Beyond the thrill of swimming with sharks in their native habitat, we offer a passive shark feed dive each week for our liveaboard guests. The feeds allow you to closely observe the behaviors of these magnificent apex predators. We have a site in the Exumas and another in Eleuthera area – so no matter the itinerary – you can watch this event and take photos.
The newest member of our Bahamas fleet is the 102-foot long scuba diving liveaboard. Scuba Diving magazine voted it the Best Liveaboard in the world 3 years in a row. The tri-level Aqua Cat offers 11 passenger cabins – some of the largest in the dive liveaboard world, a spacious dive deck, a main salon for dining and relaxing, a sundeck with a panoramic view, and an alfresco bar.
The vessel cruises at a speed of 12-knots allowing, us to travel quickly between dive sites while her 35-ft. beam ensures a smooth ride. The Aqua Cat provides divers a luxury experience, but with a comfortable and casual vibe.
Aqua Cat has been rated #1 by the readers of Scuba Diving magazine for BEST CREW!
We have found very few recreational activities where the guests rely so heavily on the professionals in charge for their enjoyment and safety above and below the waterline.
We understand how valuable vacation time is and why you need to get the most out of every day. For this reason, we have assembled a top-notch team to meet your every need on board!
Experience the Aqua Cat Adventure
You can take a taxi which will cost about $40.00 or we can arrange transfers. For each pick-up, the cost is $18.00 per person one-way. You can book transfers by going to Ground Transfers. If you book transfers, you will find Mr Wright just outside the airport (by the railing). He will be holding a sign with the boat name on it. If you don’t see Mr. Wright immediately, ask anyone to point him out for you or you can reach him at 242.449.7862. Be sure to double check that you are on the right bus/van! No credit for missed transfers. Transfers need to be booked at least 3 day prior to your departure.
PLEASE NOTE: Effective January 14, 2023, the Aqua Cat moved back to Hurricane Hole Marina.
For flight planning, boarding is at 6:00pm on Saturday. We offer a welcome orientation, dinner and an important safety briefing immediately afterwards. It is important that you attend this informative meeting! Please plan your flights accordingly. If you are arriving earlier in the day, you may drop bags off at the boat prior to boarding. The Aqua Cat will depart Nassau early Sunday morning for the Exuma Cays – usually before 5:00am.
The Aqua Cat returns to Nassau the following Friday afternoon. Dinner ashore in Nassau is on your own Friday evening. All passengers must disembark on Saturday by 9:00am. You may leave your bags at the boat if you have a late afternoon flight and are welcome to use the showers and restroom on the dive deck.
Yes, Caribbean reef sharks and nurse sharks frequent many of our sites. We normally offer 1 shark feed on each trip. This is the perfect time to see sharks up close and in action!
