About Jardines Aggressor 1

The Jardines Aggressor 1 opens up an exciting new diving destination - Cuba. Now as part of the Cuba Travel Program you can explore this magical island both above and below the water. Your holiday to Cuba not only includes 7 nights on board the excellent Jardines Aggressor 1, diving the pristine Jardines de la Reina National Park, but also 2 action packed nights in Havana. With Aggressor excellence, attention to detail and customer service throughout your trip, the time has come to dive Cuba. Don't delay!

There are 10 cabins on the Jardines Aggressor, sleeping 20 people. There are 2 master cabins on the main deck with picture windows, with beds that can be arranged as either a twin or queen double. Downstairs in the lower deck are the 8 deluxe cabins - these have a twin bed arrangement. Each cabin has its own private bathroom with a toilet and shower. All have air conditioning. The Jardines Aggressor 1 has a central safe for any personal items that you wish to lock away during your cruise.

The Aggressor fleet has earned its reputation for excellence and on board comfort. The menu is always popular! Start your day with a hot breakfast, tropical fruit and cereal. Lunches are served buffet style in the main deck saloon. And then in the evening enjoy the freshly prepared table service. The homemade deserts are a must! And of course, all drinks are included in your package on board the liveaboard. Please note: whilst every effort is made, certain special dietary and beverage requests may not be available due to the remote nature of this location.

Between dives there is plenty of relaxing space. On the main deck you find a roomy, air conditioned salon. Ideal for presentations! The dive deck is also n this level, with large storage lockers for each diver and space to kit up. Nitrox is available but must be prepaid - please talk to your travel consultant at the time of booking.
