Comments The good: Food (special needs accommodated)
Most of crew
Sharks on every dive.
No limits on dive time.
The OK: Diving--reef is not in the best of shape.
Visibility around 40-50 feet
One divemaster in water for 18 divers
Reef in rough shape. Corals are covered in sand.

The bad: My wife and I are recreational side mount divers--single tank. We travel with our side mount harnesses and regs. We were told we could not dive our gear because the Aggressor Fleet has a policy of no side mounts. We were then required to use their BCs and regs. If I had known I could not use my gear configuration, I would have brought my plate and wing. I don't like diving with rental gear. I especially didn't appreciate finding out when I was setting up on the boat.

The Aggressor is "proud" of the fact that they have policies and procedures in place for the entire fleet that keeps everything consistent and "safe". I discovered at the end of the trip that according to the Aggressor web site, a single side mount is allowed. I pointed this out to Captain Amanda and she verified that this was the case. Apologized for not allowing us to use our own gear and gave us a credit for the Nitrox fee. I would have rather dived my own gear.

Captain Amanda was great. Rob, the engineer, divemaster and Amanda's husband had an acerbic sense of humor which I did not find entertaining or welcoming. The rest of the crew was great and all relatively temporary.
