The Bay Islands of Honduras are home to large marine life, such as whale sharks, Caribbean reef sharks and bottlenose dolphins. The region is also world-renowned for its wall diving, spectacular wrecks, beautiful shallow reefs, and sea mounts rarely explored by divers. The Roatan Aggressor runs weekly liveaboard cruises to its very best sites, including Utila and Roatan. Honduras has been an Aggressor liveaboard destination since 1989, so the operator knows the area very well.
The Roatan Aggressor is a large and powerful steel hull yacht at 120 ft (36m) long. 18 guests can be accommodated in comfort and privacy onboard. All staterooms are air-conditioned and fitted with private bathrooms, showers and hairdryers. Linens are changed midweek and fresh towels are placed in each stateroom as needed. There are 6 boat crew to attend to guest needs.
A cooked-to-order breakfast starts each day, then buffet lunch and an elegant waiter-served dinner, in addition to fresh mid-morning and mid-afternoon snacks. Beverages are complimentary while onboard. There is an exciting and varied weekly menu, featuring dishes from around the world. These include salads, soups, main courses of fish, seafood, beef or chicken, fresh bread, plenty of fruit and vegetables, and a selection of desserts. As with most Aggressor cruises, the final night is spent at harbor and dinner is taken at a restaurant after an onboard cocktail party.
The spacious air-conditioned saloon features a dining area and a comfy lounge area with TV, and computer station. The upper deck has a large social area with lounge-style seating, deck chairs, shaded wet bar and grill, stereo system and hot tub. Other features of the liveaboard include a complete photo center with digital video and still-photo editing, a satellite phone, an onboard boutique, and a safe to store any guest valuables. Evening entertainment includes diving and fish identification presentations, movies, games and more. There is a small library of books for exchange, as well as fish ID books for reference. A souvenir CD of your cruise will be available.
Up to 5 dives per day are done from the mothership. The stern and platform area are very spacious and the dive deck features individual dive lockers, rinse tanks and a large camera table with low pressure air hoses, and a membrane nitrox system. The boarding ladders were designed for convenience to allow easy entries and exits. Enjoy hot fresh water showers after your dive and dry off with a warm towel. So if you are looking for an exciting Caribbean dive trip on a reputable liveaboard yacht in Honduras, the Roatan Aggressor might be just what you're looking for.

"The liveaboard boat is not small, but the space is not well used: all cabins are at the bottom and most are small or very small. The cabin we got was the smallest cabin I've ever had on any liveaboard. There was just a small drawer big enough for a few t-shirts as the only storage space. I ended up having to keep my luggage on the bottom bed and my clothes and other belongings in it.
The diving was ok enough, fish life was a bit low, soft coral was ok, there was almost no hard coral. Didn't see a single shark outside of a couple of shark feedings (and only about 5 or 6 at that time), and very few bigger fish. The boat says they don't guide dives, but they kind of do, although it's one guide for 14 divers, which made a bit of a mess (too many people on top of one another).
The food was fairly good, the service was ok. There was cell connectivity during 80-90% of the trip." - Marc Merlin, USA, 3 May 2023 ...
