The Diving:

You’ll be diving in water that averages 78-84 F. Most guests make as many as 3-4 dives each day, so some sort of protection is needed. A 3mm wet suit should be comfortable and adequate. Due to swift currents in Palau, it is suggested divers bring safety items such as a Dive Alert, Safety Sausage, and any other safety items you feel necessary. Most diving in Palau is drift diving so guests should be comfortable with a current.

All dives are made from the Palau Aggressor’s 35′ custom built high speed, outboard skiff capable of carrying 18 guests for quick access to even the most remote dive sites.In between dives, you may snorkel, explore secluded beaches, or just relax with a cold drink and mid-morning snack. Guests may dive up to 4-5 dives per day and there is night diving on 3 nights of the charter, conditions permitting.

During a typical week, Aggressor guests dive Palau’s best areas including Blue Corner, German Channel, Big Drop-off wall, and Siaes Tunnel. Several sites have strong currents, therefore, Palau diving is recommended for intermediate divers.
