Saturday July 27th
After a long day of traveling guest boarded the Belize Aggressor IV for a week of Exploring and Relaxing around the Belize Islands of Turneffe Caye, Long Caye and Half Moon Caye.
Sunday July 28th
The seas were calm and sky clear as the Belize Aggressor IV departed her home dock at the Radisson Marina for her first dive site called Sandy Slope located just of Turneffe Caye. While getting weights and buoyancy turned in we enjoyed seeing Slit-Pore Sea Rods, Southern Stingrays, Wide-Mesh Sea Fans, Rough Fileclams, Neck Crabs, Spotted Moray Eels and Pipefish. Next stop was the island of Long Caye and the dive site called Julies Jungle where divers swam with Free Swimming Green Moray Eel, Caribbean Spiny Lobsters, Southern and Roughtail Stingrays, Honeycomb Cowfish, Spotted Moray Eels, Octopuses and Squids.
Monday July 29th
First stop on the Bright and Sunny Monday Morning was Half Moon Caye Wall. We always enjoy this dive site because of the Variety of Marine Life we see while underwater. Just some of what divers encountered were Sailfin and Arrow Blennies, Friendly Nassau Groupers, Schools of Créole Wrasses, Huge Channel Clinging Crabs, Southern and Yellow Stingrays, Caribbean Reef Sharks and Spotted Eagle Rays. Our afternoon was on Eagle Ray Wall where we encountered more Spotted Eagle Rays, Caribbean and Spanish Slipper Lobsters, Peppermint Gobies, Green Morays, Octopus, Squids and a Huge Loggerhead Turtle.
Tuesday July 30th
Lighthouse Wall was first today. It’s been a while since I have been on Lighthouse Wall so I was looking forward to spending some time underwater here. Just some of the Marine Life spotted here was Orangespotted Filefish, Roughtail Stingrays, several Hawksbill Turtles, Spotted Eagle Ray and Two Juvenile Caribbean Reef Sharks that stayed close to us for mist of the dives. Long Caye Wall was our afternoon and night dive site. Diving Long Caye Wall is always nice with Schools of Grunts, Snappers, Spiny Brittle Stars, Lettuce Slug, Porcupinefish, Flamingo Tongues, Feeding Tarpons, Octopuses and Squids.
Wednesday July 31st
Our dive sites we explored today were Chain Wall and Cathedral. Between the two sites we saw a diversity of Corals like Colorful Sea Whips, Common Sea Fans, Dimpled Sheet Corals, Atlantic Mushroom Corals. Other Creatures and Fish like Neck Crabs, Banded Coral Shrimps, Caribbean Spiny Lobsters one inside a Huge Barrel Sponge, Friendly Groupers, Spotted Eagle Ray, Squids, Octopus and a Hawksbill Turtle Eating and Not Worried about anyone next to her.
Thursday August 1st
It was a Picture Perfect Day to dive one of the Most Famous Dive Sites in the World, The Blue Hole. Divers from all over the world visit the Blue Hole to see its Huge Stalagmite and Stalactite. However if you go slow and look closely along the rim of the hole we found Caribbean Lobsters, Stingrays, Several Types of Parrotfishes, Pipefish and even a Caribbean Reek Sharks swam by for a look. After enjoying the perfect day at the Blue Hole The Belize Aggressor IV made her way to Turneffe Caye and the dive site called Black Beauty. It’s been a while since we have last been to Black Beauty just off the Southern Tip of Turneffe Caye, so the staff was excited about getting back thee. While exploring this Amazing Dive Site we swam along side and near Knobby Cactus Corals, Clubtip Finger Corals, Encrusting Gorgonians, Encountered Southern & Huge Roughtail Stingrays, Black Duron’s, Queen Angelfish, Tiger and Nassau Groupers, Huge Channel Clinging Crabs, Small Neck Crabs, Spotted Moray and Free Swimming Green Moray Eels, Squids, Octopus and Whitespotted Toadfish. Guest April said it best “Best Night Dive Ever!!”
Friday August 2nd
Our final dive site was Amberhead where we saw Tobaccofish, Rainbow Parrotfishes, French and Queen Angelfishes, Several Green Moray Eels one out free swimming and Octopus. Which was a nice way to end a week of Excellent Diving on the Belize Aggressor IV.
