Palau Aggressor


Palau Aggressor (Aggressor Fleet)

The Palau Aggressor is a very comfortable 33-metre catamaran that carries a maximum of 18 passengers in nine twin-berth staterooms. Each Deluxe Stateroom has one double bed and one single bed, private head and shower, air-conditioning with individual climate controls and a large window. Six crew members make sure that your diving holiday runs smoothly. Between dives guests can relax on the sundeck (either in or out of the shade) or try the amazing hot tub! The salon has an excellent collection of books, videos and music to enjoy.

The dive deck has racks for hanging dive suits. A large three-tiered camera table has plenty of space for camera assembly or preparation and separate rinse tanks are kept for cameras and videos. The photography department provides rental cameras and accessories as well as the services of the photo pro if you require a model or expert advice. A range of PADI and NAUI speciality courses are offered including Nitrox and Rebreather training and facilities. A full range of diving equipment is available for rental by pre-arrangement.

Because of the currents in Palau, many of the dives are done as drifts and for this the amazing Palau Aggressor ‘II-and-a-half’ is deployed. This 10-metre dynamo of a boat can cruise at 50 knots! Ladders on either side assist with water exits and a canopy keeps divers well-shaded in the tropical Micronesian sun. Divers board this little boat on the dive deck, where she stays between dives attached to a hydraulic crane, and are then lowered into the water. After each dive she is raised once more to the dive deck and divers merely step off ‘II-and-a-half’ and onto 'II’. Divers’ gear is loaded on to ‘II-and-a-half’ at the beginning of the cruise and stays there for the duration of the trip!

For after the dive there is a freshwater shower and clean towels awaiting, as well as the chef’s freshly prepared snacks to appease the after-dive hunger pangs! Delicious barbecues, American and local dishes are served; breads, biscuits and baked snacks come strait from the oven. Most meals are served buffet-style.
