Plying the waters of the Arabian Sea and the Gulf of Oman, the Oman Aggressor luxury yacht offers divers the opportunity to live aboard and experience some truly stunning coral and marine life, as well as enjoying rugged desert and mountain views.
There are 11 staterooms on board Oman Aggressor; six Deluxe Staterooms with twin beds, two Master Staterooms with twin beds that can convert to a king, two Master Staterooms with a full king sized bed, and one luxury Suite, also with a king sized bed. All staterooms are air-conditioned and fitted with private bathrooms, hair dryers and flat screen TVs. The décor is light and modern and all staterooms feature a window to let in natural light too.
All meals are included during your stay on Oman Aggressor and are fresh and plentiful. Breakfasts include fresh fruit, hot entrees and various continental items; lunches are buffet style and include both hot and cold options; and dinner is a la carte, with a variety of local Omani and international dishes available. Various dietary requirements can also be catered for if the team is made aware at the time of booking.
Activities on board are primarily dive focused, with the crew offering up to five dives per day, and night dives when appropriate. Since there are more than 1000 different types of fish calling the Arabian Sea and Gulf of Oman home, divers should expect to see a huge range of marine life, including manta rays, whale sharks, dolphin, reef fish, macro critters, mola mola, mobulas and sharks. There are also a number of beautiful coral reef diving sites and virtually undiscovered reefs and wrecks. Apart from diving, guests can also relax on the spacious sun deck and take a dip in the hot tub, or snorkel to secluded beaches.
Oman Aggressor sets sail on set itineraries of either seven or ten days to the Hallaniyat Islands, Daymaniyat Islands or Musandam Peninsula. The dive sites around the Musandam Peninsula are characterised by walls of up to 20m, caves and extensive coral gardens; the Daymaniyat Islands dive sites are characterised by coral reefs - which cover 70% of the dive sites seabed's - and are also a protected nature reserve and important turtle nesting site; and the lesser known Hallaniyat Islands are the undiscovered gem in the area and characterised by their untouched dive sites and wrecks, and the opportunity to see humpback whales.
Why we love it
The unspoilt and undiscovered waters around Oman are some of our favourite hidden gem diving sites.
