Live aboards are always good trips. The 2001 trip with captain, Tom the Viking, and crew and dive masters, Paul, Randy, and Steve, were excellent and much better than the 2012 trip. I will probably not go on this live aboard again. Cayman is fun for a weekend getaway, but Grand Cayman sees a lot of diving and while enjoyable, the marine life pales in comparison to many other destinations.

My favorite dive destination. 2002 was the Palau Aggressor — EAT, SLEEP, & DIVE. 2005 was land based at Palau Pacific Resort. In Yap we stayed at both Manta Ray Bay hotel and Traders Ridge. Both hotels have their merits. We are returning to Manat Ray Bay Hotel on our December 2012 trip and wil be on the Dancer Live aboard in Palau. Abundant and diverse marine life in both Palau and Yap. Manta Rays in Yap — 11 at one time during one of our dives.
