It was a sunny breezy afternoon as guest boarded the Belize Aggressor IV for a week of Exploring the Underwater World of Turneffe Caye, Half Moon Caye and Long Caye, Belize.
Sunday October 28th
After enjoying a quite night at the dock the Belize Aggressor IV departed her home dock at the Radisson Marina and made the short journey to our first dive site off Turneffe Caye called Amberhead. The first dive of the week is the most important dive, making sure equipment is working, getting your weights correct for good buoyancy, camera systems are all working correctly and looking for lots of Marine Life to get the week started. Amberhead was perfect this morning, some of what we had a chance to enjoy was Tube Corals, Sunray Lettuce Corals, Grooved-Blade Sea Whips, Magnificent Feather Dusters, Scarlet-Striped Cleaner Shrimps, Nassau and Tiger Groupers, French Angelfish and Spotted Moray Eels. Next stop while at Turneffe Caye was Black Beauty swimming with Schooling Creole Wrasses, Flamingo Tongues, Channel Clinging Crabs, Pederson Cleaner Shrimps, Queen, Gray and French Angelfish, Green Moray Eels, Octopuses and White Spotted Toadfish.
Monday October 29th
The Belize Aggressor IV spends the day in the Marine Park around the Island of Half Moon Caye. The dive sites that we visited were Half Moon Caye Wall and Chain Wall. Because we were diving inside a marine park nothing is allow to be taking which allows the Marine Life to grow.
