Dear Aggressor Team,

"I have just returned from the fam trip on the maiden voyage of the Red Sea Aggressor with Tom Gebhardt."  . . . "Eleven of the group visited Luxor prior to boarding the boat and that is a side trip I would highly recommend. We were told by our tour guide that we were the first American group that had visited Luxor in 3 years. We felt very safe at all times and I will be happy to serve as a reference if any potential visitors have questions about safety for land trip. 

The crew on the boat was great and worked hard to accommodate everyone. I had some equipment issues upon arrival with my regulator and David Patterson did a great job or working with me to sort out all the problems so I was comfortable diving with my equipment. He did a wonderful job of working with the guest and crew to make the trip great for all divers. Our charter went to St John's Reef and this was not originally planned for a 7 day charter. The diving at St John's was " as good as it gets". I would highly recommend making this part of all 7 day charters if possible . This was a great treat I and I so appreciate having the opportunity to dive St John's as part of this experience. We also had the chance to snorkel with  a pod of 17 dolphins on this charter. That was truly a magical experience. 

Tom Gebhardt did a great job of organizing our fam and was a pleasure to be with on the boat and the side trip to Luxor. Marc Home was onboard the charter and he brought a lot of fun to the group! All of the dive staff and crew went above and beyond to help us on the dive deck and while on the boat.

I don't think I have seen such clear water with so much color on the reefs in my 25 year dive career.  It was a pleasure to be on the charter and experience a new destination with such style.

I look forward to returning in the future with an ISAM group. Hats off to all for a great maiden charter!"

Sincerely,
Bridget T.
