About Turks and Caicos Aggressor

Looking for a special kind of diving holiday in the Caribbean? Then why not take a closer look at Turks & Caicos. Turks & Caicos are made up of 40 islands lying to the west of the Caribbean but as only 8 are inhabited, there are some magnificent dive sites waiting to be explored far from the madding crowd. With such a glorious range of dive sites to visit, surely the only way to travel is on board our luxurious liveaboard the Turks & Caicos Aggressor. Sail between the endless cay's and islands in complete comfort, breaking up your day only to dive. Diving in Turks & Caicos is one of the Caribbean's best kept secrets - visit it before the secret gets out!

The Turks & Caicos Aggressor sleeps 18 guests in a range of well appointed cabins. There are 2 twin rooms with a bunk arrangement in the lower deck. There are then 6 deluxe cabins which have a lower double bed with a single bunk above. If you fancy a bit more space then why not book the master cabin which has a queen double bed. All cabins have their own en suite bathrooms, individual AC and a hair dryer. Please do remember to ask at the time of booking if you have a specific cabin request.

As you would expect from an Aggressor boat, no creature comfort has been forgotten. The saloon is large with all the entertainment kit you could need. A computer station is onboard for emails (local charge) and checking your photos. At the end of the day put your feet up with a sundowner at the wet bar. The food is served up in the dining area and freshly made each day on board. The sun deck has shady and sunny spots so everyone can relax in peace between dives. The dive deck is well laid out, giving everyone the space they need. The camera table has stowage and space to sort out your rig before splashing off the boat into a watery wonderland.

Just wanted to let you know what a fantastic week I had onboard the Aggressor last week. A total bucket list journey, with some lovely people, and some utterly amazing memories. Very very humbling to be in the water with these spectacular animals.

T&C Aggressor II has an amazing crew and it’s a lovely vessel catering for every divers needs. The diving is suitable for divers of all experience levels and if you want to get up close and personal with sharks – this itinerary is perfect. The sharks come thick and fast between 10-20m, so you don’t even need to go deep. An action packed week - Highly recommended.
