This was our second time diving with the Aggressor Fleet and it was
excellent. The Aggressor III is the smaller of the two liveaboards they
operate out of Suva, Fiji. We did get to tour the large Fiji Aggressor II
and the amenities seemed nice (hot tub, larger salon, large lounge on upper
deck, public head down by dive deck, ...) but we thought the Aggressor III
in it's coziness was perfectly fine. The rooms were larger - especially the
head - than any other liveaboard we've been on. The crew of 5 Fijians were
fantastic. They were all very friendly and took the time to get to know us.
They worked very hard but they truly seemed happy while they were doing it.
The food was also excellent. All the meals were served at the table by Luke
or one of the other crew members and the variety was great. Almost all the
dives were done off the main yacht. Sometimes the currents were a little
strong so getting back to the boat was a little work but there was always a
line to grab onto if needed. We dove all 25 dives that were offered.
Obviously we did some research before going to Fiji to learn what to
expect. We were somewhat disappointed with the clarity, lack of color, and
lack of larger creatures on some of the dives but overall it was fantastic.
The captain (Ned) was very accommodating as he brought us over to an island
to check out the beach during a surface interval and a different time he
brought us to a snorkeling spot. One of the highlights was going to a local
village to take part in a ceremony. Because of a communication error the
village wasn't expecting us when we arrived but they made every effort to
make our experience fantastic. We wanted to experience some more of the
island culture so we stayed an extra few days on land at the Uprising Beach
Hotel. What a great place. It was built sometime in 2007. The beach in
front of the resort is well over a mile long and mostly (while we were
there) vacant. The food at the resort wasn't great but there were a lot of
guests from other resorts that came to the Uprising because of it's better
food. There was a beach party (band, local performers, ...) one of the
nights we stayed that was quite entertaining. We would also highly
recommend the ZipFiji zip lining experience as well as white water rafting
tours to be able to see some of the amazing scenery. If we had more time we
would have loved to travel to more of the islands.
