Comments I dive with Aggressor almost exclusively. I am a single female traveler, Aggressor is a safe fun way to do a dive trip when my dive buddies cannot coordinate schedules and I need a water fix. Aggressor is great about setting up flights and coordinating.
FOOD: The food is almost always very nice on any of the Aggressor Fleet. That said the deserts were a little strange this trip. They served many Indonesian Puddings, kind of like a thick Jello Bland formed thing. Main dishes were great!!!! They served Filet Mignon, incredible fish dishes too.
Diving: We only dived Raja 4 dives, then started heading to Cenderawsih Bay to dive with the whale sharks. Raja was great diving, and diving with the Whale Sharks was awesome! The dives in-between were ok, not great. Next time I would dive Raja Amphat separately from the Whale Sharks and not do the combined. Only one or the other. Water was warm enough to use a skin and I am usually cold.
Boat: Was well maintained, main salon AC was a little weak, sometimes it was hot when everyone was having dinner. Boat was comfortable, clean, nice beds, good nitrox, good dive deck.
Overall a good trip!!
