Comments Great ship, great crew, great captain, great diving. No shortage of excursions for non-divers or those wanting to sit out a dive - I skipped one to free dive with the Captain for lobsters, others went fishing, to beaches, historical locations, etc... There was absolutely no reason to be bored, but the boat was more than spacious enough that I was always able to find a quiet spot to relax.

Before leaving, I read here that the captain and crew pushed for tips. I found that this was not the case. Tipping was mentioned in the briefing as it is on all dive boats, but there was no pressure to tip beyond your comfort level.

I have absolutely no reservations in recommending the Aqua Cat for any level of diver. I look forward to return trips.
