Comments This was our second liveaboard. We loved it! The rooms on the boat were small, but you don't spend much time in your room. (Utila Aggressor is getting a new, bigger boat in the next year.) This boat held 14 divers--we only had 9 the week we were there. Food was amazing. We really enjoyed the diving, too. Lots of wall diving and sea mounts. Great places to find little critters--tons of little crabs, cleaner shrimp, blennies. Coral and sponges were generally in great shape, too. Lots of different kinds of eels, crabs, lobsters. Even found some slipper lobsters and octopus on night dives.

The crew was great--they'd lead the dive for divers who wanted a guide. If you wanted to go off with your buddy, that was fine, too (except on drift dives where we all stuck together). Generally we had smaller groups on night dives so we all stayed together then, too.

We had one day that it was a little rainy, but in general great weather. The crew tried to stay ahead of the weather and go to places where the weather was better. Can't wait for our next Aggressor!
