Comments [None]Trip was with dive group( 18 people) from Buffalo. Aggressor IV was in dry dock, so group spent week on Aggressor III. Had mixed crew from both boats that did an excellent job. As typical of any Aggressor or Peter Hughes crew I have experienced, they did an excellent job 24/7 of catering to your every need. Boat is older than Aggressor IV and this is notable in the size and layout of the boat. Great( roomy) dive deck with bathroom and showers. Plenty of room for cameras and dive gear. All dives have a guide or you and your buddy can do your own thing. Five dives a day available except for 6th day when heading for port which meant only 2 dives. Great food, prepared well and attractively, although a little heavy on the chicken.
As I mentioned, the boat is older, and therefore the cabins are small and have only one drawer per person( no closet). However, when on a liveaboard only bathing suits and t-shirts are needed, even for meals. Each cabin has its own toilet and shower, although the shower on the dive deck was used until the last day. As typical of the Caribbean, reefs have suffered from hurricanes( sand on shallow reefs), alga, lion fish and climate change. Anybody who has dived in the Caribbean for the last 30 years can see the deterioration of the coral reefs and Belize is no different. However, Belize on a sunny day can be the best the Caribbean has to offer.
