Comments This was my second trip on the Aquacat. We had 24 mostly experienced divers who had traveled together before. Ron was again our captain and you can not ask for a more skilled person in charge. We did have one rough crossing to Eluthera but no problem with hurricanes. Food was very good but not gourmet. Nobody went hungry. One of the highlights for me was the drift dives where we put everyone in the water from 5 different positions on the dive deck with negative buoyancy in less than a minute. Dive deck has two showers so I never had to use the stateroom shower. Crew knew what they were doing and did a good job of looking after us (even experienced divers make the occasional mistake of leaving the bungee cord attached to tank)
