About Cayman Aggressor

The excellent visibility and warm year round waters have made the Caymans a popular destination for scuba divers looking to experience all that the Caribbean has to offer. But it also boasts so much more! Make this your next liveaboard holiday and you will not be disappointed. Why dive only 1 island when you can sail all 3 in one single liveaboard trip? From the decks of our luxury liveaboard, the Cayman Aggressor, wall and wreck dives await you. Swim over vibrant corals and sponges as you get up close to eagle rays, southern sting rays, turtles and schooling fish. The waters are nearly always calm, making this an ideal Caribbean holiday for newer divers or non divers who don't want to miss the fun. And with the attentive crew to hand, your every whim is met on your dream diving holiday.

The Cayman Aggressor sleeps 18 guests in total. There are 8 deluxe cabins - 6 deluxe cabins have a double bed with bunk above and there are 2 deluxe cabins which have standard twin beds (these two cabins share a bathroom). Upgrade to the master cabin for a larger queen size double bed. With the exception of the 2 twin deluxe cabins, all the rest have a private en suite and individual air con. Many cabins have a hairdryer supplied. Please do ask at the time of booking if you have a specific cabin request.

The saloon is generous with a modern entertainment system and email facility. The food is a mixture of international cuisine with some local tasters and freshly made snacks area available throughout the day. The sun deck is a popular hang out between dives where you can enjoy the sun or shade. Or grab a kayak and enjoy exploring. Come sun down, the bar area becomes the hub as your fellow divers trade tales. The dive platform itself is huge with freshwater showers, kit lockers and a camera area. Why not borrow one of the onboard DPVs for your next dive?

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.
