Every Saturday, the luxurious Belize Aggressor III casts off from Belize City for a week of hassle-free wall diving at Turneffe and Lighthouse Reefs. Sheer walls like Painted Wall, Half Moon Caye Wall and Quebrada are adorned with huge crimson gorgonians and wandering, lilac rope sponges. Weather permitting, divers explore the mystical Blue Hole, a collapsed freshwater cave system. With all dives from the mother ship, diving is unlimited. Diving begins Sunday morning and ends Friday before lunch when the Aggressor returns to port. Check-out is Saturday morning. A trip to this Central American paradise isn’t complete without a visit to Belize’s Mayan ruins or a cave tubing ride through the jungle. Tours are offered on Friday afternoon, but an extended stay with a local operator is recommended to fully enjoy the wonders of Belize.
The Belize Aggressor III is a 120-foot, all aluminum yacht built and powered for comfort, safety and stability. She is diesel-powered, cruises at 15 knots and has 110-volt power on board. Accommodations include 9 double staterooms, 7 of which have a double and single berths and 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 and it has one double bed. All staterooms offer private heads and showers, individual climate controls and TV/VCRs.
The dive deck, salon, galley and dining room are on the main level. The air-conditioned salon is attractively furnished and designed for comfort and relaxation. It includes an entertainment center with TV, VCR and stereo with compact disc player. A slide projector, screen and built-in light table make slide view easy. Meals are prepared by a trained chef and served on the buffet counter in the galley. The dining room is in the bow of the boat. There is a TV and VCR so guests may watch a movie or video while they dine.
Exiting the salon and traveling toward the stern of the boat, guests enter the large dive deck. This is the area where divers suit up and prepare their gear. Each diver has his own personal dive station complete with seat and locker. All tanks are filled in place with either air or nitrox. There are several 80-cubic-foot cylinders on board and 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 and exiting is simple with the aid of two ladders extending underwater. Two freshwater rinse showers and 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 and E-6 photo lab 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 and deck chairs. Lunches and 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. Guests may sun bath up here or just relax and take in the beautiful panoramic view.
