Throughout the week aboard the FIJI AGGRESSOR™ guests will depart Suva to explore the reefs, bommies and walls of Nigali Pass, Wakaya, and the Kadavu islands. Known as the soft coral capital, the brilliant colors on display will dazzle even the most experienced divers and photographers. Drift dives with eagle rays, mantas, turtles, sharks and giant groupers are also on the itinerary.
Clownfish, pygmy seahorses, ornate ghost pipefish, and a multitude of nudibranchs bring smiles to every dive! With direct flights from several major cities worldwide, it is an easy destination to add to your dive log.
To top off the exiting diving and experience some of Fiji’s local culture, a visit to a Fijian village on one of the remote islands is arranged including a Kava ceremony and warrior dance. As all guests are required to wear a traditional sulu (sarong, lava lava or wrap) when visiting the village, the Fiji Aggressor will provide you with one and to keep complimentary or you can bring your own.
The FIJI AGGRESSOR™ appeals to those discriminating divers who prefer a smaller group and is perfectly suited for Fiji and the diving itinerary. All indoor areas are air-conditioned and each of the guest cabins feature ensuite facilities. The beautifully appointed salon has ample room for divers to view their photos and videos or to enjoy a movie on the entertainment system. The sundeck features covered and uncovered lounging and is a perfect place to relax with a book during surface intervals.

We recommend you plan to arrive 1 day prior to departure and stay at the Novotel Hotel as the boat is docked beside the hotel. Other recommended hotels in Suva are the Grand Pacific Hotel and the Holiday Inn. Some guests dive in the Beqa/Pacific Harbour area either prior to, or after their Fiji Aggressor trip; we recommend you stay at The Pearl Hotel in Pacific Harbour.
Visitors must have a current passport, adequate funds to support themselves, and a return airline ticket. US citizens require a passport that must be valid for 6 months from date of entry. It is the travelers’ responsibility to ensure they have the proper visa to travel into each country on his or her itinerary as well as for re-entry and return to their country. Since regulations vary by country, contact your consulate or embassy of your country for the requirement.
The Fiji Aggressor operates out of Suva, Fiji. A group transfer from the airport to the FIJI AGGRESSOR™ is provided to guests flying into Suva Nausori Airport (SUV) on the scheduled day of embarkation. This complimentary transfer to the yacht is scheduled between 6 am-8 am and takes approximately 45 minutes. After dropping off your luggage at the boat we suggest that you make your way to the Novotel Hotel, located next to where the yacht docks, and relax there until you are asked to board by a member of the yacht's crew. This will be any time after 12 noon.
If you are arriving in Suva on a later flight and unable to join the group transfer, then you will need to take a taxi to the FIJI AGGRESSOR™ which docks next to the Novotel Hotel. If you are already in Suva, please make your way to the FIJI AGGRESSOR™ anytime after 12 pm. The FIJI AGGRESSOR™ typically sails immediately. Check out is Saturday morning at 7:30 am.
