We were a group of seven divers from Houston ranging in experiece from Tech
to Beginner. Travel was Houston; to LA, and to Fiji with a puddle jumper
from Nadi to Suva. The trip overall is ok, but very long. At least one set
of luggage was delayed both going and returning due to mix ups in LA. I'd
suggest rechecking luggage for each flight segment.

The Aggressor overall was very good to excellent. Accomodations were as
expected; a small double cabin with top and bottom bunks. Storage is at a
minimum. Capt. Ned and the crew were outstanding accomodating each diver's
needs when asked.Food was plentiful and tasteful; not gormet, but very
good. Special needs were accomodated within reason.

Do not miss the village visit. To prepare the crew introduced us to Kava
the evening prior to the visit. It is a social activity that's worth
trying. The villagers were kind and entertaining and they truly seemed to
enjoy having us visit. There was no effort made to sell any items to us.

Overall the diving was very good. Plenty of soft corals on top of the
pinnacles and awesome walls. Large fish life was good; mantas on the safety
stop & walls, sharks (Grey reef, White tip, Black tip, Hammerhead,
etc). Viz was outstanding on the walls. Reef hooks were provided for the
dives with strong currents. Diving was done from a skiff that was raised
and lowered to the dive deck making entry/exit very easy. Gear was set up
on the skiff and remained for the week with fills by long whips. Nitrox is
provided at 30%; actuals were +/- <1% all week. DMs on all dives, but
freedom was allowed for personal profiles. Depth and Time recorded at the
end of each dive.
