This is our 4th or 5th time on the Aquacat and this was a two week trip, so
we were really looking forward to it.  The first week was beautifully calm
and diving was the usual good walls and gardens, with some unusual dive
sites (for the Aquacat) thrown in.  The crew, dive staff and captain and
everyone else, was friendly, organized and ran a safe and organized
operation.  Then, the second week, as we were in Georgetown in the Lower
Exumas, the beginnings of Hurricane Rita moved in!!  We were anchored for a
couple of days at Georgetown, Great Exuma, waiting for the storm to blow
over, then had some more days of low vis diving, due to the storm.  If the
weather hadn't kicked in, this would have been an excellent trip.  We
highly recommend the Aquacat, for good diving, excellent accommodations,
good food and most of all, a very competent and knowledgeable crew.  Just
try to miss the hurricanes! (Although, even at that, Captain Mark gave us
the best dives possible.)
