Comments [None] The Bay Islands Aggressor is highly UNDERRATED. A big stable boat that is extremely well run and organized. The crew went out of their way to make this a vacation that we will never forget. The value for our diving dollar was excellent. Even though the weather was less than perfect, the capt'n went out of his way to find quiet and calm areas to dive at. We were able to dive the maximum of 5 dives per day and all at different spots. With poor weather, the land based operators were not going out while we moved around Roatan to find calm conditions. We were unable to dive at sites other than Roatan because of the weather, but the capt'n still tried even motored a long ways out to another spot only to find that the currents were too strong. The food was excellent, I gained 7 pounds. They really must find a way to keep Jurgen as the cook. Advice, don't go unless he is the cook. My wife and I were in the forward most cabin #1, further back in #6 the noise from the generator below in the engine room was deafening which went on 24/7. Another note about the crew, my nitrox tank was refilled immediately upon coming up. Awesome compressors, maybe 2 minutes to fill a tank to 3000 psi plus. At the end of the week, on our last dive, a baby humpback whale showed up above us for a couple minutes. What a way to end the week. At the end, my computer showed that my N2 and O2 were maxed out and I'm 51 years old. Regarding the flying arrangements. SOL air really screwed things up badly requiring an extra day going and 2 extra coming home. I hope they get it together someday, TACA needs competition to keep prices down. Again we were very happy with the Bay Islands Aggressor, a little rough around the edges but still a very good value.
