Join Optical Ocean Sales’ owner Jack Connick for an amazing photo safari to Palau in Micronesia, April 8 through the 15th, 2018. Our 7 night, 5.5 dive day expedition will be staying on the luxurious liveaboard Rock Islands Aggressor, based out of Koror, Palau.
We will explore the reefs and waters in and around the limestone rock islands of Palau. Dive sites will include WWII wrecks, German Channel, Ulong Channel, Blue Holes and the famous Blue Corner – Micronesia’s most famous shark dive. The vessel is a spacious, comfortable catamaran. Stretching 106 feet, 31 feet wide and accommodates 18 guests who are pampered by a crew of 8! Deluxe cabins are en-suite with a/c. The Aggressor has large camera table and excellent photo facilities. Diving is conducted from a 30’ hard boat that launches with a power lift system, divers, gear and all! Optical Ocean Sales is working closely with the Aggressor for a special dive trip that will emphasize photo opportunities. Mantas in German Channel, Giant Napoleon wrasse, turtles, large schools of barracuda, huge tridacna clams and schools of small fish like trevally, triangle butterflyfish, and countless sharks are also on the agenda of critters to view. And the reefs abound with macro subjects, small gobies, nudibranchs, shrimp and crabs are all on view against the soft and hard coral backdrops.
You also have an opportunity to step back in time and visit the island of Peleliu, site of one of the fiercest battles in the Pacific during WWII, as well as dive the more southern sites there.
