The Palau Aggressor II is a 32m aluminium-hulled catamaran with a 10m wide beam meaning there is always plenty of comfort, safety and stability on board. Week-long Palau liveaboard cruises operate from Sunday to Sunday. Palau has been an Aggressor destination since 1990 meaning you are diving with experienced people who know the destination inside out.
You can tour around the best dive sites of Micronesia as well as the famous Jellyfish Lake from this catamaran that promises comfort and safety. The Palau Aggressor also strives to be entertaining and informative with nightly presentations and movies.
Comfortable air conditioned accommodation for 18 guests include 9 spacious staterooms with ensuite bathrooms. Your linens are changed mid-week and fresh towels are placed in each stateroom as needed.
The Palau Aggressor II has a spacious lounge, large sun deck with shading, chaise longues and deck chairs, bar, grill, hot tub and a complete photo/video center. Email is available through the satellite system. Local beer and wine are free of charge during the cruise. Breakfast (cooked to order), buffet lunch and a chef-prepared meal at dinner with waiter service are served, as well as snacks during the day.
Dive experience: When our guests compete their Cruise Application they affirm that they are fit to dive in Palau, including physical fitness, dive skills, and dive experience. The diver themselves is the best person to judge that and to use criteria such as certification level or number of dives would not be appropriate.
Cruise price per person includes: Cabin accommodation with air-conditioning, breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks, water, soft drinks and hot drinks, local wine and beer, dives (as detailed in the cruises above), experienced English-speaking divemaster(s) (3-5 divers per 1 DM), tanks, weights and weightbelts, all taxes.
Cruise price per person excludes (mandatory, unless customer provides own): Scuba equipment 7N - US$ 175, 10N - US$ 260, dive computer, marine park fees (per person): US$ 240. Unless otherwise stated, all the listed items need to be paid on arrival (cash or credit card).
Optional extras: Alcoholic drinks (apart from as included above - duty is very high so it is recommended you bring your own spirits), return transfers to the boat, nitrox fills for enriched air certified divers, dive insurance. Unless otherwise stated, all the listed items need to be paid on arrival.
How to get there: You will be met at the airport, if you arrive on Sunday evening, by a uniformed liveaboard crew member or tourism agent who will transfer you to the yacht. If you already on the ground before that time, then you can board at the Neco Marine Harbour at any time after 16:00 hrs on Sunday.
The Palau Aggressor returns to the harbour at the end of each cruise after lunch on Saturday afternoon. Check out on Sunday morning is at 08:00 hrs, and you will be transferred to nearby hotels or the airport. The last dive of the trip will be at around 12:00 noon on the second last day of the trip. Please wait at least 18 hours before flying after diving. For more information see our Palau travel information section.

"Boat and service excellent - helped by the fact that the boat was only about 40% full. Handled the diving process and equipment (diving and photographic) very efficiently. All staff were friendly and helpful. Only 'very good' because the level of guiding was not as high as I have experienced elsewhere. To be fair, Palau is a much higher labour-cost country than most of SE Asia, and the website did not promise fully guided dives. But in practice we did have at least 2 guides with us on every dive, and their spotting of marine life in particular was not as good or generous as I have had elsewhere.
Dive The World gave rapid replies, usually helpful and personalised, and answering any questions that I have raised. Willingness to look at a range of options to find the best for me (though that did not apply much on this occasion, with only a limited choice in Palau). Good prices, including discounts where available." - Gordon Bryden Reid, Malaysia, 28 August 2023 ...
"Pros: Awesome top deck with large hammocks and lots of other places to sit/relax around the boat. Great food, often themed eg Mexican, Japanese... (overall better than Siren, but less tofu/protein options for me as a vegetarian). Dive gear stays on the dive boat so we're not carrying it around.
Cons: Typical big metallic boat (and the dive boat mechanics were weird). I enjoyed the uniqueness of the Siren boat more than Aggressor. Snacks were sometimes weird. One day morning and afternoon snack would both be savoury and the next day they'd both be sweet. I'd think a savoury each morning and a sweet each afternoon would make things more even for different people. Though they were mostly really enjoyable." - Kelda Bindel, New Zealand, 4 September 2022 ...
"Wonderful cruise! Thank you! Andy is a talented cruise director, and he did an excellent job of making the tour fun and safe. The entire crew were top notch. Ronnie is a great chef, and he accommodated my dietary restrictions. Loved how often the crew cleaned our cabins and changed the bins. Loved the hot towels, water on board, and welcome back drink after the dives. Really loved the free flow beer. Jim is a fantastic captain and guide. Dustin, Hector, Joe, and Herence are lovely, as is Bangs. The operation was smooth on all fronts. I can't think of any areas in need of improvement. Maybe offer longer cruises! Thank you for a lovely holiday! " - Charlie Boodman, USA, 10 January 2019...
"All the staff are polite, helpful and professional. Aggressor II also has new and reliable equipments that secured my dive trip. The cabin room is very spacious and nicely ventilated. Everything was satisfactory." - Yuyao Wang, China, 29 December 2015...
"Staff - excellent. Food - excellent. Cabine - excellent. Facilities: Very good because there were only nine of us in the liveaboard but I think the boat is too small if it is full (18 people). For instance, the top deck" - David Alfos, Spain, 19 October 2015...
"I had a great time, the service was excellent and the ship was great. The crew was professional, knowledgeable and friendly. I rented gear which was in good repair and worked well. The food was amazing and the amenities were what could be expected from a liveaboard boat of that size." - Lora Sutter, USA, 11 October 2014 ...
"Comfortable boat, great food, friendly helpful dive staff and good diving." - Mike Geary, France, 14 April 2014 ...
"Excellent service, the chef was awesome! The dive masters were very friendly and always enthusiastic to hit the water." - Graham Austin, Canada, 8 April 2014 ...
