Itinerary

Divnig BelizeBelize is a wall diver's paradise. Sheer walls like Painted Wall, Half Moon Caye Wall and Quebrada are adorned with huge crimson gorgonians and giant orange elephant ear sponges. Moray eels, spiny lobsters and tiny arrow crabs hide in every crack, crevice, cave and tunnels of these beautiful coral formations. These are just a few things you will see at Lighthouse Reef, Half Moon Cay and Turneffe Reef.

Every Saturday at 6 pm, the luxurious Belize Aggressor IV (formerly Sun Dancer II) casts off from the Radisson Ft. George dock, located in the heart of downtown Belize City for a week of hassle-free diving to Lighthouse Reef, Half Moon Cay and the famous Blue Hole. The mystical Blue Hole, a collapsed freshwater cave system is approximately 1000 feet across and over 400 feet deep. The Blue Hole was made famous by ocean pioneer Jacques-Yves Cousteau who declared it one of the Top Ten Dive Sites in the World. In 1971, he brought his ship, the Calypso, to the Blue Hole to chart its depths. Once descended into the Blue Hole guests will see beautiful vertical stalactite formations. 

Diving begins Sunday morning and ends Friday before lunch when the Belize Aggressor IV returns to port. Sunday through Thursday there is unlimited diving throughout the day and a night dive each evening.  Friday a half day of diving is offered. A trip to this Central American paradise isn’t complete without a visit to Belize’s Mayan ruins, a cave tubing ride through the jungle, or a canopy tour through the tree tops. Tours are offered on Friday afternoon, but an extended stay is recommended to fully enjoy the wonders of Belize. Guests may enjoy the Radisson Ft. George Hotel pool facility and bar area on Saturday free of charge.

Diving in Belize
Belize is home to the world’s second largest barrier reef, ancient Mayan Ruins, spectacular rivers, rainforests and wildlife. It has three of the only four true coral atolls found in the hemisphere. The marine life that inhabits the barrier reef is extraordinary and diverse. It includes everything from schools of tarpon, turtles and stingrays to a wide variety of tropical species, and  of course, the famous Blue Hole.   

The Blue Hole is a collapsed freshwater cave system that is approximately 1000 feet across and over 400 feet deep. It was made world famous by ocean pioneer Jacques - Yves Cousteau
