Aggressor Adventures Announces New Cocos Island Dive Yacht


If diving the hammerhead shark-filled waters off Cocos Island, Costa Rica is on your bucket list, the folks at Aggressor Adventures have a new liveaboard option for you.

On January 13, 2023, the all-new, 124-foot/38-meter Cocos Island Aggressor will cruise from Puntarenas, Costa Rica to Cocos Island for the first time.

Amenities on the 22-passenger, four-level luxury dive yacht include a sun deck with hot tub, two guests’ lounges, a restaurant with chef-prepared meals, a spacious dive deck and a computer station for editing underwater photos and videos. Eleven spacious staterooms feature private baths and individual climate controls.

Cocos Island trips include an average of 21 dives in the nutrient-rich waters surrounding the lush island. Swift currents and underwater sea mounts attract massive fish schools, giant marble rays, tuna, white tip sharks, Galapagos sharks, and hammerhead sharks.

When conditions allow, the staff shuttles guests to the island for hiking and swimming in the pools of Cocos’ many waterfalls. After the charter’s final dive, the Cocos Island Aggressor is escorted by dolphin and false killer whales for the 342-mile/550-km voyage back to Puntarenas.

According to Aggressor Adventures Chairman and CEO Wayne Brown:

“The Cocos Island Aggressor raises the bar of liveaboard accommodations. We are thrilled to offer dive adventures to Cocos aboard this extraordinary new yacht. Cocos has been an Aggressor Adventures destination since 1988, and many of our clients have experienced the adrenaline rush of diving here. Today, we invite new and returning guests alike to enjoy more exciting adventures with us in Cocos aboard the luxurious new Cocos Island Aggressor.”

Cocos Island National Park was designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1997.
