Dive Travel Information and Group Scuba Diving Trips | Travel is a natural extension of learning to scuba dive. Many people begin diving to experience the beauty they have seen on television, online or in diving books. These customers want to travel even before they are certified. Active local divers are naturally interested in travel and are curious and/or adventurous enough to explore new and exotic locales. Dive travel includes more than underwater exploration; it's also about delving into the sights, sounds, tastes, and even shopping of different cultures. In fact, many active divers begin as active travelers. | Contact Scuba Center to plan your dive trip today!

Kona Aggressor II Hawaii liveaboard | The Big Island's volcanic underwater topography is a diver's wonderland. Lava tubes, bommies, arches and huge craters like “Au Au Crater,” create a spectacular backdrop for Hawaii’s many indigenous species of Butterfly fish. Photographers will delight in the many subjects like Spanish Dancers, turtles, mantas and frogfish.  Kona is located on the Big Island of Hawaii. The Kona Aggressor II operates out of downtown Kailua-Kona. The Kona Aggressor II offers a week of hassle-free diving along the western coast of the island at favorite sites like Paradise Pinnacle, Tubestria Tunnel, The Hive, Turtle Pinnacle and Rob’s Reef. The yacht ventures far from the reach of day operators to beautiful South Point, the southernmost tip of Hawaii and the United States, weather permitting. With lava flows in the background, divers suit up for a week of spectacular diving. Excellent snorkeling is available for non-diving passengers.

Robert's Grove Beach Resort | Belize Group Dive Trip | Dive into the wonders of the magnificent Barrier Reef of Belize. The fully certified PADI 5 Star Dive Center at Robert's Grove stands ready to guide you through this remarkable underwater paradise with multitudes of Gorgonian fan corals, enormous sponges, hundreds of colorful fish, sheer coral-encrusted walls and the wondrous Pelagics.  Located along the Caribbean coast of the Placencia Peninsula in southern Belize, the award-winning Robert’s Grove Beach Resort, is a comfortable, beautifully appointed property set amidst 22 acres of tropical, art-filled gardens and sandy beach that offers easy access to all of Belize’s top attractions: The largest Barrier Reef in the Western Hemisphere, lush Rainforest and Maya Ruins. Over twenty five percent of Belize is protected as various types of reserves. If you look at a map of Belize, you will see that most of these are in the south. Some of the most pristine reef systems are in Southern Belize, and Gladden Spit the world famous Whale shark feeding site is just a short boat ride away. The aquatic life varies in the different areas of the Belize Barrier reef and the topography ranges from sheer walls to fringing reef systems to atolls, patch reef and caverns. Our recent exploratory trip yielded squadrons of eagle rays, hawksbill and loggerhead turtles along with 3 species of sharks patroling the reefs.

The Aggressor Fleet is now going to be allowed to offer liveaboard dive travel to the Gardens of the Queen - the premier Cuba dive area. We have booked prime February 2017 dates for this trip. Our trip includes a Old Havana visit as well as interaction with top Cuban marine scientists. On our recent trips these additions helped to make it an incredible experience.
   
  Dominica: Apr. 1-8, 2017
Buddy Dive Dominica Fort Young Hotel | Group Dive Trip Buddy Dive on Dominica at the Fort Young Hotel is the ideal place for your dive holiday! This oceanfront Hotel & Dive shop are located at the heart of our island’s historic capital Roseau which makes Dominica’s finest heritage hotel the perfect place to stay. Dominica's reefs are made up of volcanic formations of ledges, crevices and swim throughs. These formations give refuge to a myriad of small critters considered rare in other destinations. Seahorses and frogfish are common and almost guaranteed sightings for divers on a weeklong package. Other rarer critters like batfish, flying gurnards, yellow head jawfish, upside-down jelly fish and flamingo tongue snails can be found if you carefully search the reefs.
   
  Raja Ampat Indonesia S/Y Indo Siren luxury liveaboard: Feb 8-25, 2018*
This trip is full. Please contact us if you have questions or to be put on a wait list.
S/Y Indo Siren luxury liveaboard | Raja Ampat Indonesia Group Dive Trip We are excited to announce a return trip to Indonesia with the S/Y Indo Siren luxury liveaboard. Same boat (and likely the same crew) as our last trip, but this time we are diving Raja Ampat. Raja Ampat currently offers what most think to be the best tropical diving in Indonesia -  maybe the world. Raja Ampat is all about diversity, not only of marine species but also of dive sites. Recently declared a marine sanctuary the 46,000 square km park gives you wildly different dive experiences. From pelagic drift dives to magical dark sand muck dives (and even some habitats that are special to Raja Ampat such as clear water mangroves with corals growing right next to them) there are thousands of potential dive sites in Raja Ampat.
   
  Yap / Palau Aggressor liveaboard: Feb 26 - Mar 12, 2018

Enjoy 3 days of 3 tank boat diving and explore rich coral walls and caverns that Yap offers. The trip then moves to our next destination with a flight to Palau, Micronesia. After a night at the West Plaza by the Sea Hotel, our group boards the Palau Aggressor II for a week of diving. Palau's mushroom-shaped rock islands offer a variety of exciting dives: WWII wrecks, channels, blue holes, and even a few caverns. There are also sheer walls covered in lush soft corals and huge anemones. Beginner divers may find Palau's strong currents challenging.
