UW Photo Comments Camera Table was for Camera's ONLY - But towards the end of the week the crew was putting other drinks on the camera table. When I would ask .... Want to see a new camera and point to a cup they would promptly remove it. Overall rating would have been a 5 had it not been for the crew leaving glasses or cups on the camera table.

Comments The Cayman Aggressor is an recently updated boat. Savio the cook was a good cook but not great in my estimation - Typical Aggressor buffet style food, with one exception, we had steak one evening on the top deck. 'Captain Kurt' was not the normal captain, but did a great job as did the rest of the crew. The diving by Carribeans standards was typical. As much diving as the Cayman's gets it was in pretty good shape. We saw Turtles, Stingrays and a couple of sharks and then the usual assortment of 'Fish' and lots of coral. My favorite sites where 'Kieth Tibbets Wreck' even though recently sunk, I am a wreck-haloc. Bloody Bay was also nice. I would like to add if at all possible be sure and let them know you want to make the crossing (weather permitting) to Little Cayman & Cayman Brac everything there is in much better shape than what it is in Grand Cayman. We dove mostly 5 dives a day, which was great! Airfills was 3000-3200 and if they where not, just tell one of the crew and he would be happy to top it off for you. Our stateroom was cleaned daily and even had a TV/VCR in it - First Aggressor Fleet that had that - Nice touch. Got some great pictures and had a good time. Next stop Turks & Caicos on Peter Hughes Sea Dancer - Look for the differences between boats.
