Comments The Good news: The 22 year old Aquacat is still, IMHO, the finest liveaboard diving platform in the world. We had a group of 21 Club Ed members, many of which were back for their second or third Aquacat adventure. The Aquacat had a crew of 11 professional eager-to-please members.
Captain Tim ordered in pristine weather and averted 90% of rocky seas. This man KNOWS how to drive a ship!
First Mate, Second Captain Morgan deftly piloted the Sea Dog (26' diesel jet power).
