Comments The accommodations on Aggressor #1 were somewhat disappointing as the ship was due for dry dock after our trip (#2 boat had already been refurbished). The showers didn't work in the rooms, and our shower door was broken. Some common areas of the boat were showing significant wear. However, our dive guides were the big disappointment. Every dive was either against the current, or we just went down and sat there the entire dive. The rest of our group were on boat #2 and they were taken with the current, I guess our crew thought we needed some exercise. We did many sites more than once (up to 4 times). The dingy took us and picked us up, but was difficult to get back in. We would hand our weights up and then the BC (most of the time to a fellow diver), and then pull ourselves up. Most of the ladies wanted to use the ladder in the back, and had to request it be put down every time. However, the food was great!
