Comments 5.5 days of diving (27 possible; 1 night dive was cancelled because of rough seas.) Crew of 6 is small, diligent, maximally attentive and friendly - among the best of our 27 liveaboards.
Like most Aggressors, cabins are nicely appointed but tiny and all but 1 have bunk beds. Combined toilet/shower (cloth curtain between) is separated from cabin by a transparent glass door. Sink in cabin. Engineer told us, "Drink lots of water. We make our own, 120 gallons an hour. You cannot outrun us!"
Food is excellent. Leigh is a double treat - divemistress and chef. Our week she was chef and the meals were superb - and she was careful to work around food sensitivities.
Dive sites are mostly 30-40 feet under the boat, variable swim to the wall, then wall to more than 150 feet. Plenty of reef & nurse sharks, stingrays, rare turtles. One each manta & eagle ray! Several times we saw dolphins swimming along with the boat.
Diving ends Friday noon. Usually on liveaboards (this was our 27th) this means the fresh water hoses come out for gear rinsing - but No. Only dipping in filled gear tanks is allowed. I asked permission to use one of the hoses to rinse out my BC - no dice. Tried it from a deck shower and was asked to stop! So the gear comes home a little salty.
Easily accessible from east coast (3 hour nonstop from Newark), if you can do the bunk thing this is an excellent trip.
