Every Week, Shark Week

There are two kinds of divers; those that love diving with sharks and those that haven’t dived with them yet.


Whichever one YOU are, we’ve got the Adventure of a Lifetime® waiting for you. Whether you seek the thrill of cage-diving with great white sharks or the serenity of slipping into the water next to the largest fish in the ocean, the whale shark, or witnessing a massive school of hammerhead sharks glide by, or just diving the world’s most pristine coral reefs complete with their apex predators, we’ve got sharks! And at Aggressor Adventures, because we love sharks too, our experienced and knowledgeable staff assures we always dive with them respectfully and sustainably.
