Comments Loved, loved, loved this trip! The Aggressor Roatan is a beautiful boat, and the crew is absolutely phenomenal! I arrived a little early on Saturday and was met at the airport by an Aggressor representative who drove me to the dock, and took time on the way to give a little history about the island, point out things of interest, and provide a scenic route on the way to the boat. The boat is docked right next to Romeo's Restaurant, and I waited there with some of the other passengers until we were allowed to board. We got our gear set up while the crew put our luggage in our cabins, and then had a welcome from the crew that evening: Captain Alan, Cruise Director and videographer Gabi, Divemasters Jesse, Willie, and Kevin, Chef Milton, and Steward/Chef Jana. Couldn't have asked for a better crew! All week long they took great care of us, and the food was absolutely out of this world! Captain Alan said he only gets two complaints - the food is too good, and it's more than everyone can eat, and that was absolutely the truth. With COVID, we had masks on as we boarded but were able to take them off once fully on board. I think we had to show proof of our negative COVID test as well....definitely had to do this before boarding the plane.

The diving was fantastic, and we had great weather. Dive sites included Mary's Place, Mr. Bud, Valley of the Kings, Cayos Cochinos & Utila, Cara a Cara, Tavianna's, El Aguila, and Half Moon Bay Wall. There was a shark feed dive as well. Vis was fantastic, temps were in the low to mid 80's, and we had a DM/guide on each dive, although you and your buddy could go off on your own, you didn't have to stick with the guide. Plenty of critters for UWP, lots of macro, and lots of bigger critters as well - reef sharks, turtles, eels, etc. The DM's were fantastic at pointing out critters, they must have built in magnifying lenses for eyes, I was constantly amazed at what they would be able to find and point out. On one of the dives DM Wille coaxed a Stargazer out of the sand for us, and Jesse was one of the best at finding the small stuff. We were very spoiled by the crew - before we entered the water the crew put our fins on for us at the dive deck, and took them off for us as we exited - this was their "Fin-tastic" service for divers. Gabi was the main videographer for the week, with some of the other DM's taking a turn as well. She put together a fantastic video she put on USB's that were available for purchase for those who wanted one - she did a fantastic job at capturing the fun times we had over the course of the week!

Before we knew it the week was over, and we were back at the dock. The boat coordinated for COVID testing right on the boat, cost was $60 and we had the results in about 2hrs - the crew gave us the hard copy printout to bring with us to the airport. The boat also coordinated brunch and a brewery tour for those of us who had a long wait before our outbound flight. We went to Roatan Island Brewing Company - great beer!

This was such a fantastic trip, it may well be the best liveaboard trip I've had so far. I will definitely be doing it again!
