Comments The Cayman Aggressor IV experience was the best week of diving I have had in 41 years. Capt. Sam and crew Shaunah, Graham, Shawn and Osa, provided a perfect week of vacation for this old drysuit diver from the Pacific Northwest.
We had excellent briefings with large sketches of the divesite every dive. Air was always generous at 3000+. It was pure, comfortable diving at it's very best. All cameras were handled professionaly by the crew and the attention to our needs were met with a smile every time.
The chef had the week off but the up and coming steward put on a show of her own and delighted us with great food all week.
The best part of the trip was the wall diving. Incredible swimthrus broke out into the bluest great wide open I have ever seen. Turn left or right and you have fantastic walls with huge sponges of all types, gigantic lobster, leatherback turtles, coral, nursesharks, rays, grouper and tropicals. The view from 130' to the surface is the stuff dreams are made of.
The Cayman Aggressor IV is a clean, nicely appointed dive yacht with an excellent dive deck, comfortable salon and great berthing areas. I opted for the cheap seats and had a stateroom for two all to myself. I plan on being a repeat customer.
