Comments The Jardines Aggressor was reviewed in the July 2016 addition of Undercurrent. Based on my trip, the information in the review was accurate. Pay attention to the Cuba Tips insert. The conversion rate was 88 cents on the US dollar. It will take hours to retrieve your luggage in Havana. It took 2 hours to retrieve my luggage. A number of people reported that their luggage was opened but nothing was reported as missing.

The 28 foot fiberglass tenders were as described putting your gear at risk of damage. The ladders on the tenders (one on each side) could have been easier to climb if they were less vertical. Most divers took their BCs off in the water and had the crew lift them into the tender.

Cabin 5 below the main salon had two twin beds along the walls with a narrow aisle between them. The cabin was tight for two people to maneuver around the cabin at the same time. There was adequate storage in the cabin.

Facial tissue does not appear to be used in Cuba. Bring your own if you need it. Tap water on the land portion was not potable. Bottled water was available on the buses going from Havana to Jucaro. You may want to bring antibacterial wipes as some of the restrooms on land did not have soap or toilet paper.
