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.

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.
