Aside from the emergency on board for which the company was totally unprepared, despite making us buy extra insurance to cover emergencies, THE CREW WAS PUTTING NITROX IN THE TANKS OF DIVERS WHO WERE NOT NITROX CERTIFIED WITHOUT TELLING THEM! They did so repeatedly and...More

Fantastic trip on MV Argo to Cocos Island. Manuelita and Alcyone favorite dive sites this trip. Wonderful seeing schools upon schools of hammerheads. So majestic. Loved the entire ambiance of the ship. The excellent service with a smile, the amazing food, the crew camaraderie, safety...More

Granted, expectations were really high, both for the service and the diving, so I guess some level of frustration is almost certain. However, I never expected to have just an ok trip, both from a diving and from a customer service standpoint. When you cruise...More

Kelley (18) and I just got back from a fantastic 12-day trip on Aggressor 2. We traveled to Cocos Island - Coast Rica to get on a 210’ live-aboard ship and go diving. We did 24 dives over 7 days, with 36-hrs each way to...More

Hi, As mentioned above there are no unguided dives with Aggressor at least. You go down with a group and go up with the group. You get an SMB and GPS locator at the beginning of the trip. I was there in december, we only had... More
