Comments Revisiting the Red Sea Aggressor (2014 – 2018)

It has been four years (2014) since we last dove the Red Sea. Back then, it was just called the Red Sea Aggressor. Recently, Aggressor added another boat to the Red Sea fleet, designating the original boat, The Red Sea Aggressor I. In 2014, we were happily impressed with the boat, as at that time the boat was new, and everything worked and worked well. On our return trip to the Red Sea Aggressor I (9/22-9/29) we were unsure what to expect. But, we were thrilled to find the boat in excellent condition and even some of the same crew from 2014.

First off, the boat now docks in the heart of the shopping district in Port Ghalib, instead of in the “back forty,” far away from the activity, as in 2014. This had pro’s and con’s. Pro: We were able to disembark and walk around, eat at the restaurants and shop easily.

I was onboard he RSA I for two weeks inn April. Returning for two weeks in December. Exceptional service, Prepare to be spoiled. glad to know everything is still great. I agree, Marina Lodge is so-so. I stayed there in a day room between trips (Sat. must leave boat at 8 am). No food options unless you were staying on all-inclusive and nothing else within walking distance. Upcoming trip, I've got a room and Sunrise Marina Resort.
