Comments This was a repeat of several prior trips aboard the Belize Aggressor IV (recently renamed the Sun Dancer II. It is my favorite liveaboard. The accommodations are commodious with twin or double beds instead of bunks and a private head in each cabin. The food and the service are outstanding. The dive deck is organized and the crew is on top of everything. Fills are immediate upon returning from a dive. One can dive 5 dives/day Sunday through Thursday and 2 dives on Friday.

Skip the Blue Hole; it's highly overrated with little to see.

Really, skip the Blue Hole? Like only going to the second level of the Eiffel Tower because Rick Steves says not to pay the extra to go to the top! Heard the reef around the Blue Hole was great. Any comments on that?
