Comments  
I did not care for the dive schedule on this boat.  We were forced to eat
dinner at 6pm to accommodate the night dive schedule, the dive being done
after dinner.  As it was dark around 6:30,  I would have preferred the dive
first and then a later dinner.
The air conditioning did not work properly in the rooms or the salon, which
made the evening meal quite warm and uncomfortable in the dining room.  As
we were there in July,  the outside temp was very hot and humid.  
The corals of Belize are still beautiful (this is our 6th trip to dive
Belize),  although you have to travel to specific spots to see them, we
spent most of our time off of Long Caye and Half Moon Caye.
The fish population has been lessened over the years,  but I still always
enjoy the beauty of Belize.
As for the Aggressor,  we felt the trip was overpriced for the area, and
did not appreciate the fact that at the farewell meeting,  the captain
strongly suggested we leave a 15% tip per person for the crew.  This was
something new to me,  as all the other dive operations I have been with
suggest a per diem tip suggestion in their pre-cruise brochure.
