Great, this was our first. Not sure if we’ll do another on. For 7,000 we can go to different islands and do a lot of diving.

Meeting new people. Experience a live aboard. We love the water. Wee enjoy being on boats. The food was great. The crew was wonderful. One complaint is some were so slow about getting ready. To dive and getting into the water , for us that we’re going with guide we would have to wait and wait. If crew could somehow speed those up kindly would have been nice.

Best things about this trip were the attention to detail and safety by the Captain Sam and his crew. The crew was entertaining, knowledgeable about all things related to diving, and very friendly and welcoming. The chef and staff served delicious and plentiful home-cooked meals...breakfast, lunch and dinner. Every meal was fabulous!

Amazing experience!!

This trip was amazing!! The crew was very fun, helpful and professional at diving. The trip has many other activities planned aside from diving which I also appreciated a lot. It was a great first liveaboard. The food was also surprisingly great! Diverse and plentiful.

As advertised, I highly recommend the AquaCat crew for a wonderful liveabord experience.

Need to give credit to all the crew, very attentive, everything was always on-time, no downtime or waiting around for things to get done! Very clean and very well-maintained ship, plenty or fresh water and hot water 24-7! Meals and snacks consistently exceeded expectations. Shark feeding and the occasional reef shark cruising by unannounced on subsequent dives was great! The washing machine and blue hole are must bucket list items.

The crew, boat and dive sites are all fantastic. Most of the dive sites could not have been reached if not for a liveaboard.

Exceeded expectations!

Okay, the one downside was the smell of the head coming from the toilet water in Cabin 1 towards the end of the trip. We kept it clean in there, so it wasn’t us guys being messy. Otherwise, everything was spectacular, especially getting to do this with my two sons. The crew was exceptional! The variety and quality of food was excellent. Dive sites were very nice as were the excursions.

One of the most memorable of liveaboard dives.

Variety of diving experiences throughout the southern Bahamas / Exumas. So much to see. Lots of marine life, and great diversity of underwater landscapes. The land excursions were also fun (especially the swimming pigs).
