TOP DIVE SITES VISITED by the AGGRESSOR FLEET's BELIZE AGGRESSOR IV:
There are three atolls located offshore beyond the barrier. The most famous of the atolls is Lighthouse Reef, which is the location of the Blue Hole & the magnificent nature preserve at Half Moon Cay.
- The world-famous Blue Hole is an encounter with huge stalactites formed thousands of years ago. Measuring about 1,000 feet in diameter & more than 400 feet deep, you can dive among the stalactites at a depth of 110 to 130 feet. This is a very memorable dive; one you will be telling friends about for many years to come.
- At Half Moon Caye Wall, Hawksbill turtles & Spotted Eagle Rays are regular sights & there are some of the most spectacular sponge formations found anywhere.
- The Elbow, located on Turneffe Islands Atoll is one of Belize's most exciting & fish filled dive experiences. Enormous schools of jacks are often sighted in the blue water.
- Along the shallow side of a mid-reef at southern Turneffe is The Sayonara, a broken up shipwreck of a small island freighter. The Sayonara is an excellent site for seeing a variety of marine life, including the rare Lined Toadfish found only in Belize.
- At Aquarium, very large Black Groupers, Green Morays, Caribbean Octopus & Midnight Parrotfish are among the reef's inhabitants.
