[None]Belize Aggressor boat is made for diving- roomy space under bed to
store dive bags. Rooms made up daily, always fresh towels in room and on
deck. Food was varied and very good- chicken , ribs , fish ,and a wide
variety of other well prepared and delicious food- as good as I have
encountered on a dive boat.Wine is included and came from Spain- adequate
but could have been more variety of wine. Four day dives each day plus a
night dive. Once divers exhibited adequate dive and navigation skills, the
divers were allowed complete freedom on their dives. You could choose to
dive with or without a divemaster from the boat. Dives are off the stern (
no zodiacs used) and the dive deck has ample room to store gear and suit
up. About 30% of dives had strong currents, esp. when approaching the
ladder at dives' end. Ladders are wide and easy to climb up. Boat provides
a hang tank as well as a safety stop bar 15 ft below the boat for those
wishing to hang there for their safety stop. The one dive where the
divemasters dictated certain dive restrictions was the Blue Hole dive,
since most of the divers were on Nitrox and the Blue Hole is a relatively
deep dive ( We dove it on 25% Nitrox to allow for a deep dive, but were
instructed to go no lower than 132 ft.). All in all it is a superb boat,
well staffed and organized with great food . It makes diving an easy and
painless task. I highly recommend this boat.
