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.
