It comes down to diving 4 or 5 times a day or diving twice with the night life of Cozumel.

Both are excellent trips and I’ve done both the Bahamas and Cozumel many times, hopefully you do too!

One note on CZM, those prices on the cabs are for the cab, not per person. BlueXTAsea is always complaining that cabs won’t pick up locals because Americans hand the driver $5 bucks each and he drives off smiling ear to ear :)

I’m sure you will enjoy either trip.

Good luck,

It’s also two different styles of diving.....in CZM on the day boat you will get two dives, it will drop you off at one end of the reef and you will leisurely drift in 2-3 knot current along the reef and they will pick you up an hour later at you egress point. This can be a bit difficult for photography unless you slip down behind structures/coral heads to get out of the current.

On the Aggressor you’ll dive from the anchored boat (4 day dives + 1 night) and you must return to the same spot you entered the water. They will move the boat usually after dive #2 in the morning and do dives 3, 4 & 5 from the second anchor of the day. After the night dive they will move the boat away from the reefs out to deeper waters to anchor for the night (where the sea can get a bit rough sometimes).
