UW Photo Comments Good table and camera rinse. Crew did good job of handling our equipment and giving recommendations. Generally pleased with this aspect. I captured a Frog Fish with my Sea&Sea HD1200 and used the Ikelite housing with dual strobes with Nikon D5000 and macro lens to capture sea horses, lizard fish, scorpian fish, and others I've never seen before.

Comments The boat is worn out and in need of retro work. But it was acceptable due to the new Utila boat coming down in three weeks and this one going to dry dock.

I've seen better diving. Choppy weather and since this week they are getting the first hurricane it is understandable.

The Captain and crew are great and their new cook (a swede) put pounds on us all. It was his first attempt preparing Lion Fish and we loved it, including the salsa dip he made with it.

Nitrox started out at 28 and ended at 31.

This was our second Aggressor trip and we look forwarded to more. San Pedro Hilton was our overnighter for the trip. Crime in city is bad and Honduras we saw was rich and destitute classes.
