I would like to start off by saying thank you to the entire crew of the Cayman Aggressor IV for an incredible week June 4th thru 11th. The food was excellent, my cabin was always cool and refreshing and the diving was out of this world. This is my fourth Aggressor experience, which all have been amazing. Not once did I have to so much as lift a weight pouch.
