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.

Guests will be met by a crew member in uniform at the Belize City (BZE) International Airport and transferred to the yachts. Guests may board Saturday between 3 pm – 6 pm. At 6 pm, the yacht departs for its night anchorage to prepare for diving Sunday morning. After a full week of diving, the Belize Aggressor III or IV returns back to the Radisson Ft. George docks in Belize City Friday afternoon after lunch. Check-out is Saturday morning at 8 am. Transportation is provided back to the Belize City International Airport Saturday morning.
Every Saturday at 6 pm, the luxurious Belize Aggressor casts off from the Radisson Ft. George docks for liveaboard scuba diving, 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.
Belize liveaboard scuba diving begins Sunday morning and ends Friday before lunch when the Belize Aggressor III or 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 treetops. Tours are offered on Friday afternoon, but an extended stay is recommended to fully enjoy the wonders of Belize and its corner of the Caribbean. Guests may enjoy the Radisson Ft. George Hotel pool and bar area free of charge on Saturday.
