I am a beginner and did not take advantage of the fabulous facilities
except slightly. Steve was magic with the camera.  We enjoyed evening
videos of that days dive.  The complimentary and purchased DVD's were well
worth the money.  If you want to learn or improve your advanced skills this
is definitely the place to do it.

My friends and I lucked out BIG TIME.  This trip could not have been more
perfect!  I was traveling with two other's; my sister-in-law and her long
time childhood friend - we are all in our 40's.  I have the most diving
experience so they were a little nervous - one made more dives than I did! 
Just as the Aggressor says - Eat, Sleep and Dive which we did for 5 and 1/2
days.  I did 23 dives out of a total possible of 26 (sat out 3 of the night
dives).The big question when diving the Caymans on a liveaboard is:
"will we be able to make the crossing to Cayman Brac and Little
Cayman" as the seas can be rough.  Within two days we were diving the
famous Bloody Bay Wall and the Russian wreck the Tibbetts. Another concern
was: "would every dive site be covered with other divers and
boats" - absolutely never a problem. EVERY DIVE WITHOUT EXCEPTION WAS
PERFECT! The seas were calm, the visibility crystal clear, the marine life
and corals plentiful and the crew and ship unbelievably amazing. I took my
chances and had the fleet assign me a roommate and we got along great (she
gave me the bottom bunk). We became dive buddie's and got our Level II
certification (thanks John!). My average dive was 45 min., 80 ft (I did
several deep dives for certification) and even did the scooters - too much
fun! Captain Tom ran a fun, organized and safe ship and all of the
passengers got along famously such that we gave the crew going away gifts
at the going away Crew Party.  We were spoiled with a French trained guest
diver chef Marie who made magic in a small boat galley.  Warm towels,
treats, hot tub, freshwater shower greeted us after every dive.  Top deck
barbeques (prime rib one night!) and service by the hardworking dive
guides/cabin stewards/galley crew (all one and the same) never stopped. 
Having already mentioned the others - thank you also to Dave and Nick - two
of the most hard working, dedicated and fun dive guides you will ever meet.
For you "can't get away from business types" AT&T Wireless
works perfect and not nearly as expensive as every other type of
communication I researched. I will definitely go on another Aggressor trip
and hopefully to the Caymans with Captain Tom again.
