About Belize Aggressor

Belize is famous amongst scuba divers as it is home to the second largest barrier reef in the world - so you are guaranteed mind blowing diving on opulent walls. Famous father of scuba diving Jacques Cousteau declared Belize one of the top ten scuba diving destinations... what better recommendation could you need for your next scuba diving liveaboard holiday! But with such a huge expanse of possible sites, only a Belize liveaboard will ensure you dive all the hot spots in one voyage of perfection. And who better to sail away with than the undisputed experts in the region - the Belize Aggressor IV. This Belize liveaboard holiday has all of the luxury touches that you would expect from this world famous fleet.

The Belize Aggressor IV sleeps 20 guests in 10 cabins. All have air con, en suite and private TV/DVD but there are 2 cabin grades to chose from. There are 7 deluxe cabins on the main deck that have a double bed or twin beds. There is one further deluxe cabin on the same level as the master - this can be arranged as a twin or king double. The master cabin has a larger queen sized double bed making it ideal if you want to treat yourself to a cabin that is that bit extra special.

The Belize Aggressor IV has been completely refitted to meet the discerning standards of modern divers, the Belize Aggressor has a large sun deck with sunny and shady areas. If you like more action between dives, borrow a kayak or fishing gear. The jacuzzi is always popular after the day's diving as is the boat bar and BBQ. Fancy watching a movie between dives or checking out your shots? Make a beeline for the saloon. The dive deck is large, spacious and well designed so everyone has room to kit up in comfort. The camera table stows all those bulky cases as well as being a safe area to set up in. No one is forgotten on this boat!

Master Stateroom

Double bed, private head and shower, closet, port window, individual climate control, monitor with media player and hair dryer.

Deluxe Stateroom
