Wayne B. Brown, Chairman and CEO
As Chairman and CEO, one of the most important parts of the business is to travel to Aggressor Fleet destinations to ensure we are continuing to deliver the safety, quality and personal service that we have built our reputation on. These visits also allow me to not only spend time with all the guests but to feed my love for diving and photography as well.

Some of our busiest times are when we launch a new destination. From training the crew to ensuring all the expected amenities are in place, we try to ensure a smooth start to every destination. Fortunately for us, we get lots of practice with all the new destinations we have been adding and the ones we are in process of adding now! Hope to see you on my next dive charter!


Raja Ampat, Indonesia - January, 2016

Raja Ampat, or the Four Kings, is an archipelago comprising over 1,500 small islands, cays, and shoals surrounding the four main islands of Misool, Salawati, Batanta, and Waigeo. The Raja Ampat archipelago is the part of Coral Triangle which contains the richest marine biodiversity on earth.

The Raja Ampat Aggressor is a steel 100-foot purpose built LiveAboard that accommodates 16 guests and 13 staff.

On arrival we were greeted by the friendly Indonesian staff and Michal, our Cruise Director, an expat from Poland who has been in Indonesia for the past 8 years. After we get settled in our cabins and our gear setup and checked, we enjoy welcome drinks and a lunch buffet before Michal presents his safety and charter briefing.

The diving is as diverse as advertised. During our charter, we will see the cutest pygmy seahorses on most sites, plenty of colorful nudibranchs, sharks, Manta Rays and everything in between! We saw everything on everyone’s Raja Ampat bucket list and then some!

Our Indonesian dive guides were uncanny in how they could spot and find the most unusual critters hiding in the most unusual places on every dive. Our dive sites were very diverse ranging from fully submerged sea mounds to small islands that spread out below the surface like giant icebergs to piers and bays.

Each dive offered a unique experience where some species of fish and critters are more likely to be found like the walking shark, the blue-ringed octopus or graceful mantas.

The Raja Ampat Aggressor offers four itineraries throughout the year including Raja Ampat, Ambon, Triton Bay and Cenderawasih Bay where you encounter multiple whale sharks filter feeding on the krill surrounding the local fishing boats so there are just a few of the excuses we need to head back!
