One of 2 liveaboards representing the Aggressor fleet in Cocos Island is the Okeanos Aggressor I. This 113 ft (33m) steel-hulled motor yacht is built tough, perfect for the type of remote, pioneering diving cruise that Cocos Island liveaboards promise.

Up to a maximum of 22 divers are accommodated in 10 en-suite cabins with personal TV and USB/HDMI ports spread throughout the upper and lower decks. Facilities include an air-conditioned saloon and restaurant on the main deck as well as plenty of deck space for soaking up the sun's rays (although these can be rare in rainy season). The lounge is equipped with TV and music system which helps to pass the time during the crossings. For those that enjoy a glass or two after a day's scuba diving, complimentary beer and wine are also included in the price of this Cocos Island liveaboard.

English and Spanish are both spoken on board, nitrox is available, and there is a rinse tank and camera table for cameras on the spacious dive deck. The dive deck also has a toilet and 3 fresh water showers. There is also a saloon computer for image editing. Safety measures include personal EPIRBs for diving and an on-board defibrillator. The Okeanos Aggressor I intends to provide a safe and professional environment in which to enjoy the amazing liveaboard diving destination of Cocos Island.
