The brand new 41-meter (135-foot) Philippines Agggressor sleeps 24 guests in 12 cabins. Her Philippine Islands itineraries include trips to the best of Visayas & Tubbataha.
A word from Dom: "The newest Aggressor liveaboards impress me in terms of their sheer space & their light, airy atmosphere. This is the latest entry into the fleet & perhaps the best of the lot. Her styling is simple & tasteful ... and her itineraries are varied and comprehensive. She's just recently begun operation but I have no doubt about recommending her to any diver." ... Dominick Macan

For most Visayas trips your airport will be Cebu (CEB). For the trips which begin or end in Dumaguete, you will fly in and out of different airports - Cebu (CEB) for one end of the tirp & Dumaguete (DGT) for the other end of the trip. For Tubbataha trips, your arrival & departure airport will be Puerto Princessa (PPS). Many major airlines fly into the Philippines including: Korean Air, Cathay Pacific, Delta and Philippine Airlines.
You will be met at the airport at 4 pm on the departure date by a staff member of the Aggressor and transferred to the yacht. We strongly recommend, however, arriving at least one day earlier to make sure you're rested & have all your bags. We can recommend options for first night and extended stays.
All guests must be on board by 6 pm for the yacht briefings, dinner, then departure for the first night's anchorage. Your first dive will be the following morning.
