    Does anyone know if they have DIN valves available on the Belize Aggressor III?

    I don't want to pack my adapter if I don't have to.

    I don’t think they had any when we were there in August 2018, but I’m pretty sure my wife forgot hers so they might have one now:wink:

    I would go straight to the source and just reach out by email. They are usually quite responsive.

    Even if they do, do you want to take a chance they might get an unusual number of DIN divers in a group from a nation where that's the standard, for example? They'll only have so many tanks.

    I found an Aggressor Fleet page on Nitrox, Rentals and Dive Equipment Loaner Program. It doesn't mention any specific boat. It says: "Yachts are equipped with 80 cu. ft. aluminum tanks. A few 60 cu. ft. tanks are available upon request.
    Tanks have “K” valves for use with standard yoke regulators. “DIN” and “J” valves are not used."

    So you can double-check with them direct, but even if they happen to say they can do DIN, you might want to take your adaptor anyway.

    Thanks everyone. The reason I asked here was the answer I got via official channels can be best summarized as "don't know".

    The actual answer is NO they don't have DIN. They do have a few AL 100s though.
