Went on the Turks & Caicos Aggressor II for two weeks back-to-back over
the Christmas/New Year's Holiday.

Weather was absolutely spectacular all 14 days (what luck!!). In fact, the
weather was soooo good that during the Christmas week we were able to sail
way out to West Sand Spit . . . a dive site rarely visited by anyone. Last
time the Aggressor was there was six months ago and the vis was poor. This
time the vis was 80 to 100 feet! What a treat!!

I've been on a few dive boats in the Caribbean in my lifetime. I must say
that the T&C Aggressor is probably the best dive boat sailing the
Caribbean today. Designed and built from the hull up by Captain Piers Van
Der Walt, the T&C Aggressor II has every modern convenience a diver
would want in a liveaboard dive ship. Yeah . . . it's a little more
expensive than other liveaboards, but it's worth every penny of the extra

I think part of the magic of the T&C Aggressor is the fact that Piers
Van Der Walt is Owner, Designer, and Captain of the ship. If I'm not
mistaken, Piers is one of the few Owner/Operators of high-end liveaboard
dive ships sailing the Caribbean. There's a lot of pride-of-ownership
visible in this operation!

Which brings me to the crew . . . Amanda (Photo Pro), Lucie (Video Pro),
Brian (Instructor) and Cyril (Cook). I've been on the T&C Aggressor for
four weeks over the past two years. I marvel at Piers' ability to always
have the best crews sailing the Caribbean. They made the trip that much
more special to all of the guests.
