This is a wonderful trip that every diver should try and experience. The
visibility was not great but there is a lot of plankton in the water and
there are thermoclines. We used 5 mil suits with core warmers and were
comfortable on all dives. This was our third Aggressor trip. This trip is
expensive but the land tours and diving are exceptional. The dive leaders
took good care of everyone and all of our equipment. We dove from dingys
for a total of 17 dives. We saw lots of hammerheads at Wolf and Darwin as
well as a huge number of moreys. The fish here don't seem to be as colorful
as some places but they more than make up for it in quanity. We saw various
schools with thousands of fish in them. Some locations offered diving with
sea lions which we loved. We saw huge schools of tuna and three individual
ones that weighed hundreds of pounds each. This is a very nice boat, well
maintained and clean. We had a good crew that provided all our needs. This
is a special experience in a magical place.
