Great diving in a relaxed environment

The Aquacat is a well ran boat with a knowledgeable crew. Captain Ron was in command and his overall knowledge of the Bahamian Islands chains allowed for seven days of rain free diving. Prepare to be spoiled when it comes to being fed onboard as Chef Kelly planned and prepared seven days of succulent feasting. The Aquacat is well maintained and although it is not super fancy it does have everything you need to be safe and comfortable during a week of exciting dives including an organized shark feeding session. Having a fantastic reverse osmosis water purification system spoils you with not only a great source of drinking water, but better yet hot showers in the cool Bahamian spring weather! Overall the boat is ran by a professional company that has the logistic knowledge to deal with most situations. I highly recommend the Aquacat as is every bit as enjoyable as the reviews I had read when researching this vacation.

Kudos to you for allowing anonfor profit resercher (Nikita) to use your boat to get to her research sites. That is a tremendous reccomendation and I will mention it when I review you on trip advisor.

Best dive trip EVER!

This was one of the best experiences our family has ever had. The crew was amazingly friendly and knowledgeable. The boat was spotless, service was impeccable, food was over the top and the diving was great. Really cannot complain about anything. 4-5 dives a day offered, the BEST divemasters that took great care of everyone. Had tons of knowledge of all the dive spots. The meals were gourmet. We had a fun international group of divers that have become friends, sharing a common passion of diving. Well worth every penny spent. Would highly recommend the Aquacat if you're looking for a diving adventure like none other!

Great diving experience in the Exumas!

Making new friends and dive in great dive sites with them were the greatest highlights. Also got to see my first ever Great Hammerhead in a dive site called Goombay Reef, wich was a major plus.

Best liveaboard experience so far. I have been on about 4 other liveaboards.

Iron diver award for myself and wife. Hawksbill turtle that was like a pet with great photos from Virginia. Virginia was a fantastic photographer. We told her up front that we were buying the photos. This is the first trip I did not bring an underwater camera (900 dives) because I wanted lots of photos of my wife and I. The photos that were extra were just full of great photos of us. A special thanks to her.
