MV Turks & Caicos Aggressor II dive boat review

The MV Turks and Caicos Aggressor II is one of the worldwide Aggressor Fleet of vessels. It’s a large, luxury vessel. Based in the USA, the Aggressor Fleet has worldwide facilities and experience.


Located approximated 575 miles to the south east of the USA coast from Miami, great visibility and nutrient-rich waters attract a wide range of aquatic life including but not limited to Jacks, Groupers, Eels and large pelagic animals in to feed in it’s healthy waters. There are corals and sponges in abundance making it great diving for all levels of divers. And, reef sharks circling in to take a closer look at you and your buddies! A combination of walls and simply reef dives make it interesting for all levels of diver.



The MV Turks and Caicos Aggressor II is 120ft/36m long and designed specifically for purpose in accordance with Aggressor Fleet Standards. She is capable of cruising at 10 knots and is only marginally shorter than it’s main competitor, Turks and Caicos Explorer II. However, Turks and Caicos II caters to 2 less guests.

3 liveaboard reviews for “MV Turks & Caicos Aggressor II”


    We booked the T&C Aggressor for 12/7-12/14. 90 minutes after the vessel departed the docks, the generators quit working which means no lights, no A/C in guest rooms, no running water, no ship navigation, and of course no diving. After several hours attempting to fix the issue, the local police were called and sent boats out to take us off of the Aggressor and to a hotel. The next day the crew arrived at the hotel at 10am to tell us that the generators were still not functional and that they didn’t know when they would be fixed because they hadn’t been able to diagnose the underlying cause.

    They arranged for us to go snorkeling at a local beach and spend another night in the hotel.

    As of the time of time of this writing, the boat is still disabled and none of the guests have been able to complete a single dive.

  2. Let me start this by saying that collectively over the past 20 years my immediate family has been a passenger at least 35 times on Aggressor vessels. We will not be doing business with them any longer after our recent experience on the Turks and Caicos boat in December 2019.
    We arrived on Saturday afternoon and made our way to the boat. The boat left the dock in the early evening to beat the tide and we began making our way out to sea. After about 60-90 minutes the generators quit and the entire boat lost power. We all sat in the dark and conversed as the crew worked to repair the issue. After nearly 2 hours of working on it, the captain informed us that the Island Police were on their way out to pick us up in boats and bring us back to shore. We loaded up a few essentials and were herded like cattle onto the police boats. Upon making it to shore, there was a vehicle waiting for us to bring us to a hotel (nobody had any idea where we were going). We were dropped off at a hotel and the Aggressor had made arraignments to get us hotel rooms for the night. That was all fine and understandable. Where things really go south is the next morning.
    We wake up around 7 AM and see other passengers wondering around in the hotel lobby. Nobody has any idea what is happening or what we are supposed to be doing. Eventually we call the main Aggressor office in Georgia and explain the situation. The office was apparently not aware of the generator issues and had to call the boat to figure out what was going on. After contacting the captain, the office called back and said (2) crew members would be to the hotel at 10 AM to pick us up. We thought “pick us up” meant the boat was fixed and we would be back out diving by the afternoon. We were wrong.
    The crew, neither of which was the captain, did arrive around 10 AM as promised and notified us that the boat wasn’t fixed, the problem wasn’t even identified yet, and that a mechanic was being called to go out to the boat. The crew then mentioned that we would be going snorkeling for the day. Wrong. I did not travel all this way to go snorkeling on shore.
    Passengers repeatedly asked for details, but the crew had no information. They made us check out of the hotel and we didn’t even know where we were going to be staying that night. As you can imagine frustration started to set in for many passengers. The crew even started mentioning that if the issue wasn’t diagnosed soon that the trip would likely be cancelled by Aggressor and they would send us all home. At this point, I had enough waiting and lack of information and elected to end my trip right there. My brother and I asked the crew to call the captain and get us return flights back to the US immediately. They called and started the process. After 15 minutes, the captain called back and said the travel agents were not available because it was Sunday. We had to book our own 1-way tickets back to the US, which were expensive (>$1000 each). The crew at the hotel mentioned that we could send the expenses to the main office for reimbursement. That turned out to be a lie.
    We contacted the Aggressor office the next afternoon (Monday) and requested we be compensated for the failed trip. They said they would discuss how to compensate us internally and get back to us after the regular trip was completed. Apparently, the boat ended up being fixed on Monday morning and left the dock, but we were already back in the US. Keep in mind that even though it was fixed, nearly 2 out of 4.5 days of diving were already lost.
    After waiting for another 10 days, we contacted the office again and they said “Sorry, we are not going to do anything for you”. Nice way to run your business, Aggressor. So, we spent thousands of dollars to go to Turks and Caicos, sit in the dark, be shuttled like cattle on police boats, sit in a crappy hotel, and wait for exactly zero relevant pieces of information about the generator failure. But at least they wanted to take us snorkeling. This company doesn’t care about you or your repeated business.
    This isn’t the only horror story related to the Aggressor. We spoke with another passenger (while twiddling out thumbs at the hotel) about his experience on the Palau Aggressor. The diving on that boat takes place on skiffs from the mothership. He was on the skiff and it capsized injuring several passengers (apparently broken bones) and they had to swim to an island and wait for hours to be spotted and rescued. Unbelievable. Funny how you only hear the good reviews of this company, isn’t it? Consider these facts next time you think about booking the Aggressor. Aggressor just lost my family’s business and I’ll never recommend it to any of my diving friends. Hope you don’t get stranded in a hotel or deserted island if you dare book a trip with Aggressor.
