aggressor telly awards 1000

Aggressor Adventures, one of the world’s premier scuba diving liveaboard operators, has received five Telly Awards for its work in the Cayman Islands and Sri Lanka as part of the second season of 'Born to Explore with Richard Wiese.'

Aggressor received two silver awards in the Travel/Tourism and Nature/Wildlife categories for 'Born to Explore: Cayman Islands – The Deep Blue' and a third silver in the Cultural category for 'Born to Explore: Sri Lanka – Land of Wonder', for which it also won two bronze awards in the Nature/Wildlife and Travel/Tourism categories.

The Telly Awards, now in its 42nd year, honours excellence in television and video and is judged by leading members of various video platforms, television and streaming networks, and production companies, including Dow Jones, Duplass Brothers Productions, Complex Networks, A&E Networks, Hearst Media, ESPN Films, RYOT, Vice+ and Vimeo.

'We are excited to win five Telly Awards and are proud of all the work our team has done over the past year to bring our adventures into the living rooms of travel fanatics around the globe,' said Wayne Brown, Chairman and CEO of Aggressor Adventures. 'We see these awards as further validation of our relentless commitment to the adventure travel industry and a positive representation of our staff’s overall enthusiasm for bringing customers the Adventure of a Lifetime.'

'Born to Explore' is hosted by 'modern-day Indiana Jones' Richard Wiese, travelling across the globe to celebrate different world cultures and encounter rare and endangered wildlife. Aggressor Adventures first partnered with the show in 2018.

'Aggressor Adventures is the perfect exploration partner,' said Wiese. 'Wayne Brown’s adventurous spirit and the first-class brand are critical to the show’s ability to explore new locales, cultures, nature and history of the places I visit on the show. My team and I are so grateful to have Aggressor Adventures as a partner and are thrilled for the brand’s special recognition from Telly with these awards.'

Season 3 of Born to Explore with Richard Wiese premiered on 4 April 2020 on PBS stations, some of which is available on Amazon Prime (with a PBS subscription). For more information, visit
