Hi all...

With so many of you returning from your recent trips to AC, can someone give me an idea of the current water temperatures? I understand that about a month ago, it was below normal. We have been told to expect water temps around 81 degrees +/- 2 degrees. Sound about right? We leave Saturday, March 29, for the Belize Aggressor, then an extension on Ambergris Caye April 5-8. Can't Wait!!!!! laugh cool smile laugh

Yup! I'd say the 80's are about it. Is this your first time?

If so, you just have a heck of a wonderful time. Where are you going?

Water temp was around 81 when I left on Mar.2.

A fish and a bird can fall in love, but where will they build their nest?

Yes, this is our first time to Belize. After utilizing all of the generously given information on this message board, we decided that the Mayan Princess fit our bill for our extension. We love live-aboard diving, but after a week of daily Breakfast/Dive/Snack/Dive/Lunch/Dive/Snack/Dive/Dinner/Dive, well, we are generally a bit tired. We really look forward to our extensions. It allows us to see a bit of the country who's waters we have been privileged to visit, as well as the ability to slow down and relax. We do not like to plan on more dives during that time, but invariably we end up getting in a few more tanks. If this is the case again in AC, we will be using Amigos Del Mar.

We have been very lucky to go on some wonderful vacations in the past. However, this year has been quite awful for us, so as the light of our vacation nears, it has literally brightened up our lives. This is not the time or the place to dwell on our recent angsts, but please know that this message board has provided a mini-vacation for me every day. It is truly amazing how thinking about something so positive everyday, can help one to keep drudging though life's obstacles.

A big Thank You goes out to all board members smile

Hi Albatross! Well, AC ought to help you rest up. Be sure to write an update when you get back. I've always wondered what those liveaboards are like. Have a great and restful time.

Just returned on March 15th. The water temp on most of our dives was 82 to 84 degrees. The exception was Blue Hole where we experienced 77 degrees, but we were down at 154 feet so we were not there long. We saw the live-aboard aggressor several times out at the atolls and outer cayes, so I'm sure they were putting their divers in at the same sites we visited.

Have fun!
