Aggressor Launches Their New Brand Floating Resort in the Red Sea


New to the Aggressor Fleet is the “Floating Resort” with its debut in the Red Sea.

The idea is to partner with a land-based resort to offer additional actives outside of scuba diving. This is a great way to explore the dive destinations divers love so much as well as tie in land activities like a visit to the bazaar or the ruins.

Hurghada, Egypt is the home for the world’s first “Floating Resort” that launches in March 2023.

The boat hosts 32 guest for 8 days/7-nights (Saturday to Saturday) in the Red Sea. Pricing is US$699 (~€716) and includes accommodations, all meals as well as beer and wine.

Activities are arranged a la carte. Some of the optional water activities include two scuba dives/snorkeling trips ($3,250/~€3,273); Parasailing ($40/~40.28), Banana Boat Rides ($10/~€10.07), or a Private Island Package day trip ($40/~€40.28 to $60/~€60.43).

Another new addition is the BVI Aggressor in the British Virgin Islands which offers a combo of wreck and reef diving. The pristine waters are home to stingrays, sharks, turtles and wrecks like the Fearless, the sister ship of Jacques-Ives Cousteau’s Calypso.

Due to its protected location in the Caribbean, the weather is nice and offers year-round diving. There is a choice of cabins all with furnished storage space, AC and ensuite bathrooms. The trip is 8 days/7 nights for $3,295 (~€3,378).

Aggressor Adventures reservations can be made online at aggressor.com, email at  info@aggressor.com, or by calling +800-348-2628 or +1-706-993-2531.
