You re-adjust your mask strap, check your BCD is inflated once more, then place your regulator mouthpiece in; these are the last few moments on land before you take that plunge into the deep.
That excitement and trepidation of what you will encounter is the whole reason we dive, and here at Rainbow Divers, it’s truly the reason we get up in the morning. But quite apart from the macro treasures and photogenic creatures to be witnessed off our shores in Vietnam, we also have another thing up our sleeve (albeit a neoprene sleeve that is).
Rainbow Divers is also an authorised dealer for the Aggressor Fleet worldwide. For those not in the know, the Aggressor Fleet is hands down the most reputable dive liveaboard company operating on the fair seas; it’s quite a grand statement isn’t it? But for 30 years, the Aggressor Fleet has mastered the art of blending scuba diving with innovation, personalized service, professional staff, and safety with a vision of success. With literally thousands of amazing reviews online, they are famous for many things but simply put, the staff of the Aggressor Fleet turn simple services into life changing experiences for their guests.
But why are we banging on about a fleet of liveaboards when we have our own diving right here in Vietnam? It’s simple, we believe we offer the best options for diving the sites around Nha Trang, Whale island, Con Dao and Phu Quoc. But as for the rest of the world, we feel passionate about the stellar service the Aggressor Fleet offers and frankly, we can think of nobody better to discover the ocean with.
Our partnership with the Aggressor Fleet means that as an authorised dealer, we can offer you some fantastic opportunities whether you pop into one of our shops or do everything online. The best course of action is to contact our founder, and general dive enthusiast, Jeremy Stein.
With quite literally thousands of dives under his belt, he’s been a lot of places, and knows a good operator when he sees one. But this isn’t just PR nonsense, as, he himself has recently taken a trip on one of the liveaboards they offer; the Galapagos Aggressor 3.
Now, of course the Galapagos has a reputation unmatched by any other destination, but we caught up with Jeremy himself to get the lowdown on what he encountered…
“Well, of course, with IDCs running year-round here at Rainbow Divers, it isn’t always easy to sneak away, but in June 2016, I took a busman’s holiday and found myself on the Aggressor Galapagos Liveaboard. The 7 night/20 dive excursion left no-one disappointed. All the expected sightings were seen plus quite a few which left me totally in awe of the experience. My diving ‘buddies’ included Whale Sharks, hundreds of Hammerhead Sharks, Galapagos Sharks, Ocean White Tip Sharks, Mola Mola, Seals, Penguins, Pilot Whales and Dolphins. Undoubtedly the most memorable events were diving with the amphibious Iguanas, snorkelling with the Pilot Whales and watching the Mola Mola breach and ‘fly’ from the surface of the water. Of course, no Galapagos trip would be complete without a mention of the islands famous mascot, my newest adopted friend, the Blue Footed Boobie!”
It truly is an experience for the senses, and diving with the Aggressor Fleet is a trip few if any regret. But you don’t have to go all the way to Ecuador to have your own adventure. With a global fleet of top-class yachts catering to divers every need, you can find your way onto a trip in only a few hours from your nearest airport.
