Comments This trip was everything and more than I expected. The crew we had on this liveaboard were awesome. They all seemed to care about the divers without being in your face all the time. They enjoyed mingling with the divers in the evenings and at meal times. The crew headed by Captain Ron had everything under control and were very accomodating. Our airport transfers were smooth and went without a hitch.
Everyone was able to dive their own profiles and 100cu ft tanks were available. We were diving Nitrox and had bottom times of over 1 1/2 hours...never a complaint by the crew. The diving was almost always at different dive sites.
The food on the trip was wonderful! Chef Kent did a great job. We never went hungry. Snacks were available all day in between meals.
I would, without hesitation, dive with the Aqua Cat again.
