Cat Ppalu, Bahamas


The sleek and stylish Cat Ppalu catamaran is perfect for groups, families, and friends to explore the Bahamas above and below the water. Accommodating up to 12 guests, the Cat Ppalu liveaboard has 6 private cabins, 4 double beds, and 2 with single beds. Each cabin is fully air-conditioned with a sink and mirror, and two bathrooms with freshwater showers are for all to share. There is a large dining area with ample space for all guests to sit around family-style to enjoy the cuisine and conversation. Three meals per day and snacks will be served, and special dietary requirements can be taken care of with advance notice. The large trampoline at the forward area is a great place to catch some rays and enjoy the magnificent Bahamian scenery.

The low draft of the Cat Ppalu allows easy anchorage at uninhabited islands for the chance of exploration and enjoying the many watersports on offer. Departing Nassau every Saturday, the Cat Ppalu offers 6-night all-inclusive adventure to the Exuma Cays, with up to 19 dives on offer. Walls, Blue Holes, drift diving, and up-close shark action are on the agenda, as well as plenty of non-diving activities. Whether snorkeling the crystal clear waters of Norman's Plane Wreck, kayaking through mangroves, mastering your SUP skills, or following the hiking trails, there is something for everyone aboard the Cat Ppalu Bahamas.

In the capable hands of the captain and crew, guests can sit back, relax and unwind in the Bahamas. Call us or book online today to reserve your space.

The crew were outstanding and the food was delicious. Very flexible to cater for everyone's needs regarding land excursions and diving. Visiting pig beach and the sand bars in Exuma Cays was a nice touch. Would definitely recommend this boat if you really want the all round best of exumas.

Martyna keeping the A/C and the boat working. Chelle guiding our dives and pointing out things we missed. Couldn't have asked for a better trip.

Familär, flexibel und professionell!

Die Highlights war auf jeden Fall das die Crew des Cat Ppalu eine reine Mädels-Crew war. Das Quartett hatte alles im Griff und machte uns die Woche zur besten Überhaupt! Tauchgänge an schönen und bunten Riffen mit vielen Fischen und immer wieder auch Riffhaien und Rochen. Die exzellenten Gourmet-Speisen und die lustige Gesellschaft rundete dies perfekt ab.
