Belize is a wall diver's paradise. Sheer walls like Painted Wall, Half Moon Caye Wall and Quebrada are adorned with huge crimson gorgonians and giant orange elephant ear sponges. Moray eels, spiny lobsters and tiny arrow crabs hide in every crack, crevice, cave and tunnels of these beautiful coral formations. These are just a few things you will see at Lighthouse Reef, Half Moon Cay and Turneffe Reef.
Belizean waters host nearly every species of fish and coral found in the Caribbean, plus an amazing variety of sponges. The total number of fish and invertebrate species is around 600, and there are over 40 species of coral, from hard elkhorn and staghorn coral (named because they branch like antlers) to gorgonian fans and other soft formations that sway with the current.
Diving on the Belize Aggressor III begins Sunday morning and ends Friday at lunch. There will be up to 5 dives each day as well as night dives. Belize is renowned for its magnificent wall diving. Sheer walls like Painted Wall, Half Moon Caye Wall and Quebrada are encrusted with massive gorgonians and orange elephant ear sponges hiding Moray eels, spiny lobsters and crabs. Another popular dive site is the Blue Hole, a collapsed freshwater cave system approximately 300m wide and over 120m deep. Jacques Cousteau declared the Blue Hole one of the top ten dive sites in the world. The Belize Aggressor III takes scuba divers to these spectacular sites along with many other stunning dive sites, year round
This remarkable sinkhole measuring over 300 metres (984 ft.) across and 125 metres (400 ft.) deep. The Great Blue Hole is a Belize National Monument and UNESCO World Heritage site. Experienced divers can venture to the limits of recreational SCUBA diving to see Costeau’s giant stalactites at 40 metres (130 ft.). This profile is for experienced divers only—divers with 25 or more dives. For those not qualified for this depth or who simply want a longer dive profile, Belize Diving Services offers a second dive profile to 24 metres (80 ft.). On this dive, you will not swim through the stalactites, however, you will experience the drop-off and likely see some sharks.
The M/V Belize Aggressor III is a 33m luxury liveaboard that comfortably accommodates 18 divers attended to by an attentive crew of 6 members. Boat facilities include a spacious salon with full entertainment system, a sundeck with hot tub, chaise lounges, bar service, and nine spacious cabins. All cabins include a private head and shower, individual climate control and TV/DVD.
Our days too fall into a pleasant, predictable routine: Jody or Chris rings the bell, and we all move Pavlovian-style to the dining room or the dive deck: breakfast at 7 a.m., dive at 8 a.m. Then it’s snack time, then dive, lunch, dive, snack, dive. Then it’s dinner time and a night dive. And let’s be clear when I say “snack,” I mean homemade brownies, chicken wings, spinach-artichoke dip, and desserts like bananas foster with ice cream every night with dinner.
You can drop up to 130ft, from where you can swim beneath an overhang, observing stalactites above and, sometimes, a school of reef sharks below. Although the water is clear, light levels are low, so a good dive light will enable divers to appreciate the sponge and invertebrate life. Because of the depth, ascent begins after eight minutes; the brevity of the dive does disappoint some divers.
The Blue Hole – You’ve probably seen aerial shots of Belize’s signature dive. At more than 300 metres/1000 feet across and 135 metres/450 feet deep, this spectacular hole-in-the-reef dive is a day-trip away from most of Belize’s dive resorts. You'll be rewarded with a payoff that includes reef and bull sharks and fascinating stalactite and stalagmite formations.
