There was a nice area on the dive deck for your cameras with clean rinse
tanks near by and an air hose to dry cameras before opening.  Worked well
for all.

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.
