Saturday June 2nd

If it’s Saturday it’s time for another week of Adventure on the Belize Aggressor IV diving the waters around Belize. After guest boarded and settled in the Belize Aggressor IV departed her home dock at the Radisson and made way to Long Caye and her first dive site called Long Caye Wall.

Sunday June 3rd

Long Caye Wall is where our underwater adventure began. There was no need to travel any long distance because the Belize Aggressor IV made the smooth ride from Belize City to the guest first dive site while they enjoyed a relaxing evening. However now it was time to make some bubbles. Long Caye Wall is an excellent site to start for those who haven’t been in the water for a while the top of the wall is shallow and for those who her ready they can venture just over the wall to explore. No matter which group divers were in we saw lot of Marine Life. Just some of what we saw while diving this Sunday Morning was Black Coral Shrimp, Yellowheaded Jawfish, Spotted Drums, Caribbean Spiny Lobsters, Spotted and Green Moray Eels, Large Barracuda, Caribbean Reef Sharks and Spotted Eagle Rays. Nice way to start a Sunday Morning. For the afternoon and Night we moved to Dos Chichas and encountered, more Barracuda’s, Big Tarpons, Schools of Jack and Chubs just under the vessel, Nurse and Reef Sharks, Lobsters, Free Swimming Green Moray Eel, Spotted Eagle Rays and Octopus.

Monday June 4th

Monday no suits, no ties no shoes, just warm clear water to explore. The first site to explore was Half Moon Caye Wall. Half Moon Caye has an Amazing Underwater World. The top of the wall and the wall itself is covered with Colorful Corals and Sponges. Several types of Schooling Tropical Fish, Friendly Nassau and Black Groupers, Reef Sharks, Pipefish, Flounders, Huge Loggerhead Turtles and Spotted Eagle Rays. Eagle Ray Wall was our next stop swimming with Hawksbill Turtles, Ballonfish, Spotted Spiny and Caribbean Spiny Lobsters, Channel Clinging Crabs. A few other types of Marine Life we saw were Thorny Atlantic Thorny Oysters, Huge Green Moray out and about, Nurse and Caribbean Reef Sharks.

Tuesday June 5th

Chain Wall was number one today. Swimming along Chain Wall it’s easy to spot Colorful Sponges, Sea Whips, Mackerel, Schooling Creole Wrasses, Caribbean Spiny Lobsters, Flounders, Ocean and Queen Triggerfish, Reef Sharks and one Huge Loggerhead Turtle. Our afternoon and night dives were at Aquarium. This site got it’s name because it is like swimming inside your Aquarium with an Array of tropical Fish, Big Tarpon, Barracuda that get up-close and personal, Hawksbill Turtles, Spotted and Green Moray Eels, Sharks and some of the Biggest Channel Clinging Crabs in the Area.

 

Wednesday June 6th

It’s been a while but now we have a new mooring in a dive site called Site X. Just off a Man-Made Island called Hat Caye site a Very Colorful Dive Site. It got its name from guest several years ago and just never changed. Yes there is a Site Y. But Site X was our first stop on the Wednesday Morning and it’s nothing short of Amazing. Just some of the Marine Life We saw was Arrow Blennies, Spotted Juvenile Drums, Spotfin Burrfish, Juvenile Slender Filefish and Mantis Shrimp. As one guest said when coming up the ladder after the dive, “That Was Just Beautiful” another said “Amazing”. After spending an “Amazing dive on a site that was Just Beautiful we made our way to Cathedral for the afternoon and night.   The top of the wall was covered with a huge variety of Corals, Schooling Fish, Spotted Drums, Green and Spotted Moray Eels, 17 Big Tarpon Schooling around some of us. Except for the Huge Channel Clinging Crabs and Octopus several of us enjoyed watching two Caribbean Reef Sharks Hunt for something along the wall. They were trying there best to get something out from under a small ledge and would let us near to see what it was. They di swim near us to make sure we got a close up and personal to see just how and why Sharks are Awesome. They were Big, Beautiful, Sleek and Powerful yet swam around us peaceful.

 Thursday June 7th

The Famous Blue Hole is where we started our Thursday. Divers enjoyed a little Marine Life around the top of the hole but the best part of this dive is swimming around the Huge Stalagmite and Stalactite that founded on the wall so many years ago. Quebrada was our afternoon and night dive site. Because of the large variety of Marine Life Quebrada is one of the crew’s favorite dive sites to visit. Some of what we saw was Channel Clinging Crabs, Banded Coral Shrimp, Shortfinger Neck Crab, Frond Oysters, Rough Fileclams, Atlantic Thorny Oysters, Green Moray Eel, Spotted Moray Eel and Goldentail Moray Eel, Schooling Tarpon under the vessel, Squid and Octopus.

Friday June 8th

Our final dive site for the week is Sandy Slope. This site is a nursery for fish and other Marine Life. Just a few things we encountered were Juvenile Ocean Surgeonfish, Juvenile Cocoa Damselfish, Hogfish, Atlantic Trumpetfish, Small Spotted Moray Eel, Hawksbill Turtle and Spotted Eagle Ray. A Very Nice Friday Morning!!
