yes very helpful. My wife and I will be on board their in May. this wil be are 3rd aggressor trip. and we have been on several other liveaboards with other companys. i find it disconcerting to not have dive masters in the water and available as guides. we have nearly 300 dives, and i'm on vacation i want to enjoy my trip not worry about where the boat is.
