MORE DETAILS about the BELIZE AGGRESSOR's ONBOARD AMENITIES:
Years ago, the 18-passenger Belize Aggressor III ushered in a new era for Caribbean dive yachts. Spacious staterooms with en suite baths, TV/VCRs & individual climate controls are just a few of the personal amenities this floating dive resort offers. Every week this 120-foot yacht speeds 30-60 miles offshore, far out of day operators' reach, exploring the world's second largest barrier reef.

If you arrive on Saturday, a crew member will greet you at the Belize City airport & drive you to the boat. Guests may board the Belize Aggressor III Saturday afternoon after 2:00 p.m., then unpack, relax & enjoy a delicious dinner served by the onboard chef. Sunday morning the Aggressor moves to the first of many excellent dives sites. Divers are awakened by the smells of coffee & a home-cooked breakfast. After a dive briefing, the pool is open-no boat rides, no hassles.

Throughout the week, the Belize Aggressor III explores the reefs & walls along Turneffe Islands, Lighthouse Reef & the Blue Hole. Some of the marine life divers may encounter include eagle rays, nurse sharks, grouper, stingrays, eels & tarpon-especially on the night dives. You may want to capture some of Belize's colorful sponges, gorgonians or macro critters on film with one of the onboard rental cameras. There is a full line of rental camera equipment & dive gear available throughout the week, as well as certification & specialty courses. Weather permitting, guests are shuttled ashore to Half Moon Caye for a walk on the beach & a hike through the bird sanctuary.

Friday afternoon, the Belize Aggressor III returns to Belize City. Belize diving guests may take a tour of the Belize Zoo, explore Mayan ruins or just relax onboard until the evening cocktail party hosted by the crew. (The tours are not included in the charter price.) After the party, everyone will dine at a local restaurant. This is the only meal not included in the charter. Check-out is about 8:00 a.m. Saturday morning. If you are flying out Saturday morning, the crew will arrange your transportation to the Belize City airport.

Deck plans for the Belize Aggressor III, showing public areas & private cabins.


VESSEL SPECIFICATIONS & TECHNICAL DATA:
The Belize Aggressor III is a 120-foot, all aluminum yacht built & powered for comfort, safety & stability. She is diesel-powered, cruises at 15 knots & has 110-volt power on board. Accommodations include 9 double staterooms, 7 of which have a double & single berths & one cabin (Cabin #1) with 2 single berths. All staterooms, except Cabin #9, are located on lower level. Cabin #9, or the "Honeymoon Suite," is on the upper level & it has one double bed. All staterooms offer private heads & showers, individual climate controls & TV/VCRs.

The dive deck, salon, galley & dining room are on the main level. The air-conditioned salon is attractively furnished & designed for comfort & relaxation. It includes an entertainment center with TV, VCR & stereo with compact disc player. A slide projector, screen & built-in light table make slide viewing & slide shows very easy. Meals are prepared by a trained & talented chef & served on the buffet counter in the galley. The dining room is in the bow of the boat. There is a TV & VCR so guests may watch a movie or video while they dine.

Exiting the salon & traveling toward the stern of the boat, guests enter the large dive deck. This is the area where divers suit up & prepare their gear. Each diver has his own personal dive station complete with seat & locker. All tanks are filled in place with either air or nitrox. There are several 80-cubic-foot cylinders on board & two 60-cubic-foot cylinders. After donning their gear, divers take a few steps down the ladders to the dive platform. Entries are made easily with a giant stride & exiting is simple with the aid of two ladders extending underwater. Two freshwater rinse showers & a fin rack are conveniently located on the dive platform. A dive briefing area, three-tiered camera table with low-pressure air hoses, camera rinse tank, head are all part of the roomy dive deck.

A few steps up from the dive deck is everyone's favorite spot, the sun deck. This partially shaded deck features a wet bar, gas grill, hot tub, chaise lounges & deck chairs. Lunches & between-dive snacks are often served on the sun deck. But, there's even more to the Belize Aggressor III! A stairway near the wet bar leads to the fourth level, the fly bridge. Belize diving guests may sun bathe up here or just relax & take in the beautiful panoramic view.  Life moves at a pretty easy clip on this well-run vessel.

BELIZE AGGRESSOR DIVE SITES DETAILED:

Black Beauty:
Known for sightings of turtles & eagle rays, this area features long mounds of coral with sandy bottom channels. The wall begins around 50 ft. Elbow: This advanced dive boasts one of the best opportunities to see large pelagics such as eagle rays & reef and hammerhead sharks. Strong currents are often present.

Grand Bogue:
This site is home to the elusive white spotted, white lined & large-eyed toadfish.

Wreck of the Sayonara:
Remains of a 50 ft. boat with coral growth around the wreck & numerous barrel sponges, along with many other sponge varieties.

West Point 1 & 2:
The visibility at these sites is highly dependent upon winds & tides, but the labyrinth of reef buttresses makes this site great even when visibility is down. The walls are very vertical & start in only 20 - 25 ft. of water. Loads of black coral & deep water gorgonians abound, as do giant barrel sponges & red finger sponges. You are likely to see mangrove tunicates here. The shallow sandy area is alive with garden eels, peacock flounders, & southern stingrays. In the sandy areas, blue throated pike blennies can be found.

Triple Anchor:
Three anchors are very well hidden on a beautiful reef in 45 ft. of water. Look for big barrel sponges, eagle rays & a cleaning station.

Eagle Ray Wall:
More arrow blennies that you will probably see anywhere else, plus loads of decorator crabs.

Painted Wall:
There are many clusters of small painted tunicates, within the depths of 40 - 70 ft. These walls have shallows inhabited by species of parrot fish, black durgeon, queen trigger fish, & many more. The sheer walls begin around 25 ft. & are overhung in many places with black coral trees & rope sponges covered with light bulb tunicates.

Aquarium:
A sheer drop-off begins around 30 ft., with an abundance of fish life at the top. About 40-60 ft. deep along the wall are large baffel sponges, giant deep water sea fans, & the richest collection of deep water gorgonians almost anywhere in the world. Giant elephant ear sponges, yellow tube sponges & azure vase sponges make this a very colorful area. Comical groupings of spotted truck fish are often seen on top of the wall, & the very corner of this reef is a very good place to see reef sharks, big black groupers, swirling schools of horse eyed jacks &  hawksbill or green sea turtles.

Silver Caves:
The large swim through is frequently inhabited by thousands of silver sides, & the vertical wall starts in only 35 ft. of water. Lots of big black groupers collect under the boat, as do the ubiquitous school of horse-eyed jacks, yellow tailed snappers, & creole wrasses.

Cathedral:
Colorful formations resembling cathedral steeples with sandy cuts in between signify this site. This site is home to many black groupers and jacks, as well as three species of angel fish, scorpion fish, several varieties of eels & silver sides. Spanish dancers are sometimes sighted on the night dives.

Long Caye Wall:
Named for a protruding ridge of reef & numerous swim throughs with grooves which cut the wall running directly to the open sea. Interesting soft corals & sponges are abundant here, & many eels are found here, as well.

Quebrada:
Named for a cut in the reef (the wall & shallows), this is an extremely sheer & active stretch of wall. Because it projects out into the current, the extra flow of plankton around it supports an incredibly rich diversity of marine animals. Green moray eels, spotted drum, lobster, crabs, & tarpon on the night dives.

Half Moon Caye Wall:
Marked by tunnels & grooves which slope down toward the open water, several different species of grouper & snapper can be seen in the tunnels. Just off the wall, one can spot eagle rays, sharks & turtles.

Angel Fish Wall:
Many friendly grey angel fish give this site its name. The top of the wall teems with small fish. Eagle rays & an occasional shark cruise the wall.

Elk Horn Forest:
Located on the east side of Long Caye, the shallows grow large mounds of lettuce leaf coral that projects towards the depths. In the shallows are elk horn corals inhabited by numerous species of juvenile fish.

Blue Hole:
The world's largest oceanic blue hole, it was discovered by Jacques Cousteau in the 1970's. The first shelf of this collapsed underground cavern begins at 110 ft. Here stalactites descend from the ceiling. A healthy reef exists around the edge of the blue hole & is home to an abundance of juvenile sea life, as well as schools of parrot fish, squid, flaming scallops & several varieties of angel fish. This is a Belize diving mega-classic!

Tarpon Caves:
A tall reef buttress rises straight up from the whitest powder sand to within 30-35 ft. of the surface & is honeycombed with caves & cuts. This vertical wall is covered with huge yellow tube sponges, black coral trees & monster barrel sponges projecting from the many small ledges. The sand areas are rich in garden eels, midnight
parrot fish, razor fish & southern stingrays. Tarpon patrol the inside edge of the reef. This renowned Belize scuba diving site features several tunnels & chimneys in which tarpon & grouper like to hide.

Half Moon Caye:
Weather permitting, the Belize Aggressor III anchors just off Half Moon Caye, another stellar Belize diving classic. Guests are shuttled to the island & enjoy a relaxing walk along the beach to the bird sanctuary. Here you can observe red footed booby birds & frigate birds from observation deck built at the canopy level. Located on the east end of the island is an historic light house built in 1848, which by the way is the lighthouse for which the atoll is named. The guests may have the opportunity to snorkel with several nurse sharks around the docks of this tropical island.

PLEASE NOTE: All Belize scuba diving sites are selected by the Captain & may vary due to weather conditions & logistics.

IMPORTANT REMINDER about PRICES & TARIFFS:

All dive package prices listed here for our Belize live-aboards are subject to possible change in this steadily evolving travel market. Lodging, side tour & diving prices are traditionally stable, as are live-aboard package prices; however air prices can fluctuate daily. Until air tickets are issued, all airlines reserve the right to change airfares without notice -- an industry standard per FAA rules. Remember please, the federal government has deregulated all U.S.-based airlines, so only they control their pricing -- not any travel professionals. Early is good when seeking the best air ticket rates for Belize live-aboards.

Unless specifically noted, these above scuba diving packages for Belize live-aboards are prices for only the live-aboard portion of your dive trip, in most cases reflecting double-occupancy rooms. On Belize live-aboards, there will be no triple-occupancy staterooms offered. International air tickets & commuter "island-hopper" seats are always extra above these land costs. Nominal service fees are also extra for air tickets & the dive vessel + side tour components. The baseline tariffs for all clients start at $55 per person for the vessel portion + $45 pp for the air tickets. Late-booking Belize diving clients may receive slightly higher tariffs on the lodging + diving at many of our Belize live-aboards. Solo clients will always pay a single supplement to secure a private stateroom on any Belize live-aboards -- normally 65% or more than the standard double-occupancy rate for the live-aboard of your choice.

The preferred payment mode for all Belize live-aboards & air ticket specials is by cashier's check or wire transfer in U.S. dollars. Electronic bank-to-ban checks are fine, as well. All clients for Belize live-aboards who are living outside the USA or Canada will need to pay for their dive vacations via direct wire transfer only. No personal checks will be accepted for any reservation. Thank you for your gracious understanding. Our service level is the highest & our prices the lowest in this industry, & thus we need to preserve a reasonable margin. For published-fare air ticket bookings, USDT always accepts Visa & Mastercard. For ultra-discount wholesale air tickets, USDT accepts only cashier's checks or wire transfers, please.

Remember, all tropical vacation clients on Belize live-aboards will be asked by local officials overseas, upon departing the airport on your final day, to pay a nominal government departure tax, usually about USD $35 - $45 per client. USDT cannot collect this tax beforehand, so you simply pay it down there, in your host country. Be sure to stash away a little cash for this final moment at the airport, so you'll get your exit visa stamped quickly with no fuss; & away you go. Best of luck with your dive travel plans on our Belize live-aboards. We hope your scuba diving vacation is a safe & satisfying adventure. Blessings & best wishes with ALL your dive vacations on our Belize live-aboards.

Best fishes too!
