Okay, admittedly I'm a fan of Peter's Hughes operation.  So right up front
you know I like to be pampered along with great diving.  So now on to the
Aggressor Fleet at Cocos Island.  Following a late  (autopilot failure)but
uneventful crossing, leading to missed dives upon arrival diving met all
expectations.  The pelagic life is as offered in the brochures, sharks,
sharks, and more sharks; mantas, whale sharkes,'s all there. 
The accomodations on the other hand leave room for improvement.  Staff were
competent, engaging, knowledgable and definitely enjoyed their jobs.  The
ship is in need of work, and compared to the Okeanos vessels that we tailed
all week long, there is was no comparison. The food was another
story...rating it a 2 is being kind.  Bland, much like one would find at a
secret CIA prison!! Every meal was served buffet still with the underlining
cost the overriding concern.  Okay, I admitted early on, I like to be
pampered.  After all those Peter Hughes trips, there is no comparison. 
Problem is Peter doesn't go where the action is!!! As the week came to end
we were forced to cut the diviing short, so we could make the trip back
before low tide, missing one done dive is Cocos is not to be
