On-board were Mike & Mike, professional photographers from the Jim
Church Underwater School of Digital Photography.  They provided two lessons
a day, plus lots of advice and one-on-one assistance.  The boat had ample
facilities to store/maintain camera equipment, charge batteries and edit
images with computers (the boat's iMac was available for those without a
computer).

The best things about Aggressor boats are the crews.  CAPT Henri ran a
tight ship; the crew was always available to fill passenger needs;
accommodations were comfortable and clean; meals and snacks were first
class (thanks, Jonathan!).  Operations on the dive deck were smooth;
cylinders were refilled quickly and without disruption; hot showers and
warm towels available for each diver.  Since everyone on board was a
photographer, the camera dip tank was used for cameras only and the storage
area didn't have dive gear on it.  A couple of the dive sites were a bit
lacking and there were not a lot of large pelagics (couple of sharks only);
few barracuda; lots of sting rays & turtles . . . but only 3 rays
showed up at Sting Ray City.  There were good sites (Babylon was
spectacular!).  Only one wreck (Russian "destroyer"), but a good
one.  Emphasis on this dive trip was good photography . . .  the crew made
it fun . . . Mike & Mike made it meaningful and very worthwhile.
