The Kona Aggressor crew is extremely well-organized, efficient, friendly
and accommodating.  Among the best crews we have experienced in our 31
liveaboard trips.  The chef had attended a culinary institute and the meals
were outstanding--we've eaten at upscale restaurants that couldn't compare!
 The boat holds 14 divers and all diving is from boat rather than from
skiffs.  The dive deck is a bit tight, but two good fresh water showers and
plenty of deck towels.  We were somewhat disappointed with the diving; the
visibility was excellent but the region seemed rather "fished
out" and not much big stuff. Some interesting caves and lava tubes.
One night dive to see mantas was very good but crowded because other local
dive boats and their divers are at the same spot at the same time. The
cabins are pretty small but the heads and showers worked well, the bed was
comfortable and fresh towels daily. And there's a hot tub on the sun deck!
It was a lot of fun, thanks to the outstanding crew consisting of Captain
Jonatha, Jeff, Brenden, Auvie, Pam and Chef Robert.
