The Palau Aggressor II will take you on an eight-day and seven-night cruise into Palau, located at the westernmost edge of Micronesia. Palau is surrounded by warm, tropical water with spectacular reefs, walls, and wrecks, making it a diver’s paradise. Palau's mushroom-shaped rock islands offer a variety of exciting dives: WWII wrecks, channels with loads of sharks, 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, 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 Palau Aggressor II crew encounters massive bait balls of scad, in and around Ulong and German Channel and on the reefs of Blue Corner and Siaes Corner. This means marine life is abundant. Match this with the service and you will have a trip to remember!
