Palau'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. 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 and ends Saturday morning. Transfers from the Palau airport are provided on the day of arrival and departure. All eight luxurious staterooms are air-conditioned and have individual climate controls. Each is fully carpeted and insulated for sound, equipped with queen and single berths and vanity. Storage space is generous and each room is appointed with a hot fresh-water shower and toilet. Water makers provide an abundance of fresh water. All staterooms are just a step away from the dive deck, and each room has a large window just above water level. Traveling toward the stern of the Palau Aggressor II, guests enter the large dive deck. This is the area where divers suit up and prepare their gear. Each diver has his own personal dive station complete with seat and locker. Most dives are made from the high-speed skiff. The 30-foot skiff accommodates all divers. Each diver has a tank rack and seat on the skiff. All tanks are filled in place on the skiff with either air or nitrox. Divers board the skiff at deck level then the skiff is lowered into the water by a hydraulic lift. After the dive is made, the skiff cruises into the lift and returns to deck level where guests 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, head and E-6 photo lab are all part of the roomy dive deck.
A few steps up from the dive deck on the second level is the salon, dining area and indoor/outdoor wet bar. The salon is an attractively furnished area designed for comfort and relaxation. The entertainment center features a large screen TV, VCR with all video camera capabilities, CD player and a well-stocked library of books and magazines, videos, compact discs and slides. A self-service indoor/outdoor bar is open 24 hours a day. The bar, a popular gathering place, is constructed of solid teak and has retractable windows for a fresh open air feeling. 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. A soothing hot tub is located on the open deck near 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 .
