  Capt. Eddy AndersonMeet Captain Eddy Anderson
Captain Eddy is the proud Captain of the "Queen of The Caribbean"- the Sun Dancer II in Belize. Born and raised in the Bay islands of Honduras, his diving story started a long time ago as a child when he received his first set of snorkeling equipment from one of his sisters. Little did she know that she was lighting a passion candle that perhaps would never burn down. Looking back, Captain Eddy realizes that this was one of the best gifts he ever received.

Captain Eddy has been with the Aggressor Fleet since 1996. He started as a DM/Instructor/Video Pro on the Bay Islands Aggressor II. With additional training he was promoted to Engineer and after more coursework to First Mate. For the last five and half years he has been a Captain. During his tenure he has worked on the Bay Island Aggressor II, III & IV, Utila Aggressor I and the Belize Aggressor III.

  Meet Captain Amanda Bryan 
Amanda is Captain of the Turks & Caicos Aggressor II.  If you had asked Amanda where she saw herself in the future 10 years ago; Captain of the Turks & Caicos Aggressor II is not something that she would have foreseen. Still here she is and enjoying it immensely. Very different from the claims department of an insurance company, of which she was a Claim Manager for several years. 

Amanda started her journey with the fleet as a Dive Instructor.  Under the mentorship and guidance of the Turks & Caicos Aggressors founding captain she received the hands on training and experience needed to pass the comprehensive written and practical exams required to earn a Captains license.   In addition to her maritime credentials, Amanda is also a dive instructor and an outstanding photographer and videographer.
