Comments Our trip was aboard the Peter Hughes live-aboard Sun Dancer 2 out of Belize City, Belize. The boat was absolutely georgeous and very well equipped to accomadate a fun filled week out on the open seas. The food was plentifull and very good throughout the entire week. While this was our first live-aboard trip, the rest of the passengers were seasoned veterens and had been on many exotic live-aboard destinations all over the world. We were extremely excited to be on a trip where the focus was eat, sleep & dive!! The trip was a failure from a dive diversity standpoint from the fact that the captain refused to move the ship around to various dive locations due to concerns of weather although the seas were absolutely calm! I feel the captain was fairly new to the area and the boat so he was in essence way over cautious given the great weather. The concensus of the entire guest aboard was displeasure due to lack of various sites visited. The captain reduced the whole value of a live-aboard dive vessel down to a pathetic few dive sites.
