This is a new operation launched in August 2004 by Chris
Alpers, former manager at Cayman Divers, and his partner Kate, an excellent
underwater videographer. Their boat, the Cats Meow, is handsomely
customized for extreme diving comfort, with capacity for six divers, a
cushioned and shaded area midship, and a cushioned 
open sitting area up front. It is conveniently moored at the Yacht Club
behind Seven Mile Beach. 
There are at least four reasons to go out with Chris and Kate. First, you
can schedule your trip at your own time, and maximize the chances of
getting the mooring at one of the premier dive spots, such as Eagle Ray
Pass. The larger boats that all head out at the same time in the morning
have to disperse themselves on a first come, first served basis. Second,
you dont have to do anything except dive, talk about diving, or think
about diving. All of the tanks are kept in the stern of the boat next to
the entry platform, so you just walk back, sit down, gear up, and roll in.
Third, Chris is very familiar with the dive sites from long experience,
goes directly to the best available spot, and leads a great dive. Fourth,
Kate is really talented with the video camera for big animals, micro fauna,
and divers in action. We went out as a family of four and enjoyed a
spectacular dive. Strongly recommended for carefree diving in complete
comfort. The cost reflects the quality of service, $100/person, and $100
for a trip video plus stills.;  
We stayed at London House on the non-commercial stretch of Seven Mile
Beach, and had a two bedroom condo with large living room, 2 ½
bathrooms and a kitchen at a reasonable price. However, a rental car is
essential to get to stores, restaurants, dive destinations, etc.
