Comments Very warm welcome from very accommodating and friendly crew who seem genuinely interested in meeting and hanging out with their guests for the week. Love that most cabins are on the same floor as the dive deck--if I forgot a battery (etc), it made it a lot easier to run and grab it. Clear schedule of dives and meals posted each day. I took the PADI fish ID course, and Colby was genuinely interested in making sure I got a lot out of it--he worked with me on several more dives than required, and I really enjoyed that. I came by myself, and once again had no trouble finding a buddy--in fact, I went on dives with every guest on the boat. The Aggressor attracts hard core divers with solid skills, so it's very pleasant to be around them. You can dive your air, which I love. Food was excellent. The crew just bends over backwards to make sure you have anything you need, and they do so cheerfully, willingly and proactively. Another fantastic Aggressor experience!
