Comments The Bahamas Aggressor is the older boat the Carib Dancer. The cabins are smaller than newer boats, but the food was excellent and the crew was outstanding. I went in January and that was a mistake, for it was cool and windy. Belize or Costa Rica even Cozumel that time of year is better for the weather. The diving was mediocre. In 6 days we saw one or two turtles, and three or four eels, and the fish populations were less than any of the above mentioned sites. The best thing underwater was the Caribbean Reef Sharks--lots, but only on three different sites, not just cruising down most walls. Beautiful coral and few critters. Disappointing. As stated, the crew was outstanding, and suddenly one evening we got in a squall with 9 foot swells and a 50 mph wind which broke the mooring. It was a night dive and could have been a disaster, but the captain and crew did a very professional job, getting the divers on board safely. We dove in areas with little currents, so perhaps that is why we didn't see the palagics.
