor Fleet to these waters.
