The little known Sultanate of Oman, with its stunning deserts, rugged mountain landscapes, green oases, endless beaches, and friendly people, is one of the Aggressor Fleet’s newest destinations. And the Oman Aggressor offers 7 and 10 night liveaboard diving cruises to 3 distinct and remote regions of the Arabian Sea and Gulf of Oman, with the promise of chance encounters with some giants of the sea.

This large and modern yacht is 148 ft (45m) long. It has a steel hull and is built and for comfort and safety, with all the services to which divers have become accustomed from Aggressor cruises. 22 guests are accommodated in 11 ensuite staterooms with TVs across the 3 decks, and are attended to by the 13 crew members.

The spacious air-conditioned saloon features a dining area and a comfy lounge area to watch TV or chat with fellow passengers. The upper deck has a large social area with lounge-style seating, deck chairs, chaise lounges, and a shaded hot tub. Diving amenities include freshwater rinse showers, camera table, rinse tanks and nitrox. Up to 4 dives per day are done from the 2 large tenders.

There is a highly varied weekly menu, featuring Western style breakfast, and Arabic and international lunches and dinners. These include salads, soups, main courses of fish, seafood, beef or chicken, fresh breads, vegetables, and a selection of desserts. Dinners are served each evening with complimentary local beer and wine. As with all Aggressor safaris, the final night is spent in the port and dinner is taken at a recommended restaurant. So if you are looking for a fascinating and new diving destination on a high quality liveaboard yacht, look no further than the Oman Aggressor.

How to get there: Many major airlines fly to Oman: Emirates, Oman Air, Qatar Airways, United Airlines, Delta, Lufthansa, Swiss and British Airways. Due to airline schedules, we highly recommend arriving at least 1 day prior to your liveaboard departure and staying at the host hotel.
- For Al Mouj Marina - the local airport is Muscat Airport (MCT). The host hotel is Grand Millennium Hotel (60 minutes from the airport). Transportation can be arranged with the Oman Aggressor from the host hotel to board the boat, and to depart the boat for the host hotel or Muscat Airport.
- For Khasab Port Marina - the local airport is Khasab Airport (KHS). The host hotel is Atana Khasab Hotel (15 minutes from the airport). Transportation can be arranged with the Oman Aggressor from the host hotel to board the boat, and to depart the boat for the host hotel or Khasab Airport.
- For Juweira Boutique Hotel Marina - the local airport is Salalah Airport (SLL). The host hotel is Juweira Boutique Hotel (30 minutes from the airport). Transportation can be arranged with the Oman Aggressor to depart the boat for Salalah Airport. It is not necessary to arrange transport from the host hotel to the marina because the marina is inside the hotel.
It is also possible to fly to Dubai (DXB) and then travel by road. From Dubai International Airport to each departure point is: Khasab 2½ hours, Muscat 4½ hours, Salalah 11½ hours.

Arrival/Boarding/Departure: Boarding starts at 3 pm and the boat departs on the following morning. The liveaboard boat returns to the pier after lunch time on the penultimate day, with checkout being at 8 am. Reservations are required for all transfers at least 14 days in advance. Transportation costs will be collected onboard the yacht at the end of the trip.

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.

Diving Environment: Oman offers pristine coral reefs, stunning deserts, rugged mountain landscapes, green oases, endless beaches, and friendly people for a liveaboard scuba diving trip. You could explore the deep fjords of Musandam (Gulf of Oman), the underwater world at the Daymaniyat Islands off the coast of Muscat, and the Hallaniyat Islands in southern Oman (Arabian Sea), as well as untouched and undiscovered reefs and wrecks.

The seas of Oman are full of fascinating life - whale sharks, humpback whales, sperm whales, dolphins, manta rays, sharks, turtles, mobula rays, mola mola, king mackerel, tuna, as well as moray eels, angelfish, stingrays, lobster and crayfish, and nudibranchs. More than 1,000 different types of fish and shellfish are home in the Arabian Sea and Gulf of Oman. Strict fishing conditions and large marine parks ensure that this valuable treasure is protected.

All dives are done from the yacht and two 22 ft (7m) long motorised tenders. The visibility in Oman can change very quickly from 15-100 ft (5-30m). The water temperature varies from 71-80°F, 22-25°C due to thermoclines so a 5 to 7 mm full length wetsuit is recommended.

Non-diver rate: US$ 200 off the full published price.

Single supplement (if you do not want to share accommodation): This is optional - single travelers may choose to share a cabin or pay a supplement of 65% of the normal published price.

Dive clubs and group discounts: Pay for 9 guests, and 2 additional person can join the cruise in a Deluxe Stateroom free of charge (total 11 or more guests). Full charter rate equivalent to: Pay for 18 guests and 4 additional persons can join the cruise in a deluxe Stateroom free of charge (22 guests)

Whole boat charter rate (per night): US$ 7 826 per night.
