Comments Another very pleasant week of diving aboard the Aggressor in the Cayman Islands. This is a very well run operation with a top notch crew that caters to the dive guests. Captain Lauren runs a tight ship with humor and abundant good will- probably the most interaction with a captain I've ever had on a trip. All of the crew were very pleasant and professional- the nitrox fills were a consistent 32% and the tanks filled to a strong 3200 psi if not more. The food was very good and plentiful- I had to ask for 1/2 servings at dinner, still gained 3 pounds! The night crossing to Little Cayman was a bit rough, but we had a few days of nice diving on Bloody Bay Wall before heading back to Grand Cayman. Highlights of the trip included puppy like Nassau Groupers that follow you along your dive(and tolerate petting!), actually saw one eat a small Lionfish on his own! Curious Reef sharks also checking divers out, turtles and Eagle Rays cruising along and healthy coral and reef fish populations. We decided as a group to do dusk dives before dinner instead of night dives after dinner, got one dawn dive in as well. Crossings are weather dependent so no guarantees on getting out to Little Cayman, a 7 hour crossing. I was doing REEF surveys the entire trip and was pretty much allowed to dive my own profile, back to the boat with 500 PSI. 5 dives a day. Highly recommended for a relaxing dive trip.
