Experience the best reefs in Palau onboard the luxurious Palau Aggressor II. Palau Aggressor II offers regular 7 night excursions from Koror every Sunday year round and explores the legendary outer reefs south-east of Koror and around Peleliu Island.
Palau Aggressor II, built in the US in 1994, is a 32m (106ft) 18-passenger catamaran providing comfort, safety and stability. She is 9m (30ft) wide, with an average cruising speed of 21 knots and a shallow draft. Power outlets are 110V. The comfortable salon is attractively furnished, featuring a well-stocked library and entertainment centre with large screen TV and DVD/CD player with all video camera capabilities.
A self-service indoor/outdoor bar is open 24 hours a day. Three large dining tables are also part of this huge room. Breakfast and dinner are eaten indoors; however, lunch is often enjoyed alfresco at the bar. The third level features a "moon deck," a 30-foot wide shaded deck. Here guests may relax on a chaise lounge or nap in a hammock.
There are 8 Deluxe staterooms with queen size bed plus upper single bunk, and 1 smaller twin share cabin, all located on the main deck. All staterooms feature ensuite bathrooms with hair dryers and large picture windows. They are individually climate-controlled, fully carpeted, with generous storage space and insulated for sound. Each cabin has a TV/DVD set-up.
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.
Legendary dive sites like Blue Hole, Shark City, Blue Corner, German Channel, Siaes Tunnel or Ulong Channel offer dramatic coral walls, drop offs and caverns with close shark and manta ray encounters in warm tropical waters with excellent underwater visibility year-round. Most dives in Palau are drift dives, and reef hooks are used frequently in the strongest currents near the reef tops; therefore, Palau is a dive destination most suitable for experienced divers.
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.
The Palau Aggressor II is one of the longest established liveaboards in the fleet. She is operating in Palau for many years and has a very knowledgeable crew.
