Donna we do not recommend particular flights into Belize City (airport code BZE) - you can make your own flight reservations OR have Kamala arrange your itinerary for you for a modest $31 Flight Assistance Fee. Based on the flight itinerary you book (or have SingleDivers.com book) we coordinate with the liveaboard operator and let you know the procedure for the ground transportation which is included in the trip package price. :diver:

Kamala will check with her operator contacts - this early something should be able to be arranged.

 

As for what qualifies as big lungs; I'm not taking the bait. :teeth: :diver:

 

P. S. Be sure to mention this in the Comments portion of the Special Needs Form when the time comes, just to be sure....

The boat may have 1 or 2 larger 100 cf tanks. We do try and reserve them for um... 'big lunged' people! LOL!  So you'll be on the list of possibilities Jeff! LOL!

Brad when you get a chance lets set up a special request area for both bit and small tanks. :thankyou:

So I am only OW certified with single digit dives. Enrolled in AOW but temps dropped to fast here to complete ocean portion. Would you recommend this dive or suggest waiting for a later one after I complete my AOW?

I would really like to do the Big Blue but if that’s going to be an impossibility I would like to know ahead of time.

Thanks!

Hey Seamus... will you get any add'l dives under your belt before the trip? How comfortable are you in the water? Typical man in water or a fish who just got his first bc and tank and feel as if you are finally home?  You can call me to discuss further at 8645576079 but single digit dives and OW qualifies you to 60 ft. Diving to 120 is really challenging but not impossible. Let's talk if you like?  Kamala

Any docs we need to fill out for the boat?

 

I found this on the Aggressor website:

 

GIS (GUEST INFORMATION SYSTEM)

The Reservations Office, Belize Aggressor III and Belize Aggressor IV require each guest to complete a Cruise Application and Waiver prior to departure and diving through our online GIS (Guest Information System). If you have not received a link to complete the online Guest Information System (GIS), please call an Aggressor Liveaboards agent. Passengers who fail to complete it online will be denied boarding.

 

 

Do we need to reach out to Aggressor directly to get this "link"?

Jose Great Question!

 

When Kamala makes the final reservations she distributes the link from Aggressor Fleet via the Trip PM and if needed the Trips Inbox; at that time Aggressor will recognize all attendees as properly registered with them for the trip. Please do NOT attempt using the GIS link before we issue the link via the Trip PM.
