Maldives Aggressor

Diving Squad Rating:



Maldives Aggressor makes more voyages to the Maldives’ south and deep south regions than any other liveaboard. 

The Maldives deep south’ is very much off the beaten track and has more species of shark than anywhere else in the country as well as mola mola and black oceanic manta rays!

An exceptionally large (41 meter long!) yacht, the Maldives Aggressor has plenty of spacious common areas as well as some excellent cabin options. 

Great for: Deep South Routes, South Routes, Central Routes, Jacuzzi, Posh Cabins, Huge Indoor Saloon. 

Length of Trips: 7 – 10 Nights

Max No. of Guests: 22

Operates: All Year


Maldives Aggressor operates three routes: 

  • Best of Maldives: Explores the Maldives’ popular and well known central region. 7 – 10 Nights.


  • Southern Hemisphere: The 7 night version of this explores the south & deep south Maldives.  The 10 night version covers the south & deep south plus some of the central Maldives. 7 – 10 nights.


  • Deep South: Despite the name, this trip actually covers the central and south regions, not the deep south. 7 nights

Although all of the Maldives Aggressor trips are highly rated, the “southern hemisphere” trip is particularly popular as it provides the opportunity to escape the more crowded central region dive sites and witness a dozen different shark species! 

Guests only require their open water certification and no extra logged dives for all trips; however you’ll need to be confident diving in currents and on deep dives and may be asked to sit out some dives anyway. 

That said, you can hire a private dive guide and even complete scuba diving courses throughout your trip!

Diving amenities include a large swim platform with personal gear lockers, air/nitrox fill stations, rinse tanks, three-tier camera table with low pressure air hoses and 2 warm, freshwater showers. 

The spacious and well lit indoor salon, extends into the huge dining room where one can enjoy an array of mouth watering local and American cuisine 

The outdoor lounge features a jacuzzi, partial shading and a seated lounge area, complete with a bar

There’s also a small sundeck but with space for just four sun loungers it is the only part of the Maldives Aggressor that feels a little small! (If you want a liveaboard with a huge sundeck, check out Adora). 

However, this is made up for by the 11 lavish stateroom cabins, which are far from small, being equipped with private bathroom and shower, closet, port window, individual climate control and TV/DVD. 

With a friendly and professional crew, stylish and spacious common areas and superb dive itineraries, Maldives Aggressor is a truly excellent liveaboard and one of our favourite options of all time.

It’s also the very best option to go on for discovering the Maldives’ deep south as it runs the most frequent trips there and subsequently the crew are highly familiar with the region.

"We saw so many mantas and other rays (during day and night), all kinds of sharks, incl. wale sharks and octopoi! We did not expect to actually see so much! The channels are really fun! For rather inexperienced divers with now 41 dives, we felt always safe and really well taken care of."!
