Comments Over all it was a great first expirence on a liveaboard. Ron the captian was great in welcoming everyone, and most of the staff were very helpful and friendly. Jim the cook did an outstanding job of serving good healthy delicious food, with plenty of salads, meat, fish and great deserts. The rooms were spacious enough. We had both a twin and and single bed, with a privite bathroom. The condition of the room was good, with fresh towels every other day. The daily routine was very regimented. Breakfast was at 8:00am every day, and our dive briefing was at 9:00am with our first dive at 9:30. Second dive was at 11:00, lunch was at 12:30. Another dive at 2:30pm and another at 4:30 with a night dive at 8:00pm. The briefing were short but well done before each dive. We had a good assortment of different kinds of dives. Wall dives, drift dives, reef dives, and plenty of opportunity to go deep if you wanted. The group of people were hard core divers. My wife and I had about 30 dives each when we arrived and we had the least expirence on board. Our only criticism of the operation was that we felt that their should have been more than one DM in the water with a group of 20 divers. Would we go with Aqua Cat again? Oh yes, in a heart beat!
