May 4 - 11, 2024
Join Blue Crew and Everette as we travel to Belize for a 7 day liveaboard on the Aggressor III yacht from May 6-13, 2023.
Belize just NEVER DISSAPOINTS! Every time we go, it is absolutely first class Carribean diving. On one night dive, chris spent over 30 minutes playing hide and seek with an octopus (and if you know Chris, you know night dives are not his jam, but on this night, it was worth it).
Throughout the week you will dive at Turneffe and Lighthouse Reef. Sheer walls like Painted Wall, Half Moon Caye Wall and Quebrada are adorned with huge crimson gorgonians and wandering, lilac rope sponges. Weather permitting; divers explore the mystical Blue Hole, a collapsed freshwater cave system. With all dives from the mother ship, up to five dives a day are offered except on Friday. Diving begins Sunday morning and ends Friday before lunch when the yachts return to port.
From Eagle Rays to reef sharks and all the traditional Caribbean fare, each dive will bring eciting reef and wall dives. Keep an eye out for big black groupers, swirling schools of horse eyed jacks and hawksbill or green sea turtles. One of the biggest turtles we have ever seen was here in Belize on a liveabord. Don't fotget the reef itself, you'll see large baffle sponges, giant, deep-water sea fans, and the richest collection of deep-water gorgonians almost anywhere in the world. Giant elephant ear sponges, yellow tube sponges, and azure vase sponges make this a very colorful area. And of course the tops of all the walls are just teeming with marine life.
The Belize Aggressor III is a 110 ft. yacht with a wide beam. Built and powered for comfort, safety and stability, she is diesel-powered, cruises at 10 knots and has 110-volt power onboard. Diving amenities include individual dive lockers, camera table with low-pressure air hoses, and two hot, fresh water showers.

There is a variety of nightly entertainments, including diving, fish identification presentations, movies, games and more. If you have a favorite movie or digital presentation we encourage you to bring it along. The staff especially loves new releases of movies, recent magazines and books. A small library of books for exchange is maintained onboard as well as fish identification books for reference.
Throughout the week there will be opportunities to go ashore for swimming, snorkeling, and beach combing.
