Comments In my opinion, Raja Ampat is probably one of the best dive destinations in the world and the Raja Ampat Aggressor is one of the best ways to experience it.

This location has an incredible amount of sea life both in numbers and variety. Nutibranchs were so common; I stopped taking pictures of them. I have diving for a long time all over the world and I saw creatures I have never seen before. The only thing missing were large pelagic, but i think I was not there at best time of year to see them. The cabins on this boat are average for a liveaboard. Meals were delicious including gourmet dinners.
The boat and crew were excellent. 15 crew for 16 passengers. For diving, we were split into three groups, four to six divers per group, with a dive master for each group. Diving is done from rigid inflatables. This is a remote location and not easy to get to. It took me five flights to get there. It is defiantly worth the effort.Take your time getting there and enjoy the adventure.
