Palau Aggressor II (Palau, South Pacific Itinerary: 7 nights)
 

Overview

Palau is home to over 1,500 fish species and 700 species of coral and sea anemone. See yourself there turning around from the wall to look out at the blue where sharks galore patrol back and forth, followed by rays and large pelagics. Picture the marine life scuttling around in every crevice and hole while clouds of small vibrant reef fish cascade down the steep reef. Imagine diving on sheer walls dropping down into the abyss, yet festooned in soft corals and sea fans. That's Palau!

Day 1 Sunday: Pre-arranged pick up from Palau hotels 4:00 – 5:00 pm for transfer to the Palau Aggressor II for boarding. Guests may board beginning at 4:00 pm. 
Day 2-7 Monday - Saturday: Diving begins Monday morning until Saturday noon. Cocktail party at 6:00 pm with dinner ashore. 
Day 8 Sunday: Check out is at 8:00 am. The crew will assist organizing transportation to either the 
airport or a local hotel if you are extending your stay. 




Itinerary

Diving PalauPalau's mushroom-shaped rock islands offer a variety of exciting dives: WWII wrecks, shark-infested channels, blue holes, a freshwater lake with stingless jellyfish and even a few caves. There are also sheer walls covered in lush soft corals and huge anemones. Beginner divers may find Palau's strong currents challenging.

Palau is a year round destination with something for every season.  While German Channel has many resident Manta Rays, during the mating season, December through March, Dancer guests may see as many as 20 – 30 rays!  February and March offer large schools of Moorish Idols, Unicorn Fish and several species of Butterfly Fish.  All year round, the Tropic Dancer crew encounters massive bait balls of scad in and around Ulong and German Channel and on the reefs of Blue Corner and Siaes Corner.

All dives are made from the 18-passenger dive skiff, which is lowered into the water by a hydraulic cradle. Seven-day charters are Sunday to Sunday with five days and one-half days of diving. Diving begins Monday morning and ends Saturday before lunch when the Dancer returns to port. Monday through Friday there are four dives offered each day and a night dive on three evenings.  Saturday a half-day of diving is offered.
