UW Photo Comments Super table for photo equipment, except some divers found it convenient to use for non-photo items. Divers respected water bath for cameras; crew handled equipment responsibly. Crew well informed about UW photography; PC available for diver use; separate "dark room" for crew to process trip photos & video. Crew provided CD with photos for free and DVD for $$$; both very professional.

Comments The only "bad" on this boat was that the diving was not very challenging; Belize is not the Galapagos Islands. Having said that, the diving was fun . . . five dives a day were offered and most of us couldn't do that . . . we needed more surface interval time; but I got a lot of 60+ minute dives at a decent depth. The Blue Hole was fantastic . . . and Silver Caves had a lot of shark traffic. Most of the sites had decent walls and a good amount of life on the reefs. Not a lot of eels, crabs, lobsters or octopi; but there were good amounts of Angelfishes, Damselfishes, Hamlets, Tarpon, etc. We saw sharks at one site only; occasional turtles, Eagle Rays and Sting Rays. Food and accommodations on board were excellent; drinks & snacks were available 24 hours; crew was available any time; AC and hot water were plentiful. NITROX was available; cylinders were refilled shortly after each dive and measures were in place to insure the right gas; top-offs were available if needed. Safety was paramount . . . crew took care of divers unable to carry equipment; assisted divers in/out of water; recorded everyone in/out of water. The crew was proactive in arranging land tours on return to Belize City; very service-oriented. The Aggressor Fleet has a real winner here, thanks mostly to Capt Marc and his first class crew.
