Comments I would recommend the Cayman Aggressor. The operation is well run with a great crew. I really didn't have any issues but all the small details were handled quickly and efficiently. A1 Scuba in Denver CO set up the trip and we had to boat to ourselves. The boat was sold out even though 2 people had last minute cancellations.

We spent the first night on Grand Cayman. We were welcomed and immediately upon boarding set up our equipment and the empty bags were left on shore. The rooms while small had plenty of room for storing your clothes and other items. We made 4 dives the second day there and then at dinner time left for Little Cayman. We did the 32 dives on Bloody Bay Wall, 1 dive off of Cayman Brac and 2 morning dives on Grand Cayman after the return crossing. A total of 39 dives were offered, I managed 36. Both crossings were smooth with the great weather we enjoyed.

The weather was beautiful the whole time we were there. The food was excellent and plentiful. If you expect to lose weight on this boat you will be disappointed. Plenty of food, very well prepared. Kingsley the chef is an excellent cook with deserts to die for. Served at the table mostly with the occasional buffet style. Jonathan was everywhere and seemed ready to take care of any problem large or small. Rodel kept the tanks full and always had a smile on his face. Heather and Emily worked their tails off diving, taking photos and general hard work. Captain Alan works hard and is entertaining and very experienced. He is reported to be getting ready to retire in a month or so.

Though this is only my second live aboard I find it hard to believe it could get any better. The only negative was the problems with the Nitrox. We got 32% for the first half of the trip and some sort of problem occurred and we finished the trip with 28-29%. The cost was discounted to compensate for this.

Without a doubt I would do this trip again without hesitation. It will be a great memory for me for many years to come.
