The Maldives Aggressor liveaboard

Construction was completed in 2009 so you can expect no signs of wear and tear on this sleek vessel which consists of 10 en-suite staterooms, which are either twin or double share. Unusually for an Aggressor liveaboard, this Maldives vessel can also go under sail so it combines the practicality of an Aggressor-style dive liveaboard with the sailing tradition of the archipelago. All diving is done from a traditional-style dhoni, meaning noise and equipment is kept off the mother ship.

Maldives diving cruises run from Sunday to Sunday and will, depending on prevailing conditions, take in the best of Ari Atoll, North and South Male atolls and Felidhoo Atoll. As is normal with the Aggressor fleet, guests return on the Saturday afternoon to dine on dry land before spending the final night on board.
