Great setup for cameras in middle of dive deck, plenty of room. Crew always
there on ladders to help with cameras and place in large rinse tanks.
Dedicated area on dive deck for battery charging. Well thought out.

The Aquacat is a well thought out boat for diving. Cabins had some of the
most space I've seen. Dive deck had plenty of room for gear, never seemed
crowded(we had 22 divers). Crew knew exactly what the captain expected of
them and ran a solid dive operation. Good briefings for every dive. Crew
was helpful and provided assistance with everything from diving to dining
to shore excursions. Boat is very spacious with plenty of showers and hot
water. The crew also provided many other opportunities to take the launch
and do various fishing or land excursions for the folks that didn't want to
do 5 dives a day. The Exumas had typical Bahamas marine life. Plenty to
photograph. Chef Kirk would accomodate special requests out of the galley,
food was plentiful. Alcoholic beverages were included in the price, but if
you'd prefer any premium beers or liquour, bring your own. Transportation
to and from the airport setup by the Aquacat staff and worked perfectly.
Good time, would go again.
