Comments 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.
