Red Sea Aggressor IV Begins Operating in March


Aggressor Adventures has announced that the Red Sea Aggressor IV liveaboard vessel, which replaces the Red Sea Aggressor III, will begin operating in March.

On March 4, 2023, the new Red Sea Aggressor IV dive yacht will cast off from Port Ghalib, Egypt for the liveaboard’s seven-day maiden voyage exploring the dive sites of St. John’s Reef, Marsa Shoana, Sataya Reef and Daedalus Reef.

Up to 26 guests will cruise the southern Red Sea aboard the 143-foot/44-meter liveaboard, which features amenities including 13 staterooms, a restaurant serving chef-prepared meals, a dive center with Nitrox fills, multiple open-air lounges with wet bars, two hot tubs and a fly bridge.

All dives will be conducted from three 21-foot/6.4-meter dive tenders.

The yacht’s “St. Johns” route is just one of three southern Egypt itineraries travelers may choose. The second dive program, “Brothers-Daedalus-Elphinstone,” begins at the shark-filled waters of the two Brothers Islands, then moves to the Daedalus Reef. The week culminates with stops at Elphinstone and Sha’ab Maksour with its pristine hard coral gardens.

The third itinerary ventures even farther south beyond Ras Banas. The “Deep South” dive schedule makes stops at Fury Shoal and Habili Orman before reaching its destination — the remote sites of Habili Aly, Habili Gaffar and Dangerous Reef.

All three itineraries provide guests underwater pelagic encounters with sharks, manta rays and dolphins, and up-close views of the Red Sea’s trademark brilliantly colored soft corals.

Aggressor Adventures CEO Wayne Brown says:

“The southern Egyptian Red Sea is a very special place to the Aggressor Adventures® family. It has been an Aggressor destination since 2014 and we are so excited to welcome the new Red Sea Aggressor IV® into our fleet. It’s a spectacular yacht operated by a five-star staff.”

Saturday-to-Saturday Red Sea Aggressor IV adventures start at US$2,699/~€2,485 per person and include scuba diving, snorkeling, onboard accommodations, meals, snacks, soft beverages, beer, wine and service from a professional staff.

The Red Sea Aggressor IV operates from the Port Ghalib, Egypt yacht marina.
