The Kona Aggressor II is a 79ft (24m) catamaran liveaboard, built and powered for comfort, safety and stability and certified by the U.S. Coast Guard. Hawaii has been an Aggressor destination since 1989 so you can be sure you are diving with experts in the area on your 7 night trip around Kona Island. With a maximum of only 14 guests on board you can also expect plenty of personal attention from the 6 crew.

The Kona Aggressor II has a spacious saloon and a sun deck with shading, chaise longues and deck chairs, bar and grill. Diving amenities include freshwater rinse showers, camera tables, and nitrox. The sun deck features a moon deck bar with seating, lounge and deck chairs, stereo and CD player, shaded wet bar and grill. This is a great place to watch the changing, rugged coastline of Kona Island.

You will awaken to fresh fruits, hot entrees, cereals and juices. Lunches are buffet-style, featuring hot soups, salads and sandwiches and/or entrees. Dinners are served each evening with complimentary local beer and wine. They include salads, vegetables, seafood, beef or chicken with a fresh homemade dessert. As with all Aggressors, the last night is spent in the port and dinner is enjoyed at a recommended restaurant. If you want to dive Hawaii with the experts in the safety and comfort of a high quality liveaboard trip then Kona Aggressor II is the one for you.

The liveaboard boat returns to the pier after lunchtime on Friday, with checkout being Saturday morning at 8:00 hrs. You will be assisted with transfers to Kona airport or nearby hotels. The Friday evening meal is taken at a local restaurant and is not included in the price.
The last dive of the cruise will be at around 12 noon on the second last day of the trip. Please wait at least 18 hours before flying after diving.

Sunday through Thursday are unlimited days of diving, with a night dive each day, and half day of diving on Friday. All dives are from the liveaboard mothership. The topside scenery includes lava flows and non-divers will enjoy many great snorkeling sites.

You will encounter many indigenous species including butterflyfish and angelfish, as well as manta rays, green turtles, spinner dolphins, Hawaiian lionfish, frogfish and possibly migrating humpback whales from November through February.
