Aggressor II was an excellent operation. There were 10 crew for 14 guests.
Dive briefings were complete. Divemaster GianCarlo was excellent as
naturalist and divemaster. We had great weather: the long passage to Darwin
and Wolf Islands was relatively calm. Currents were moderate for the most
part but one did have to get down quickly in order to stay with the group.
We were very lucky at Darwin Island and saw at least one whale shark on
every dive! There were healthy schools of hammerheads numbering over 100
and flotillas of spotted eagle rays on some dives. I was very comfortable
in a dry suit. Most of the others wore 7mm wetsuits and they admitted to
being cold after some of the dives when the temperature was in the low
60's. Food and service were excellent, the cabins were for two and were
individually air conditioned. I would definitely sign up to do this dive
trip again.
