Great trip.  Great diving.  Don't be scared of all the talk of current and
cold.  While this trip wasn't for beginners, and bouyancy and air
consumption is important - if you can do a free hanging saftey stop; and do
about a 50 minutes multi-level profile - you can do this.  Make sure to
check the current water temp.  A 5 mm with a hood was only necessary for
the southern islands, a 3 mm would have been better for wolfe and darwin. 
Hammerheads, dolphins, turtles are everywhere.  The shore tours are great. 
Stay with the group - one couple got seperated and had an hour of tense
floating until the rest of the divers surfaced and the dingy came for
Aggressor fleet does it right -- food, accomdations and diving safety were
first class.
