Comments The #1 dive boat in the world. As stated many times in the past when you have a husband and wife teqm owning and running a boat and live on the boat you do get personal attention to every detail. My brother and sister in law, who were not wreck divers, but are now ,could not believe how after just one day of diving on the outside of the wrecks they ended up diving on the inside from day two on. This was our third trip to Truk. The first time was for three days diving the small skiffs from the Blue Lagoon(I would not suggest this unless you have no other choice and then it's super). I dove the Agressor the first time and now we won't go back unless it's on the Odyssey. Both the Odyssey and the Thorfin will be going into dry dock for repairs and the Agressor is leaving for Indonesia for good! We dove on the Odyssey with the most professional and fun group from Michigan. Deep pro divers. We were able to do the Sanfrancisco Maru deep into the holds(185'plus) for 15+ minutes) and everyone gave high fives after the dive was over because we dove our profiles perfectly with Lenny(the Captain) diving with us because he loves this deep wreck. I had e-mailed Lenny asking him if he had a guitar? Reply: Yes so Jon, my brother in law brought his flute and we jammed just about every night. We are on a low carb diet and they Tried!!! I didn't spend time on the dives because they are what they are; some of the greatest dives ever. Constant and consistent! The dive crew will take you to r2d2 or any deep penetration you desire. The Nipo was almost as great as any of the deeper wrecks. WE DIDN'T WANT TO LEAVE SINCE WE FELT LIKE THE ODYSSEY WAS OUT HOME.
