I have been on other liveaboards ... the crew was the best ever ... boat was superior to all others.

The Vessel

Designed with You in Mind

The Aqua Cat was specifically designed with scuba divers and adventure travelers in mind.

  • 900-sq. ft. dive deck with individually assigned dive stations and storage
  • 11 large main deck cabins with king, queen and over-sized twin beds and private baths.  
  • Beds, bunks and pulldowns – flexibility for singles
  • Main salon with dining/living room areas and an alfresco deck
  • Upper deck with sundeck and bar

Non-divers can enjoy our land excursions and eco adventures as well as relax, read, and sunbathe. Do as much or as little as you like! 

All diving is done right from the Aqua Cat

  • The Sea Dog, a 28-foot jet drive boat – perfect for shore excursions and eco adventures
  • 2 dinghies for diving safety
