Second trip on the Aqua Cat and positively impressed by the quality of
service, facilities, and crew.  Deserves rating as one of the best live
aboards regardless of location.  Dove the Exumas and Eleuthera so sites
were not "over dived" and fish and critters plentiful.  Able to
do 5 dives per day, including night dives. Good selection of wall dives
offering variety at depth as well as a more leisure pace atop the wall.
Favorite dive sites included a shark feed dive and several "high
speed" drift dives. Crew maintains a positive attitude, places an
emphasis on diver safety, and treats divers as responsible guests. Boat
well maintained and cabins roomy and clean.  Large salon and dining area
able to easily accommodate all divers at one seating. Lots of hot water and
adjustable AC thermostats in each cabin. Deserving of special mention is
Chef Kirk who does an outstanding job of preparing and presenting tasty
meals and snacks. Overall, excellent value for money!
