I loved the "extras" provided by the charter - transportation, microbrewery, ability to create our own wishlist each day.

Trip Info

The charter sailboat Cat Ppalu offers a few options!

1) You can book as an individual on one of our weeks set aside for folks who don’t necessarily travel in a pack. We’ll find other like minded divers to join you!

2) You can book a half boat charter on any week. A half boat charter is 6 guests and then we have the right to fill the rest of the boat with other divers. The rate is $1,795.00 per person plus $225.00 in fees*.

3) You can book a full boat charter and bring as many as 12 guests and keep the boat to yourselves for the week!

 The Cat Ppalu is available for longer charters. Contact our office for rates and availability.
