Part of the well known Aggressor fleet, you are guaranteed a luxury cruise on the North Sulawesi Aggressor. In an area previously unconquered by quality liveaboards, the Aggressor stands alone in providing international levels of service and safety allowing guests to comfortably dive some of Indonesia's most incredible sites.
Departing every Saturday, this is a real divers boat, with up to 5 dives per day. This includes some fantastic night dives in the muck-dive heaven of the Lembeh Strait, where you will see more unusual critters than you thought possible, and the more remote Bangka island off the northern tip of Sulawesi, a rich, colourful and unspoilt paradise.
This boat has it all - fully air conditioned, comfortable cabins, nitrox, E6 film processing, digital photo editing, email service, a hot tub, great food and a very experienced crew. The boat is very well set up for photographers and offers everyone the liveaboard cruise of a lifetime.
As a US franchise, The North Sulawesi Aggressor is designed to showcase the finest diving in Indonesia yet still offer the service levels expected of its demanding clientele. The result? Truly great diving on a world class liveaboard.
