The Sun Dancer II liveaboard in Belize

These liveaboard safaris depart from Belize City, ideally taking in the south of Turneffe Reef, Long Caye, the Blue Hole and Half Moon Caye at Lighthouse Reef. Nitrox is available so you can maximize your time underwater, and there is 5m 'deco bar' to assist scuba divers make their safety stops. These are especially useful when you consider that the Sun Dancer makes up to 5 dives per day.

Photographers will appreciate the charging station, camera rinse tanks and camera table. The non-slip dive deck also features a toilet and hot showers for those who like to rinse off soon after surfacing. All divers are welcomed back onboard the boat after a dive with hot towels and fresh orange slices.

Most of the cabins on the main deck - each with a large seaview window, en-suite bathroom, flat screen LCD TV and DVD player, and air-conditioning. Bed arrangements are double or twin; there are no cramped bunk bed cabins on this boat.

The saloon features full entertainment facilities: TV, DVD, music system, PC and Mac. Wine and beer are complimentary onboard. There is also plenty of reading material, both marine and general interest. Considered one of the most spacious of the fleet, Sun Dancer II has plenty of room in which to relax including the sun deck, shaded upper deck and air conditioned saloon.

To dive Belize in liveaboard luxury and style, the Sun Dancer II is a great option.

Customer reviews: 

"I felt pampered with all the service. They would not even let me get my own hot towel after a dive, they had to get it and wrap it around my shoulders." - Don Ostapovitch, Australia ...

"Staff were excellent - a very good liveaboard crew. Facilities were good, nitrox fills consistent and dive site choice good. The strongest criticism I would have is that I don't believe that open water divers should be qualified on liveaboards." - Su Thomas, British Virgin Islands ...

"We were very impressed with the Sun Dancer liveaboard in Belize. Boat, diving and service was excellent. We go on such trips to do a lot of diving and that is what they offer...5 dives a day on most days if conditions allow." - Roz Haines, United Kingdom ...
