I would like to start off by saying thank you to the entire crew of the Cayman Aggressor IV for an incredible week June 4th thru 11th. The food was excellent, my cabin was always cool and refreshing and the diving was out of this world. This is my fourth Aggressor experience, which all have been amazing. Not once did I have to so much as lift a weight pouch.

Covid Information for Cayman Aggressor

INFORMATION PROVIDED BY AGGRESSOR FLEET

Last Updated: 19APR 2022

Each of our destinations that are open stringently follow the local Covid-19 requirements and protocols for our adventures. We also build on these with Clean, Refresh and Sanitize programs. All of our staff undergo frequent temperature checks and health monitoring. While we encourage all of our staff to get a vaccination against Covid-19 when available, it is a very personal choice that we respect. This same standard is applied to our guests that are travelling with us since our first destination reopened in July of 2020.
CEO Wayne Brown
Chairman & CEO


Protocols for a Suspected Case of COVID-19

Each Aggressor Adventure destination has established a local professional medical support team to advise them should a staff member or guest become ill and develop a fever or other symptoms. Temperatures of staff are taken twice daily. Once onboard, we instruct guests to self-monitor and report to the Captain if they develop a fever or other symptoms. We ask you to be honest and tell us if there have been any changes that could compromise your health or others If fever or other symptoms are detected on board, the destination will contact their local medical support team for a consultation. If possible, transportation is arranged for the patient to visit the medical facility for evaluation. While awaiting transport to be organized, the guest will be asked to self-isolate in their stateroom. If the yacht is further offshore, medical support provides a remote consultation, and the guest will be instructed to self-isolate in their stateroom for the remainder of their trip or until the evacuation is possible. If appropriate, the roommate will move to alternate accommodations. Meals will be brought to the patient's room. Linens are cleaned (in isolation) daily, along with cleaning and sterilizing the room.
The guest will absorb the costs of evacuation and land accommodations and medical services. We highly recommend that you review your travel / medical insurance for coronavirus coverage should this occur. Keep in mind that fever alone is not a suspected Covid-19 case.
