Magical Experience with Mantas

Amazing experience onboard with the team of the Maldives Aggressor. The boat was well maintained, the cabins spacious and the service thoughtful and friendly. The dives were well planned and underwater, the dive masters took care of the guests in terms of spotting creatures big and small and ensured all guests had a wonderful and safe time. The diving was very good with a variety of pelegics including manta rays, eagle rays, reef sharks spotted on nearly every dive as well as plenty of colorful reef fish of different varieties. A magical exprience with plenty of highlights that guests will remember for a long time!

The most attentive Staff and Dive Instructors we have ever met!

Seeing a massive whale shark, seeing tons of manta rays, sting rays, eagle rays, nerf sharks, white, black and silver tip sharks. Some so close they brush up against you! Dolphins and Eagle Rays jumping out of the water! Also, meeting some of the nicest people we’ve ever come across (Divers and Staff). Food was pleantiful and you didn’t have to ever worry about going hungry. Eat. Sleep. Dive. Literally. Amazing!! By the way - we absolutely loved diving with Ruslan and Jérémie. Wow! Extremely knowledgeable and they took such good care of us underwater. They truly wanted everyone to have the best dive ever, Every Single Dive.

Staff worked hard to make sure we saw the premier marine life. The food was only ok, I wish they cooked more local cuisines. When they did, the food tasted much better than the continental fare. The boat is a little noisy, and it's showing it's age. But nonetheless it gets you to the diving!

We saw so many mantas and other rays (during day and night), all kinds of sharks, incl. wale sharks and octopoi! We did not expect to actually see so much! The channels are really fun! For rather inexperienced divers with now 41 dives, we felt always safe and really well taken care of.

Disappointing and disrespectful treatment

We were very disappointed with our experience on the Maldives liveaboard 2. Our trip started off as expected but it became quite clear that the operators of both the boat and the Aggressor company as a whole have little respect for their guest or the environment. We had 3 big issues with this trip: 1. There was a significant amount of oil leaking from the boat the entire week (except conveniently the first and last day when docked at the port in Male). The crew dumped the boats garbage, including plastic bags in to the water 2. Several of the guest had covid-19 which was not discovered until the final night on the boat (many more were positive on arrival home). The crew denied those individuals their PCR results because it linked the boat to a positive case which would require them to quarantine (they carried on with the next liveaboard despite Covid-19 clearly spreading through the boat). The Covid positive guests were sent to a hotel to quarantine and were told representatives of the boat were working with the government to facilitate the quarantine which all turned out to be a lie to keep the positive cases hidden. None of the required protocols mandated by the Maldivian government were followed. The result was additional stress and significant financial loss for those individuals. 3. The above experiences were very disappointing in themselves but upon messaging multiple individuals within the aggressors company as well as providing ample evidence of the situation, we have not been provided with any support, acknowledgement of the problem or any indication that they will change any of their practices in the future (it has been 6 weeks since we have brought up our concerns). I would highly recommend not booking a liveaboard with this company.

A good surprise for us was that there was a smaller than expected group size which made things more personable. Everyone on board made sure we were comfortable and well fed. Being the last voyage of the season, we were still treated to unforgettable dives. Overall, it was a very enjoyable trip.
