Comments This was one of the better trips I have had in a long time. First the diving was just amazing. If you love coral like I do, the Straits of Tiran had some of the best corals I have seen in a very long time.

Thanks for the report. I will be going the end of December on the Aggressor III for one week down south and one week up north. Did you have any problems getting your required Covid test prior to returning to the States? Where and how did you go about getting it? Thanks again

Aggressor was awesome in that regard. Normally they would have the doctor come to the boat, however, that was suspended while we were there. Aggressor arranged transportation for us to go to the tourist testing site, and included a local guide who was able to run interference for us with the authorities. It only took an hour all told. The crew went out of their way to make sure that we got what we needed.
