Comments 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.
