At 135 feet, this newly built vessel has a modern design with 4 decks and plenty of space for relaxation between dives. You'll find a covered sundeck with comfortable seating as well as a Jacuzzi on the top fly deck.  The upper deck houses 2 staterooms with queen bed and 2 with twin / king beds. These cabins all have picture windows. The main deck houses the spacious salon, an indoor dining area and a very large master suite with queen bed & panorama windows. This deck also offers a comfortable exterior salon with plenty of cushioned seating and small tables.

On the lower deck are 6 twin cabins - all fitted with en-suite bathrooms and portholes.

As much of the diving in the Maldives is drift diving, all dives will be made from a a beautiful custom-built diving dhoni (60 feet in length) that is very easy to dive from. It has ample space for divers, their equipment, photography equipment, hot water, a full bathroom and 5 compressors.

Depending on which cruise you choose, a visit to an inhabited island with a 'palm hike' and a barbecue on a desert island may be offered.

Itineraries


With this new and sturdy Maldives vessel, Aggressor has opted to bring you a wealth of new itineraries.

Best of the Maldives offers 7 and 10-nights with 3 to 4 different classic routes that include the areas of: North Male, South Male, North Ari, South Ari, Vaavu and Rasdhoo ... and sometimes Baa Atoll.  You'll have spectacular channel-drift dives, wrecks, pinnacles and world famous night dives.  These routes begin and end in Male, the capital of the Maldives and run year-round. 

Deep South - select dates in February & March : 7-night charters include mostly pelagic fauna. Reef sharks, whale sharks, oceanic mantas, tiger sharks, eagle rays, macro, beautiful overhangs with soft corals, schools of reef fish and hammerheads are "on the menu"..

Southern Hemisphere itinerary - select dates in January, February & March :  7 and 10-night charters covering (depending on which of 3 itineraries you choose) South Male, Vaavu, Meemu, Laamu, Thaa, Huvadhoo, Foammulah and Addu  ... and will include mostly channel dives.  You'll encounter varied marine life ... but the focus is on pelagics, reef sharks, whale sharks, oceanic mantas and occasionally tiger sharks and hammerhead sharks.   

If your itinerary ends in Malé, (last diving day), a complimentary walking tour will be offered in Malé.  Dinner is ashore at a waterfront restaurant and is approximately $35 pp. This is the only meal not included in the price of your trip.


Your cruise logistics


Most itineraries leave from the Hulhumale Lagoon, which is a 15-minute boat ride from the Male International airport. Guests will be met at the airport by a crew member and transferred by water taxi (complimentary) to the yacht at 4 pm.  Cruise start check in is Sunday from 3.30pm  ... (or from 11:00 am weekdays on some itineraries) and all guest must be on board by 5pm.  After boarding, the yacht departs for its night anchorage to prepare for diving the next morning.  Depending on the itinerary, the checkout will be either on Sunday or during the week at 8 am.   If your cruise ends in Male, transportation is provided back to the Male International Airport after breakfast.

For the Southern Hemisphere Itineraries, guests will either board the boat in Male and end in Addu or board in Addu and end in Male. On both outbound and inbound routes a one way domestic flight will be required at GAN International Airport located in Addu Atoll (GAN). There are several daily flights to and from the Malé International Airport / Addu Atoll (GAN).
