The BVI Aggressor is a 110 ft (34m) motor yacht which cruises around the best dive sites of the British Virgin Islands, renowned for its plethora of great wreck dives. Throughout the week you will visit several of the regions, mainly the outer islands of Norman, Peter, Salt, Cooper and Virgin Gorda. The itinerary is entirely dependent on the winds and weather.

This steel-hulled British Virgin Islands liveaboard accommodates a maximum of 20 guests in comfort and style. The spacious air conditioned lounge, complete with full entertainment system, and the dedicated dining room are the main social focal points on board. However, you can also relax on the sun deck which comes complete with sun chairs and sun loungers, a hot tub, a music system, shaded wet bar and grill. A further relaxation spot is the covered cocktail deck on the upper deck. There is no shortage of comfortable hang-out spaces on this liveaboard.

You can enjoy the assortment of music, games and movies on board, as well as shore excursions to cays and beaches.

Diving facilities include nitrox, a charging station and a large camera table with low pressure hoses for your camera and video equipment, 2 hot fresh water showers on the dive deck, and individual guest storage spaces. All dives are made from 2 large custom-built 25 ft. dive tenders, each outfitted with a 300 HP Suzuki motor, custom tank racks and ladders for easy exit.

Occasionally meals may be served al fresco on the sundeck. As with all Aggressors, you are free to dine in an on-shore location of your own choice on the final evening.

Keeping you well-fed and entertained, both above and below the water, the BVI Aggressor delivers a very comfortable, high quality Caribbean liveaboard adventure.

Most visitors arrive via the international airport in San Juan, Puerto Rico (code: SJU). There are direct flights to North, Central and South America, and several countries in the Caribbean and Europe. From San Juan, you can board a local flight (30-40 minutes) to Terrence B. Lettsome Airport (EIS) in BVI. These flights are operated by Air Sunshine, Cape Air and Seabourne Airlines. Alternatively you can fly in to St. Thomas (code: STT) in the US Virgin Islands and then take a regular public ferry to Tortola (1 hour), or fly in via St. Croix, or St. Maarten/St. Martin.
Arrival/Boarding/Departure: BVI Aggressor guests will embark and disembark at the host property, Village Cay Hotel & Marina in Road Town, Tortola, the BVI capital and main shopping area. Guests arriving between 11:30 am - 5 pm on the Saturday will be greeted at the airport by a BVI Aggressor representative who will assist with luggage and getting a taxi at the taxi stand. BVI regulations only allow tourists to be picked up from the airport by registered taxis. It is approximately 30 minutes from the airport to the dock. All guests must be onboard by 5 pm for port departure. We highly recommend arriving the day before and staying at the host hotel.
The last dive of the trip will be at around 12.00 noon on the Friday. Disembarkation is at 8 am on the following Saturday. Please wait at least 18 hours before flying after diving.

Diving Environment: The turquoise waters of the British Virgin Islands are home to beautiful coral gardens, many shipwrecks, seamounts, caverns, caves, canyons and boulder formations. Divers will find barracuda, turtles. eagle rays, southern stingrays, nurse sharks. schools of jacks, African pompano, tarpon, angelfish, triggerfish, lobsters, snake and moray eels, as well as scores of colorful reef fish.
The RMS Rhone shipwreck is located at Salt Island and is known as one of the best wreck dives in the world. The Rhone was a 310 foot (95m) long, iron-hulled steamship that slammed in to a rock during a hurricane in 1867 and broke into 2 sections - the stern rests at a depth of 35 feet (10m) and the bow lies at 80 feet (25m). Nearly every surface of the ship is covered in a kaleidoscope of corals. Divers will see its massive bronze propeller, drive shaft and 100-pound wrenches. Numerous artifacts include black-and-white tiles, silver teaspoons, glass and metalworks. Coral gardens, cleaning stations and nurseries fill the ship’s holds. Schools of yellowtail snapper, jacks, grunts, and tarpon can be found here. Macro life includes arrow carbs, shrimps, lobsters and octopus. Night dives can be especially fantastic on the Rhone.
Water temperature ranges from 76-84°F (25-29°C). A 3 mm wetsuit is recommended, although some might prefer a 5 mm in January/February.
