Saturday November 25th
It was a sunny day with a slight breeze when guest boarded the Belize Aggressor for a week of diving. After guest settled in, they enjoyed a smooth night with a sky full of stars as we departed our home dock at the Radisson for Long Caye.
Sunday November 26th
Our first dive site was Julies Jungle, where while doing our checkout dive we encountered Caribbean Spiny Lobsters, Spotted Moray Eels, Several Hawksbill Turtles and a Huge Loggerhead Turtle. It was the perfect dive site to adjust weight, work on buoyancy and made sure camera equipment was working correctly. After Julies Jungle we made our way to Silver Caves. We only thought the first dive site was awesome, Silver Caves were even better. Just some of what we saw while diving Silver Caves was Arrow Blennies, Banded Coral Shrimp, Big Tarpon, a very small Hawksbill Turtle, Octopus and a few guests saw a Hammerhead Shark cruising the wall. It was a Nice day of diving on the Belize Aggressor IV.
Monday November 27th
We started our Monday bubble time off with a visit to Lighthouse Wall where we saw, Yellowhead Jawfish, Arrow Blennies, Reef Sharks, Southern Stingrays and Hawksbill Turtles. Our next dive site was Half Moon Caye Wall swimming with Schools of Jacks, Creole Wrasses, Angelfish, Trumpetfish, Reef Sharks and Eaglerays.
Tuesday November 28th
Because we had to cancel our night dive last night, we did something a little different this morning; it was a pre-breakfast dive on Half Moon Caye Wall. It turned out great watching the reef wake up is always a good way to start the day. During breakfast we moved to Eagle Ray Wall. WOW, didn’t think the morning could get better but it did, Sharks, Rays, Huge Lobsters and Spotted Eagle Rays. The weather changed on us so we changed our island. While guest enjoyed a wonderful lunch we made our way to Turneffe Island and the dive site called Johnny’s Wrench. While underwater at Johnny’s wrench we saw a huge array of Gorgonians, Plate Corals, Mackerel, Stingrays, and Whitespotted Toadfish.
Wednesday November 29th
This morning first on the list was Grand Bogue diving with Groupers, Snappers, Trumpetfish, Triggerfish, Green Turtles, Octopus and Squid. The Front Porch was next seeing Spotted Drums, Octopus, Toadfish, Squid and Eagle Rays.
Thursday November 30th
We had such a variety at a couple of dive sites we decided; today we revisited Johnny’s Wrench and Grand Bogue. It was perfect seeing free swimming Green Moray Eels, Spotted Moray Eels, Mackerel, Large Groupers, Spotted Toadfish and an undersea garden of hard and soft corals.
Friday December 1st
We finished our week with early morning dives on the Front Porch. I really like this dive site. There is so much Marine Life available for us to see and enjoy. During the morning we saw Turtles, Toadfish, Channel Clinging Crabs, Octopus, Mackerel and Spotted Eagle Rays. Excellent Dive Site To Finish A Wonderful Week Of Diving On The Belize Aggressor IV.
