"Fat City Afloat." That was the term used by underwater cinematographer Stan Waterman to describe the Fiji Aggressor. After spending a week aboard the 106-foot catamaran, you may agree. Every week, 16 lucky divers set off from Denarau, Fiji for an unforgettable adventure filled with spectacular diving in the warm, rich waters of Fiji, the "Soft Coral Capital of the World." The Fiji Aggressor is proud to have been named a Handicapped Scuba Association-approved barrier-free dive yacht.

The transfer bus to the boat leaves the hotel at 12:30 p.m. The short ride to the boat is only 30 minutes. The Fiji Aggressor docks at the Denaru Marina. Guests may board the Fiji Aggressor Saturday after 1:00 p.m. The Aggressor leaves the dock at 2:00 p.m. Once onboard, you can unpack, relax and enjoy a delicious dinner served by the onboard chef.

You may want to capture some of Fiji's underwater beauty on film with one of the onboard rental cameras. There is a full line of rental camera equipment and dive gear available throughout the week, as well as certification and specialty courses. With the onboard E-6 photo lab, divers may view their slides just hours after they were shot. Weather permitting, guests are shuttled ashore to a local village for a "meke" or party. After a tour of the village, everyone gathers in the meeting hall for a few sips of "kava," a local ceremonial drink, and dancing. The Fijians are very friendly and are happy to share a taste of their culture with visitors.
