Comments Overall this trip was a fantastic live aboard dive trip with high standards as typically provided by Aggressor. The Roatan Aggressor is a new location for the previous Utilia Aggressor, and the boat has been refurbished stem to stern. Dive sites included sites off of the islands of Rotatan and Utila, as well as open water sea mounts. There was one planned shark dive which was so good the divers voted to do the shark dive again on a subsequent day, which was also great. There is plenty of profile variety with reef, wall and wrecks over the week of dives. Night dives were also very good and offered every night but the last.

The boat crew and serivce was one of the best I have ever seen, and the dive deck layout is generous and easy to dive directly from the yacht. Accommodations are standard Aggressor yacht format, small but nice rooms with in room showers and comfortable A/C. The food was outstanding and plentiful and a nice variety.

Once in Roatan, plan for getting to the boat by taxi. As of my trip in June 2017, Aggressor did not offer a shuttle to/from the airport. It is about a 20-30 minute taxi from the airport to the boat which is docked at Romeo's Restaurant, and it has great food also. Lunch on arrival day was great.

When departing Roatan, plan plenty of time at the airport prior to your departure time. All of the U.S. bound flights arrive and depart within a couple of hours of each other. The security lines are very long on departure day. Plan to check in 3 hours before your flight to be safe.
