Very good trip for number of total dives - 5 offered per day.   Staff very
helpful with identification and general info on fish and small critters.   
Large number of reef sharks & photo opportunities,
along with lots of stingrays.   One hammerhead, at least one turtle
per day.     Most reefs in good shape, some nice elkhorn and large
fans in good shape.    A disturbing number of lionfish noted - every
day and in every dive location.    High winds prevented visit to French
Cay, but staff did their best to provide best diving possible.
Food was ok, but certainly not the best of my liveaboard experiences.
Do not agree with tip policy of one big pot and not rewarding individuals. 
  Some were outstanding, some mediocre.  This Aggressor boat is a great
bang for the buck.
