Item Description

Eat, Sleep and DIVE!
Enjoy the LiveAboard Lifestyle aboard
the Belize Aggressor IV!


Welcome to Belize! Belize is a wall diver's paradise. Sheer walls like Painted Wall, Half Moon Caye Wall and Quebrada are adorned with huge crimson gorgonians and giant orange elephant ear sponges. 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.

The Belize Aggressor IV is a 138? yacht with a wide 26? beam. Built and powered for comfort, safety and stability, she is diesel-powered, cruises at 12 knots and has 110-volt power onboard. Accommodations include 8 deluxe staterooms with two twin beds or one king bed and 2 master staterooms with one queen bed. All staterooms have climate controls.

The Belize Aggressor IV sleeps 20 guests in privacy and comfort. She features a roomy, air-conditioned salon and dining area, sun deck with lounge and deck chairs, outdoor sound system, shaded cocktail deck, grill, and a photo editing computer for guests. Diving amenities include individual dive lockers, camera table with low-pressure air hoses, and two hot, fresh water showers.

There is a variety of nightly entertainment, including diving, fish identification presentations, movies, games and more. If you have a favorite movie or digital presentation to share, we encourage you to bring it along. The staff especially loves new releases of movies, recent magazines and books. A small library of books for exchange is maintained onboard as well as fish identification books for reference.
