Comments I had previously gone on an Aqauacat trip, so knew what to expect and to bring with me. The boat was well maintained and clean on all levels, especially the engine room.

We had a group of 10, traveling with us. Experience levels of our group consisted of a non-diver, beginner divers taking cerification to experienced open water divers. The crew did their best to accomodate the non-diver with, snorkeling, fishing, kayaking, and beach excursions. They all had a great time. We have already booked another trip.

The food was excellent and type varied from meal to meal. The chef was able to accomodate special requests if he had the food available. Plenty of fruit and snacks available between dives.

The crew was excellent and did everything they could to accomodate us prior to diving and between dives. Dive briefs were well conducted, giving us expected conditions, marine life to look for, reef passageways, etc.

We had one day of rough weather. However,the Captain compensated by moving the boat to the leeward side of the island.
